Photo: @thenailsocial With its comfy chairs, provided iPads and complimentary glass of wine (on Fridays and Saturdays), The Nail Social is a perfect way to unwind after a busy week. Even better, the business is socially conscious: It uses non-toxic, fair-trade, cruelty-free products, and was established to train and employ local underprivileged women. So, you’ll feel extra good about that $12 manicure. Men, check out the Gentlemen’s Signature mani-pedi combo ($75), which includes nail shaping, a little cuticle love, massage and a buff shine. 42A Haji Lane; www.thenailsocial.co The original story was first featured on www.thefinder.com.sg.
