NAILS—London cult favorite nail art studio WAH Nails is expanding their empire into publishing. Wah founder Sharmadean Reid's tome The WAH Nails Book of Nail Art will be released in the UK in April and in the US in October. We can only hope that the American launch will be accompanied by news that WAH is finally opening a location on the other side of the Atlantic. Also, while we're wishing for things, we'd like a pet unicorn. [Racked Inbox]
MAKEUP—Subscription beauty company Birchbox did a one-off men's box for the holiday season, and it was such a hit that they're bringing the service back permanently. They haven't named a launch date yet, but there's a signup page for everyone who wants to be in on the ground floor. For the passive-agressive out there, this is a great time to sign your boyfriend up for some grooming products. [Racked Inbox]
