Teyana Taylor recently volunteered to purchase this Black nail tech’s luxury press-on nails after the owner reached out to the “Wake Up Love” singer on Twitter.

The Twitter user and luxury press-on nail designer @AsisaTheMua tweeted Taylor offering to send the artist set of her press-on nails free of charge. However, Taylor refused to take them for free and responded asking for the nail tech’s website so she could pay for a set.

“I much rather support and buy them, you have a website?” Taylor tweeted to the nail artist. Asia then swiftly responded with her website link. That was followed by Teyana purchasing. a box for herself.

Taylor made the purchase of the nail set on Black Out Tuesday, a movement to encourage the support of Black-owned businesses. Shortly, after the singer made her purchase, and shared it on social media the nail artists’ entire collection of press-ons sold out.
