How to use nap in a sentence?

    Often we get asked if having lash extensions applied will hurt, and that's also a common misperception as the application process is so comfortable that the majority of our guests fall asleep and take what we like to call a lash nap, you can shower, swim, exercise and sweat and they will stay intact. It's a common misconception that they are more temporary or that swimming and contact with water is prohibited.
