Behold! My latest Minx manicure.
Here’s a close-up.
Of course, today’s holiday is St. Patrick’s Day, which totally slipped my mind when I went to get a pedicure. I tried to pick a polish to complement one of the colors in my Minx.
People have been noticing the green all day and asking me if I’m Irish. I feel like saying, “No, just my toes.”
If you do try Minx, please remove it with care. You can’t yank it off whenever the urge strikes you, as it once did me during the two-minute walk from the nearest drugstore to my house. I can testify that such behavior will, as a friend put it, “trash [your] nails.” Use a hair dryer to heat the Minx one by one and peel them off in a side-to-side motion. I’ve done that with no damage whatsoever. That’s the Minx-approved removal technique. But Janice recently told me that Lisa Logan, the manicurist who has been doing Beyonce’s nails, says traditional nail polish remover works too, so I will try that and report back.
*Minx sent me three designs to try but I still paid full price for the manicure at Fifi Nail Salon, the same way you pay when you bring your own polish to a manicure. It’s hard to believe considering the number of posts I’ve done on Minx, but I’m not employed by the company. I just like the way the product looks and the fact that it doesn’t chip in a day like regular polish. For a description of how Minx works, read my first post on it.
UPDATED TO ADD: Hot damn! I forgot St. Coco’s Day AGAIN!
