    Here is the manicure’s next generation: Sheets of metallic film are heat-adhered to the nail, then filed into shape. The films, by a company called Minx, need no drying and last, without a chip, for about two weeks. Though it sounds potentially tacky, the result is sleek, slightly androidy, and incredibly cool-looking. Ten gleaming silver fingertips with black tiger stripes are dramatic; if you’re timid, start with a single gold pinkie. You can also customize the films with a photo (your pet) or logo (AC/DC). Have yours done by Honey, who has a space at De Lux. For $55, she’ll do a mini manicure and apply a full set of Minx. The procedure requires some setup, so make an appointment.

I found the above article courtesy of  As seen and mentioned on “Housewives of Atlanta” the new wave of mani/pedi are “Minx”. I have not tried it yet and at $55 a pop I won’t be trying it any time soon! My love for fashion and creativity I will search high and low for a cheaper version.
