Will You Get "Minxed" for Christmas???

Ok, get your mind out of the gutter......I'm talking about the coolest new thing in fingernails....MINXING!!! I saw a picture of these nails about a month ago and just had to have the polish, but it's not polish, it's minxing. So what is minxing you ask??? I will tell you. Minxing is a paper wrap for your fingernails. It's not fake nails or polish but an actual light weight piece of paper the nail stylist shapes to your fingernails. It lasts about a week and if you want it off sooner you simply soak your nails in luke warm water and soap. The sites say it's great for your nails and completely eco-friendly!! The "minxing" costs anywhere from $40-$60. I'm sure that seems a bit steep for a week but come on, it's the holidays!!!

I literally spent all day yesterday searching for something, ANYTHING close to what this looks like and came out a bit short. I went from store to store looking and had a few options but finally decided on Nicole by O.P.I's version "Positive Energy" set me back a whole $8.

I've been searching for Sally Hansen Chrome but could not find it anywhere. When I got home and settled in for the night I decided to do some research. Turns out the Chrome nail polish is flying off the shelves since it's the closest thing people can find to actual minxing.

If anyone gets this done before me, let me know! I would love to see your results.

I'm thinking I'll paint mine blackberry with a racing stripe down the middle of 'chrome' or 'positive energy' for our music performance at Grace Haven Sunday. Maybe having snazzy nails will help me hit the high notes!
