You Little Minx

When I first heard about the new rage in manicures — Minx — I was a little skeptical, even though it’s all the rage in Hollywood. I didn’t know what to think, because I have lovely natural nails, and I don’t like what artificial nails do to the real thing. But once I found out that Minx can be applied to natural and artificial nails, I was sold.

What exactly is Minx? It’s a heat-activated solid film with an adhesive base. It comes in a huge variety of colors and finishes; think metallics, plaid, polka dots, crazy designs — just about anything you can dream up. It lasts for weeks, requires no drying time, never chips, is easily removed at home or in the salon…and did we mention the astonishing array of designs available?

Check it out for yourself tonight at Minx and Martinis: A Girl’s Happy Hour Party, hosted by File and Style, 2920 East Colfax Avenue, at 5 p.m. There will be free martinis and specials on all Minx manicures and pedicures, plus sales on all the new winter fashions. For more information, call 720-941-8822; to learn more about Minx, visit
