All Minxed Up

You may have noticed that I referenced a very important manicure here and here. Having nothing to do with cooking I've decided to reveal them now. Ta-dah!

What is so special about this manicure? For one thing it is not a polish but a special adhesive that is applied with heat. It's called Minx. For another thing, the only reason that I got Minxed is because my fabulous jewelry designing and blogging friend Wendy (and Jen) and I had too much to drink one night, and I ended up taking a few photos of her nails, one of which ended up here. The Minx people saw it, wanted to use the photo and to also give us both manicures in hopes that we might try to take some more fabulous Minx photos. Read a fantastic summary of our experience on Wendy's blog. Sadly, we forgot to drink more Prosecco! (Incidentally, the nails have held up since Saturday, even during my Bolognese extravaganza of washing and chopping and cooking, the same afternoon that we took the majority of our photos.) Stay tuned for more experiences with our Minx nails. They have a very special event to attend tonight...
