A few months ago we did a holiday beauty shoot with Kim Kardashian wearing Minx on her nails. They looked amazing for this time of year and were the shiniest shade of gold you could ever imagine (they literally looked like mirrors)! I've been dying to try it out for myself ever since.
If you haven't heard of Minx yet, it's a nail treatment that applies flexible film strips in foils, sparkly metallics, designs or any color you can imagine, with a heat treatment that lasts way longer than regular polish (between 2 and 4 weeks!). It's become popular lately thanks to fans like Lady Gaga, Victoria Beckham, Blake Lively, Beyonce and Kim Kardashian, of course, among others.

I figured having Minx applied in the city would be pretty pricey, but when I looked into it, I was pleased to find out that Vada Spa, in the West Village, offers Minx services for not much more than a regular manicure, at $40 for a Minx Mani and $50 for a Minx Pedi!
And the best part? I contacted Vada to see if they'd extend a discount for Dream & Dress readers and they happily agreed! Not only that, they threw in a $5 gift certificate for you to use on any future spa services!
All you have to do is print out the coupon above for 25% off Minx services and bring it in on your next visit. You can also click here to purchase products and services from their website and redeem your coupon by entering the promo code: "dress25" at check out.
It doesn't expire until January 1st, so you have all through the holidays to get them done! Just think how amazing metallic silver nails will look against your sparkly mini on New Years Eve! I can't wait to get mine! I'll be sure to post pictures of how they look, and would love to see how all of yours' turn out as well!
