Free at Ace Hotel: Minx Manicures
Well, I could talk about Fleet week, the week when New York honors the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps, hosting extensive military demonstrations, as well as a providing an opportunity for visitors to go aboard ships. I could also talk about the importance of Memorial Day beyond simply the day off aspect. But then it would be difficult – from a literary perspective – for me to work in the FREE manicure offer at Ace Hotel on Saturday (according to Metromix), so I’ll just skip straight to it.
Now since it’s at Ace Hotel, you can bet that the manicure is a bit different and way fancier then the usual two-coat polish. In fact, the treatment normally costs $55. And even has a snazzy name: Minx manicure. From what I am reading, Minx manicures involve application of a several millimeters of film'”with a heat-activated adhesive'”specifically measured to fit each nail. Color and print options vary from metallics, to plaids, to animal prints, to tie-dyes. Maybe in honor of Memorial Day, you could ask for some red, white, and blue, combo. Oh yeah baby, I am so good at tying things up!
