Nail File: Foil Art at MiniLuxe

We all know how obsessed with my fingertips I am. I probably own every color in the rainbow and have tested every product know to man related to nails and cuticles. I love a good shellac from time to time and my go to is always MiniLuxe. Calm, clean, and the most advanced in nail technology, MiniLuxe will not disappoint.

I heard about their foil art and just had to try it. There is an array of colors to choose from like hot pink to funky blues, and of course my favorites, gold and silver. The foils are set over a shellac manicure which lasts two weeks and each one leaves a slighty different pattern on each nail.

Then, there was the matter of picking my base color. This took me some time. MiniLuxe carries not only CND but OPI and Essie colors for the shellac. I opted for Overly Onyx, a cool grey, black.

La La came over who is adorable and also an artist telling me she can do all kinds of fun nail art. They also offer an Ombre Glitter Manicure I'm dying to try. The result of my Foil Manicure s just awesome, a new trend in nail art. For the next two weeks, I'm styling and don't have to worry about chips or breaks.

MiniLuxe is just a fun place to treat yourself and looking at all the fun goodies they have for sale is a treat.
This service can be enjoyed on shellac mani’s only and is $3 per nail or 2 nails for $5. All fingers are an additional $15.
Available at MiniLuxe Boston, Hingham, Newton Centre, Lexington  & Lynnfield!

We are all fascinated when we hear the news of a celebrity breakup. How could two seemingly perfect human beings find fault in each other? What went wrong? The latest in our breakup file is that of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin. The news is everywhere and of course we want every detail so much so that celebrities feel the need to put out an official statement to publicly end their love affair. I didn't even want my latest breakup to hit Facebook. Paltrow took to her criticized website Goop to share the news. However, this statement was a little different leaving the emotionally challenged wondering, what is conscious uncoupling?

"We have always conducted our relationship privately," Paltrow stated, "and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."

Conscious Uncoupling is a term coined by famous author Katherine Woodward Thomas and is non-dramatic approach to end a relationship without pointing fingers. In a five week program called "The Art of Conscious Uncoupling", couples learn to separate in a healthy, mature manner in order to fully heal and move on. 

According to Thomas, most breakups take an average of five years to heal from and in learning to heal these wounds, you may find a true, meaningful relationship. Self-reflection and breathing exercises help to lesson victimization and drama. I really hope it doesn't take five years to heal because that means I have three more to go from my past breakup. Truth is, I think I am OK.

So let's thank Gwyneth for opening our eyes to a new, peaceful trend in breaking up and a new term for us to throw around over mimosas at brunch. I wonder who will be the next couple to consciously uncouple? Brad and Angelina? I guess I'll have to keep reading Us Weekly to find out.
