British company Nails Inc. will be operating a pop-up nail salon at Henri Bendel now through May 10, for the first time bringing their signature Three-Week, Minx and Buff-and-Polish manicures to the U.S. We're crossing our (well-polished) fingers that they decide to set up shop permanently somewhere in the city.
The Three-Week (a.k.a. working girl's best friend) manicure has caught on like wildfire for its chip-proof finish -- a special process of acetone, special gel color and an intense drying process. At $45 it's like three manicures in one with only one trip -- not altogether a bad deal. The nail's growth is what ages the manicure, but apparently, on the toes it will likely outlast its name. The Three-Week is the hot ticket, but folks also clamor for the groovy metallic Minx and classic Buff-and-Polish as well.
