Just Another Mani Monday

… plus unleashing your inner supermodel and second-hand scores


HAND JIVE: It’s OPI Manicure Monday at the Elle Shopping A-Z Style Pod at Bal Harbour Shops. That means you can get your nails did for nothing. High five. 9700 Collins Ave., Bal Harbour; 305.864.1801 

STRIKE A POSE: If your Facebook picture looks more like you from 10 years back, features you in various states of drunken stupor or still has you wearing last year’s Halloween costume, head over to Bloomie’s today from 2 until 7 p.m. for its Glamorize Your Social Networking Page with Estee Lauder event. Beauty experts will be on tap to give you a quick makeover, followed by professional photogs to snap your pic. You’ll get a printout of your pic and they’ll download the shot for you to your page. Your sixth grade ex-boyfriend will be eating his heart out. Bloomingdale’s Aventura, 19555 Biscayne Blvd., Aventura; 305.792.1000 

THRIFTY AND NIFTY: If this economic slump has taught us anything, it’s big spending is bogus. But being frugal doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style, especially with kitchy second-hand stores popping up like corn in a kettle. Enter Midtown Consignment, a den for distinctive décor with a pop culture twist, and Lotus House Thrift, a boutique layout with thrift store prices. Score old school video game machines (yes, like the ones at your childhood arcade) at the prior and designer duds at the latter. It’s never too late to give cool stuff a second chance. Midtown Consignment, 2328 N. Miami Ave., Miami; 305.573.5307 and Lotus House Thrift, 203 N.W. 36th St., Wynwood; 305.576.4112
