"And you don’t do it for the man, men never notice" - Drake
I'm not sure what grabs me the most... the way light reflects off of their shiny surface or the fact that they're low maintenance and have a long life expectancy. Either way, Minx nails are great addition to the nail art culture.
What are they? A solid film with adhesive on the back that's heat activated. Just imagine really shiny stickers.
How Does it Work? Just like any other visit to the nail salon, you start off with a manicure. After making sure your nails are perfectly shaped the film is applied. There's no top coat or drying time. After the excess film is cut to match your nail shape you're all set to go. The process probably takes 35 minutes or less, which is about the same amount of time I'd wait for a regular manicure.
How Long Do They Last? Manicure's are supposed to last a week, while pedicures should last up to five weeks. I was advised to firmly press the edges of my nails whenever I got a chance and to stay away from greasy substances in order to keep them looking fresh. I only noticed a little bit of wear on the edge of my nails after the fifth day.
Are They Worth it? Of course! My nails have never received so many compliments. Minx are literally conversation starters!
