You Minx!

Did anybody else say the title 'You Minx' in a Carry On movie voice? No? Just me...

Last week I spent a morning learning how to apply Minx nails and as I'm not a nail technician or manicurist, nor am I training to be one, I learned from an application only perspective.

To begin with, we undertook basic nail prep which included but was not limited to:
  • Sanitising the nails
  • Basic cuticle prep
  • Applying a base coat to ensure longevity

Once the nail was prepared we set about selecting and applying the Minx.

 As you can see, Minx comes in a huge variety of colours and designs. What you see above is only a small indication of the vast Minx foils.

Applying the Minx is a tricky process initially; cutting the Minx to size and trying to achieve perfect application is definitely fiddly however as with most things, practice really is everything.

I've tried to keep this quite short so if there's anything I haven't covered or you have any questions, please ask :)

Have a lovely week.
