Getting Minx Nails (for the first time ever)

My gold Minx nails

I know Minx nails are old news now, but this was actually the very first time I got it done! Minx set up a table at the Royal York hotel where most of the action was happening in between events at IIFA, so I helped myself to a dry manicure.

Minx nail sheets

Applying the nail sheet after filing

The process was pretty fast and simple — they file your nail bed, then warm a thin nail sheet with the design of your choosing under a heat lamp, apply it to your nail, and file away the excess.

Your nails might looks scary for two minutes

The process is not too long and since I’ve got it done, I’ve had a fair amount of people grab my hands for a closer look. The gold was quite stunning for the first few days. It was supposed to last at least 10 days though and mine barely made it to 7 days before it started peeling.

Have any of you ever gotten Minx’d? What did you think?

    I wear nothing but Minx on my toes. It lasts much longer on your toes. I get compliments everywhere I go.

    Special occasions only because minx peels too fast. Nail strips last longer although the variety is not the as good .
