Minx nails


I got these minx nails done the other day. I have been wanting them done for a while, and finally got a chance. The process took about an hour, costing 30 at nails inc. The lady basically matched my nail with a sticker, heated the stickers with the light, then stuck them on and smoothed them out. After- she filed the end down so it was sealed at the end.

I was expecting the nails to be perfect smooth, but they weren't. Some of the stickers didn't cover my whole nail, and some had air bubbles. I don't know if it was just the lady that did them who was crap, or if this happens to everyone. She told me minx on my hands wouldn't last very long, but I didn't even last 2 days with them. When she finished my nails I was pretty happy with them, they were different and looked good. But when I looked closer the ends were rough, which was frustrating, and some were bumpy and jagged. I tried filing down the end myself, but that just made it worse because the sticker started to wear out and look messy. I ended up peeling them off after a little over a day! (waste of money!)

I am glad I tried them, but I don't think I'd ever get them done again. The process was long and looked so fiddly, but they didn't last either. Maybe other places do them better and I got a bad experience, but I will be keeping away from them!
