Where: There are many Minx Certified salons around London. Visit www.minxnails.com/findastylist for your nearest salon. There is also a mobile stylist, Holly Belm, who works in London and surrounding areas.
What happens:The first step is to choose your favourite design from the vast, ever-expanding range. These range from solid metallics, various animal prints, floral patterns and many more.
Once you have made the difficult selection of your chosen design, they are sized to your nails to ensure the best possible fit for a perfect finish. Minx nails are a solid film with heat activated adhesive backing, which allows the film to mould to the curve of the nail and seal it onto the nail bed. There are absolutely no chemicals involved in the application of Minx, only heat and pressure. Any excess is removed using a specifically designed Minx glass nail file.
The extensive list of different patterns and designs means you may want to frequently change your nails. This is easy enough; just as it takes heat to apply, it takes only heat to remove. This can be as simple as a hairdryer in your own bedroom. Once the seal is broken, the film easily peels away, leaving your nails bare and free to experiment with more designs, with absolutely no damage or chipping to your nails.
They last up to six weeks on toenails, and around 10 days on fingernails, as the nail grows out leaving a gap between the pattern and the cuticle.
Cost: The average cost is between £25 and £35 for a full manicure set, and a little extra for the pedicure set in London salons.Read more »
