I know minx nails aren't exactly anything new, but I tried them for the first time last week. For those of you who are not familiar with minx nails- to put it simply, they have a heat activated adhesive back which allows you to shape the piece to your nail accordingly. Many people then use tiny scissors to cut off access pieces. I had mine done at the salon and was surprised at how long it took! I thought "hey they are just stickers, it probably takes 15 minutes to slap them on." No no no. My manicurist was very precise with the shaping and cutting of each sticker to the shape of my nail. It took her about an hour and twenty minutes, which is too long for me. I do love these nails though!
