Trend Alert: Minx Nails
I was dying to have my nails minxed but there are zero salons in my area that are skilled in that area. Boo! I went to walmart and picked up a “Chrome” nail polish pen by Sally Hansen and it was not shiny enough. The picture below is what minxing is suppose to look like and I had my heart set on something at least close to it. Then I found these bad boys (at Walmart)! The best part? They were only $5!
The picture to the top right is true to its shiny and design. I loved them. The only thing I would have changed is to make the box have enough nails to have 2 sets, one plain and the other zebra print.
Being a fan of glue on nails for a while now, I stopped in Sally Beauty Supply West Covina for some fall/winter nail polishes and bumped into a section full of minx inspired nails.
The thing I hated about them was that they were the stick on nails. Quick fix: trash the stickers and reach for your handy dandy nail glue!
I loved the dimensions the nails had on them.
Here is my little set up. I had my Q-Tips to soak up any extra glue that came out from under the nails, my nail file and plenty of light.
They were far too long for my taste…
…I took care of that really quick. It doesn’t look like I took down much but I sure did.
I cut them down till they hit my skin. I hate long nails! Just not sanitary for Mommy’s, or at least not this mommy haha.
I wanted to show you all an up close picture of how perfect these nails sit on my natural nails. Almost like they were made for me haha.
So what do you think? Too much? Just right? Would you try them?
I like them, and they didn’t hurt my pocket. Only $4 at Sally’s!
