Back in October, my girl Dorothy pampered me and took me to Bliss Spa to get my first set of Minx Nails. We were both super excited since it was our first time but was disappointed with the service and lack of film choices. We were basically rushed through the entire process, once we sat down we were rushed to choose our nail designs (not much to choose from) since they had another appointment after us so they didn’t want to be “late”. Wasn’t feelin’ that but we sucked it up since we wanted to get it pretty badly and sat through it. The process was easy, they filed our nails and then measured the nail against the film to get the correct size (it’s never perfect since it is made of film), then heated the film under a lamp and applied it to the nail then filed it to fit the nail. The good thing about Minx is that it is applied with heat so there’s no fuss with drying and smudging but the catch is it doesn’t last very long and rips off easily. Both our nail technicians didn’t do a good job, a lot of it started peeling off before we left the salon (had them fix it) and a few of our nails were filed super crooked especially Dorothy’s. The whole process took about 45 minutes. The end result of the Minx Nails is pretty amazing, it lasted about 2 weeks. I hope the next time I get Minx, I will have a better experience.
