What Are Minx Nails? – Simple Nail Designs

Nail polish with a shield of armor, literally.

Are you looking for nails that are weatherproof, chip proof and acts like a shield of armor? A rising trend in fashion is Minx nails. These simple nail designs are foils that come pre-made with designs. They simply have to be applied and you have durable nails for at least 1-2 weeks. You get nails so perfect that they will make most people do a double-take. What’s the catch? They are best applied by professionals, but this article will provide several ideas on how you can be a part of the Minx experience too!

With simple nail designs like Minx, the possibilities are endless. Many celebrities and models wear Minx nails for an impeccable finish. It is very common for people to go the simple route and get gold or silver Minx nails. If that sounds boring, think again. Imagine a piece of shiny, gold foil paper being adhered to your nail. The result is so shiny and smooth that it looks like you have 14k gold on your fingers! Minx nails often use metallic backdrops to draw attention and they come in many simple designs from plaid, stripes, hearts and fire images.

What’s the process?

Minx is a solid film with an adhesive that is activated by heat. The heat softens the film allowing it to cater to the shape of the nail. No top coat is needed as the film itself is very shiny. The Minx is easily removable with heat.

If you are about doing simple nail designs yourself, there are several options. It is recommended that most women simply go to a salon that offers this service. This is because the technician has been trained in applying Minx nails. Minx nails tend to be pricey compared to other nail services, but remember that they are durable and will not chip. You can also purchase starter kits online.

An alternative to Minx nails is foils. Foils come in solid metallic colors and simple nail designs as well. They are very affordable and are easy to apply yourself. They also do not require heat to apply.
