Having been the rage in Hollywood for years, Minx nail art has finally hit South African shores and we just had to try it for ourselves!

Minx is a solid nail coating that is applied to the surface of your nails (either on top of your natural nail, or on top of your gel or acrylic nails). Think of a coat of nail polish that has been applied with fabulous designs, and you will get the idea! 

Minx is available in metallics, graphics and prints and can even be customized using photos (a la Katy Perry who customized hers using photos of hubby, Russell Brand.) Minx is mess-free and is applied at specialised nail salons using a heat lamp to activate the adhesive and to create a seal. Once the seal is broken (using an orange stick), the entire nail coating can be removed with no damage to the nail bed. And unlike nail polish, there is no drying time needed so no more smudging or sitting around waiting for them to dry!

This really is such a fun way of jazzing up your nails for the weekend, parties or special occasions (teenagers will LOVE this!) and you can really let your imagination run wild. Minx is less expensive than gel or acrylic nails and lasts longer than nail polish, so one can expect it to last for just over a week on the hands, and up to four weeks on the feet.
