POTD: Minx "Funky Design"

So I am back from a weekend of learning how to identify and record Scottish water voles and feel most refreshed and ready to rock n' roll again despite the fact it is going to be an incredibly stressy week ahead..

And after soaking my tired little feet after a weekend in walking boots I finally got to try my new Minx nail coverings!! This one is called "Funky Design" and it is the juiciest of the Minxs and fantastic for summer toes.

I took a photo of my kit for you. I use an 150watt infrared bulb to apply these (it was originally used for deep tissue massage pre-treatment heat therapy). But remember, if you want to use infrared light; it is VERY hot and it can seriously burn you if you are not careful!

I trimmed some of the Minx stickers into two bits as the toenails are so tiny and one sticker will easy do two or three little toe nails.

You use the glassfile to file in a downward motion to remove the excess Minx. You can use a plastic cuticle pusher to make sure the Minx is stuck firmly down the sidewalls if your nails have a deep 'c' curve.

Minx is quick, easy and gorgeous, and if you prep the nail properly before application your Minx will look nice for 2 weeks easy :) if there is a salon that offer it near you, consider getting it done! The original Gold and Silver Lightning ones are amazing on toes also.
