Have U Been "Minxed"?

Minx Nails is a trend that has been around for a while and worn by numerous celebrities.  This metallic nail trend has made its way to local nail salon and spas and many people are choosing minx over their regular manicure or acryllic nails.

Minx is made from a thin film foil with an adhesive underside that is applied using a heat source.  It is a short, painless process and the foil won't chip or peel off.  It definitely cuts down on the time spent in your manicurist's chair. Images can be printed on the foil coverings to create bold, eye catching designs.

Celebrities such as Beyonce, Rihanna, Solange, LeToya Luckett, and many more have been spotted on numerous occasions rocking Minx.
