Minx Nails is a huge trend at the moment amongst beauty lovers and since seeing all the biggest names in Hollywood such as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Jessie J playing around with these funky designs, it is definitely something to try and a fabulous fashion accessory to have!
LUXO had the chance to experience what MINX nails is all about from expert, and owner of Maskscara, Eleni Fourie who was kind enough to give us an exclusive on how to get "minxed", what else is to come and how fabulous this trend is for the fashion industry.
When choosing a print/design for you minx experience, it can be a bit overwhelming as there are more than 300 different designs to choose from. We went for one of the most popular choices, the metallic leopard print design.
So how does it work?
Minx nails is a nail art sticker that can take on any form or shape once it has been heated. The biggest trick when it comes to minx, is to prepare the nails the right way before applying the nail sticker. Once the nails are prepared and buffed the right way, you stick on the design, cut off the part of the sticker that hangs over the nail and file away all the little sharp edges. That is it! As simple as one two three. Here's what Eleni's nails looked like in a more tribal design.
But besides Minx being the perfect nail accessory to your wardrobe, at Maskscara you can get a variety of awesome designs/art done. Metallic lips or eyes (better known as Glitzy Lips) as well as glitter lip tattoos (Violent Lips) are only two other examples with many more amazing things in store (I recommend you check it out at MASKSCARA based in Parklands, Cape Town.)
