I was at my local shopping center,and thought I would browse the nail isle. Everyone is talking about the latest and greatest manicure looks out there for spring,and one of the most popular trends is the Minx nail designs.
Quite a few companies have decided to try to duplicate this look and have launched their own brand of nail foils, and press on polish tabs. I happened to spy the cute Broadway Nail Dress kit,and thought I would give it a try, just for fun.The price was right, $5.99,plus there was a $1.00 off coupon on top of that, so for $4.99 I thought, why not?
What they don't tell you: They do state on the box to use a top coat. What they forgot is that it is IMPERATIVE. This basically helps to seal the foil to your nails,and prevents it from lifting,as well as preventing normal wear and tear at the nail tips.
*** HINT**** Wrap the top coat slightly under your nail edges when applying, it will really make these last. I used CHI Ceramic Nail Base and Top Coat,and even after doing dishes and cleaning, day 2 they are still going strong,no peeling.
It was so great to be able to get the Minx look without paying the big price tag. Will you be trying these??? Would love some feedback on it if you do. There's a pink and orange tiger print calling my name!
Would I buy these again? Yes, I thought they were great fun, and they are perfect for a "Night on the Town" look. I wasn't really sure how well they would wear, but was very impressed with the fact that they didn't lift after exposure to water and cleaning, etc.
Until next time~
