Alright ladies, it’s time to Minx it! The ultimate chrome effect you can give your nails! The way to wear your nails now that my Nail It! post cannot show. So here it goes. If you don’t know what Minx nails are, it is basically a sheet of stickers that are cut and tape on to your nails. Go to Minx‘s official website to find out more or search it over YouTube, there are plenty of videos. First, I must give credit to my friend HKShoegeek who told me about this upcoming trend and asked me if I know a place that does this. Apparently, there was a Minx counter at the I.T grand opening party, which we went together on April 26, but I totally didn’t see it and left while the queue was too long and crowded for her even to get a glimpse. So after some research and asking around, one of my girlfriends went and had them done at E-nail in Causeway Bay. Bbbbbrilliant babe!! She says that you can share your package with a friend and packages over HK$6,000 is doing half-price. The nails can be scratched easily so it is recommended to reapply topcoat every other day. You can bet I will go try it when I can fit it in my schedule, but if you can’t wait for my review, you can always give me yours!E-Nail 26/F Capital Centre Tower II, Jardine Cresent, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong Tel: +852 2147 0200
Beauty Rescue 101: If unfortunately, your nails are stained by poor quality nail varnish and no amount of polish remover can get the stain out, try cutting up open a lemon in half and dipping your fingertips in to the fruit. You might have to do it over a period of time. If that doesn’t work, mix ½ peroxide with ½ water and soak for 10 minutes, repeat if necessary. This is considered a nail bleach in professional salons. If there’s no peroxide to be found, reach for a whitening toothpaste or mouthwash that has peroxide or baking soda in it and slap it on the stains. In this case, you won’t need to dilute it with water. If the results are still not satisfactory, try buffing away the top layer of discolouration with a nail buffer and wait for your nail to grow. In any event, contact a trusted manicurist for advice. Meanwhile, keep your nail cuticles clean and tidy and try to cut away any discolouration on or around the cuticles because that might get into the nail bed and become permanent. Nail polish is something you should never be cheap on, the consequences of using a poor quality product can be horrific and irreversible. Always buy a reputable brand from a trusted licensed retailer, wear a basecoat and wash off your varnish after no longer than three days.
