What exactly is Minx?
Minx is a solid film with an adhesive back that is heat activated. The heat gives Minx the conformability to fit over the compound curves of nails and seals it onto the nail bed. Minx is brewed in North County, San Diego, California. The patent pending proprietary material Minx is made of can be easily removed with heat by either the manicurist or the client.

If Minx is applied and removed with heat can I go into a hot tub wearing Minx?
Yes, when applied correctly Minx has a waterproof seal that will not release until the seal is broken by lifting the edge with a finger nail or object such as an orange stick.

How long does Minx last?
It depends on several factors; the most important being proper application. The norm being 1-2 weeks on fingers and 4-6 weeks on toes. Minx does not chip, it may wear slightly at the free edge of the nails that are heavily used but will not wear any further.

Do I need a top or base coat?
No, you need a clean, dry surface and Minx.

Can I apply the clear Minx over nail polish to help protect the polish and nail?
It depends on the nail polish and the grip the polish has to the nail plate. If there is good adhesion Minx works nicely over polish. If not it may take the polish completely off the nail. 

Can I apply Minx on acrylics, gels, silk wraps, and or natural nails?
You can apply Minx on any of the above surfaces.

How long does it take to apply Minx?
In the same amount of time you would apply nail polish. (includes base coat, two color coats and a top coat)

How long does it take to dry?
Minx requires no drying time. When you are finished you can leave immediately. Because Minx is a dry coating there is no smudging.
