An Introduction to Minx Nails
To get Minx week started, we thought we’d give everyone a little background about the company, the product and their recent successes.
The Original Minxes
The company was founded in 2006 as the brainchild of Janice Jordan & Dawn Lynch-Goodwin and is based in Southern California. They developed a flexible film that can be quickly applied to the nail using heat & pressure.
Minx Nail Armor is available in a variety of metallics, hundreds of standard designs and graphics, plus Minx can be customised with any pattern or photo. The overlays last approximately four to eight days on the fingers, and up to four weeks on the toes.
There are over 170 designs available on the site and the list is always growing.
