A client of mine wants Minxed toenails, but I think her pinky toe is way too small for the coating. How should I handle this so she can still get a Minx-like nail style?
There are some pinky toes that are either non-existent or way too small for the Minx to actually adhere. In these cases, I will use a polish that complements the Minx. If I’m using Silver or Gold Lightning Minx, then I’ll use silver or gold metallic polish. If I’m using a pattern like Pink Cheetah, then a black-on-pink toe could work — just use whatever the most prominent color is of the Minx. It blends right in and no one notices. You can also get creative. For instance I once used a gold-and-white hound’s-tooth patterned Minx on a client, then on the client’s next visit I couldn’t for the life of me remove her pinky toe Minx…until I finally realized that I had painted it white with a little splash of gold to blend in with the Minx pattern. It looked so good I didn’t even know it was polish. — Naja Rickette is a Minx Master and lead trainer.
