If my clients want their Minx to last longer, can I seal it with a gel top coat? And will this ruin the shiny chrome effect of the Minx?
Minx does not advocate the use of gel on top of Minx, but in my experience it may be a wise choice in certain cases, such as if the client has very oily nails or works a lot in water. Applying gel on top will take the shine down a bit. It’s important to have a good understanding of proper Minx application and the importance of heat before using anything on top. It must be sold as an “add-on”. Minx is marketed as needing no base or top coat. Since using gel over Minx is not part of the Minx process you should charge more for the gel coat. A suggested way to use gel and Minx is to consider applying gel over a client’s natural nail plate before applying Minx, in cases where there are ridges or natural nail damage, so that there is a smooth surface to apply the Minx. — Naja Rickette is a Minx Master and lead trainer.
I have a station with a couple of drawers. However, since I do regular and colored acrylics, nail polish, gel-polish, and glitters/foils, I can’t seem to store everything without looking like a hoarder. How can I store all of my nail products and keep it neat and organized?
I want to promote my nail business by wearing an eye-catching design on my own nails. What designs do you most get stopped on the street for, and where (the grocery store, the bank, etc.) do you most frequently get noticed?
I am an apprentice in a natural nail salon. Sometimes I get requests for nail art. I would love to learn how to do different nail designs, but I am a beginner. I live in Virginia and there are never nail seminars or lectures or even hands-on classes here. Do you have any suggestions on learning nail art designs when there is no one in my area to teach it? Watching videos is good but sometimes you just need hands-on.
