Are there certain styles of Minx I should use on clients who have ridged nails?


I’ve noticed that nail ridges can show through Minx nail coatings. Are there certain styles of Minx that I should use (or not use) on clients who have very ridged nails?


If someone has deep ridges in the nails Minx may not cover them up. In particular, Silver and Gold Lightning Minx is like spandex for the nail — it will show all imperfections. For clients who have ridged nails but like the chrome look of Gold and Silver Lightning, then suggest patterns that are still in the metallic range but that have a design that can camouflage ridges or an otherwise uneven nail plate. Some good options are the metallic fishnets, skulls, and cheetah patterns. — Naja Rickette is a Minx Master and lead trainer.
