Aww man this takes me back to my days in Ms Kott’s cosmetology class. Â She had a nail tech desk to teach us the finer points of a mani and pedi…and on our clinic days we’d get to do our own hair and nails and I’d always chose to do, nail foils. Â And with the introduction of Minx nails and the popularity of things shiny, I ran across a website that sold the foil nails and once again I felt like a school girl.
Ok so with the passage of the decades, I had forgotten why exactly the foil nail craze didn’t take off. Just a few points. Minx is cool but with the expensive price, for me it really isn’t much of an option since you can pay upwards to $75 and they only last and look good for about 3 days.
where with the foil manicure you can buy them for $1.00 for a few feet of the product. Â So an order can last you forever.
Please keep in mind this is a SPECIALÂ OCCASION manicure, definitely impractical for every day…although I do keep mine for about 3 days. Â And I do wash the dishes, my body etc. but it is a pain staking process to keep the foils from rubbing off and that is with a clear nail polish over the mani. Â But Definitely worth the look for specialÂ occasions. Â I hadÂ Â given myself the manicure for New Years.
The iridescent designsÂ are my favorites butÂ allegedlyÂ the hardest to maintain..but shoot a girl likes the glitz and a change up sooooo….once again I will be out with a new manicure…twice a week. So many nail designs soo little fingers..
You get alot of bang for your buck
