One Night Stand

Thumb Press

If all you’re looking for is one night of fun with a funky design, look no further! Use the heat from your own thumb to get the wraps to a malleable form, then apply to the nails - rounded end toward the cuticles. Rub the Minx starting at the center working your way to the edges, apply heat with your thumb throughout the process to ensure your design lasts as long as you do.

External Heat

Love the design you chose but you’re a bit of a commitment-phobe? Use an external heat source like the Minx Heat or blow dryer for the perfect nails that last at least the week, with no signs of wear and tear.

Direct heat on the Minx until it becomes malleable, apply to the nails - rounded end toward the cuticles. Rub the Minx starting at the center and working your way to the edges, apply heat source throughout the process.
