Art Club: Glam Nails

So I've been trying to see if I can get my hands on some Minx nail products but I believe you can only get them done by a certified professional....? :S  So I recently went to my local Sally store and found these knock-off nail stickers and decided to try them out! I would say that they are quite different from Minx nails because they ARE just stickers and the Minx nails, you actually have to rub them on and then heat them in order for them to adhere to your nail. Anywhoo, nonetheless, I bought a set to try out and give you all my personal review/impression on this new product.

Here are a few pics of how it looks like in the packaging and on the nails.


  • Inexpensive (approx $6 CDN)
  • Easy to remove
  • Lots of nail stickers, can use one package twice depending on how long or short your nails are
  • Updated trendy designs

  • They smell bad/chemical-ish
  • Not many designs to choose from
  • Hard to put on/cutting the nail stickers to your nail size
  • Thick in size, meaning shorter lasting power
  • Edges start to peel/chip after 1 1/2 days (even with a top coat)
  • Can rip easily if not handled with care when applying on the nail
  • Top layer of the sticker peels away easily, sometimes taking half the design away with it
All in all, I'd give this product a 5 out of 10. It looks great when you first put them on but once you start doing your day to day activities, they really start to give way. The quality is not great for a product that you think should last you at least a week. It's definitely a product you can try since it's soo cheap and fun to wear, but if you are looking for something to last you a few days, I think I'd stick to some good quality polish!!

Just a pic of what the Minx Nails look like. They are definitely something I would like to try. Supposedly, it's to last you 2 weeks on the nails, give or take!
