Hi there,
please can someone tell me some advise on minx please, when re applying minx do you file the nail bed everytime before applying the minx. ive got a regular customer who has minx on everytime and i soak old minx off and re apply after preping however not sure if i should file everytime in this situation, not sure if it will damage the nail by doing this.
should it be only done when aplying the minx for the FIRST time.
please help as im getting busy and not sure if im doing it right x :D

Can I ask have you done any Minx training?
The reason I ask is there are a few things you are doing which you shouldn't be doing during a Minx application or Minx Removal.

You don't buff the surface of the nail before applying Minx and just as important you certainly do not soak off Minx.

Minx is applied with Heat and should be removed using heat.

I would suggest you book onto a Minx course so you get the most from your product and give the best service that you can.

Agree with Klassy Klaws - on the Minx training you don't file nail bed nor do Minx need soaking off.

Minx seem like a simple thing to apply, which they are, but the training is helpful and isn't expensive and teaches you some great tips and tricks - esp how to get the most sets out of one Minx sheet - i'm still trying to master that one!!

Hope this helps x

sorry for jumping on the thread but where can you get minx training, and do they do a shellac and minx one together? also, do you need the lamp to train? thanks

Yes Sweet Squared will have all the answers. At the moment their Shellac & Minx training courses are seperate and to do each one you have to have the proper Minx or Shellac lamp and products. All of this is also available from them and they do some great starter kits with everything you need for Minx. X

My Minx training with CND cost no where near that price ( or did that price include kit too ) . In my training we where told not to remove the surface shine as it isn't necessary .

Ok Minx training wouldn't of cost you £250 that amount must be including your lamp and equipment as Minx training only costs £50.
There is no need to remove the shine from the surface of the nail, you remove Cuticle then Scrubfresh to remove any surface contaminates before applying the Minx.

Then removal is heating the Minx with Your lamp and peeling from side wall to side wall.

If your feel you need a bit more information please contact your CND Education Ambassador who provided your training, I'm sure they will be happy to run over things for you.
