so! i went and got my first set of Minx nails done on friday at Heartbreaker Salon. um, i really, really love them. the fact that Heartbreaker is just around the corner makes me slightly worried for how often i may go back to indulge.
it takes about an hour to apply all ten—if you’re not familiar with Minx they’re individual stickers that are set with heat. i’m still not fully into how rough the edges feel, but i fear messing up the pattern if i file them. i’m also using gloves any time my hands are near water.
(also! bonus! i wasn’t really interested in football until christmas—watching the whole first season of Friday Night Lights while visiting your parents in Texas will do that to you!—but i’m very overjoyed that my Minx choice is inadvertently the colours of the Saints, thus making my superficial love of the game even more hilarious for tonight’s Super Bowl party.)
