Now I am going to talk about full coverage nail sitckers. There are several out there on the market but I have to tell you my favorite ones are Minx because I love the thinness of the application, because it actually takes on the shape of your natural nail. For the most part, you have to have them done professionally but there is a limited edition that is in Sephora that you can purchase, and they also have an option where you can customize them to whatever you want to put on the sticker.
I recommend that you have them done professionally because Minx technicians are trained to apply it to your nail properly and as they're applying it to your nail, they're walking you through the process so that you know how to remove it properly and it looks like a regular manicure just full of designs, and it will last between four to eight days. So I would say it is a good investment because it is a pricey manicure so why not have it done professionally so that it looks awesome on your nails.
In the stores, you'll find nail stickers that do not require heat. Minx applications require heat because it's a heated film that is very thin and goes over the entire nail bed. As it cools, it takes on the shape of your nail and then you remove the excess. The ones that you can find in the store as an alternative are just slightly thicker and they have the consistency of a nail sticker. You apply them the same way, minus the heat, but make sure that you get them as close to the skin as possible and as close to the cuticle area. This way, it looks like a natural manicure, just full of designs, and always cut away the free edge as much as possible, so that the only thing that's left is your nail bed with a really funky design.
