Minx Nails are a heat activated product that is applied after the nail is prepped and shrink wraps to fit the nail. It is applied with a heat lamp, after it is cut to fit the nail. Trendy Nails Unlimited are also a heat activated product, but the difference is that they can be applied with either a heat lamp or a hair dryers, this helps remove expensive start up costs as most salons already have a hair dryer. They also are designed to work in conjunction with an acrylic or gel overlay. This means that its harder for the design to come off, get caught on anything or peel off, they also last longer. This brings us to our next point:
Minx nails claim to last 2 weeks for fingers and 4 weeks for toes. But there are many reports of applications lasting only a few days. Trendy Nails Unlimited fingers last for 4-6 weeks thanks to the acrylic or gel overlay with toes lasting around 4 weeks.
