These are the results (who’d have thought I’d ever be posting pics of my feet on the internet!):
They’re not perfect, but for a first attempt I don’t think they’re too bad! Minx recommend you do between 10-15 sets before you’re considered practiced enough to know what you’re doing. The proof of the pudding will be in the eating I suppose – Minx is a plastic nail covering applied with heat that can last between 2-6 weeks on toes, however if they’re not applied right, it will be much less! I’ll report back on their longevity and ease of removal after the hol.
I hate my feet and if I’m honest, I’m pretty neglectful of them. In order to get my feet in shape a bit more for summer I used a Ped Egg, Sanctuary Instant Foot Callus Treatment (which is pretty good actually, but I think my feet were a bit far gone for it on its own!), Palmers Cocoa Butter Oil and some cuticle oil, nail file and orange stick for my nails.
I’ve got my eyes on some other Minx designs now:

There are so many more though - these are just a small selection of my faves! You can get Minx manicures and pedicures in salons for not much more than a normal mani/pedi - have you seen any Minx designs you love?
I haven't scheduled any posts for when I'm away - basically, because I like hearing what everyone has to say! :-) But I'm planning on doing a bit of shopping in Florida so I'm sure I'll pick up a few things when I'm there that I might end up reviewing (hello CVS, Sephora and Mac!). I’ve been quite restrained this year and not gone for lash extensions, loads of waxing etc, though I did get my hair and brows done today. I also have a 15kg case limit which I feel is kind of cruel.
