Minx Nails Dupe?

So you all probably know about the Minx-style nails hype, and drugstore brands like Sally Hansen have been creating products duplicating that style. Awhile back, CVS had their famous sale, and I grabbed myself a box of these Salon Nail Foils. It was only $2.49. so I thought it was worth a shot to try them.

What I liked about this product was that it came with all the necessary tools needed - nail foils, scissors, nail file, and a cuticle pusher. So far so good... but then when I put them on my nails, they looked horrible! The foils are way too large for my nail beds, and even when I trim them down, there would be awkward folds on the edges.

See? It just looked like I got regular stickers and applied them onto my nails lol. NO thanks! I peeled them off after applying to only one hand and I just painted my nails. I still can't figure out if this is just a bad product, or maybe it is because my nail beds are oddly shaped? If you've tried these before, let me know how they turned out on you!
