NixOS emulation on Mac mini M1?

Wanted to find more info on this topic, saw Support for Apple Silicon (aarch64-darwin) · Issue #95903 · NixOS/nixpkgs · GitHub, got disheartened, but then I realized that if I just want to run NixOS on a Mac mini M1 via x86 emulation, then I’m fine - right?

Found a couple articles (see below) but would love to hear your real-life experiences. Thanks!
