Barely There Minx

Good evening fellow Minxes. Here I am with installment 2 of our new Minx Nails designs. Yes, I am ready to make you gasp with delight; stomp your feet in anger that they are not adorning your fingers right now and quiver with anticipation that a salon near you can kit you out with this seasons must have Minx Nails.

So…..behold!

Gold Lace Minx Nails

Silver Lace Minx Nails

Ah! Lace, some find it a definite No with an explanation mark!, others have grown to understand it from teachings of trend setters, and others have always worn it and appreciated the workmanship and delicate touches it brings to an outfit. It is for sure a trend of Summer 2011. I have seen it little but when I have, I notice – I appreciate – I love!

The designs here are set with a transparent background so all you see is the delicate golden/silver lace lining.

The fabulous Jane Fonda aka Barbarella wore this beautiful Fall 2011 gown creation by Marchesa for closing Naomi Campbell’s charity benefit ‘Fashion for Relief’. I could imagine the Silver Lace Minx Nails design would have complimented this beautifully.

There is a chance to get involved with this charity aiding those affected by Hurricane Katrina through a live auction held at the end of September. A fantastic opportunity to help others and make yourself look/feel fab at the same time.

Now, I must be honest….sitting in a public place and squealing out loud at your lap top is not advisable! But how could you not. This truly exquisite vintage Valentino gown would play beautifully with Silver Lace Minx Nails.

I *siiigh* love the scalloped layers and the definite waist tie that becomes as bigger feature than the dress itself! As found on http://thefrock.com/ my new favorite website!

And present Valentino haute couture as seen on the Fall 2011 catwalk worn by model of the moment Freja Beha Erichsen.

Imagine the delicate touch of Gold Lace Minx Nails….swoon!

Gold Stripes Minx Nails

Silver Stripes Minx Nails

These stripes sit against your natural nail color giving a sheer elegant look, while giving a bold statement combined.

Prada led the way with their Spring/Summer 2011 campaign of bright bold stripes shot by Steven Meisel.

A little shy for being that adventurous with color just now? Blend a little of these shades into your get up whilst incorporating a flash of stripes on your finger digits to stay locked in on this summer’s striped trend.

Gold Leaves Minx Nails

Silver Leaves Minx Nails

Finally. My firm favorite. These have been present for a while now In Minx Nails HQ, wafting around on the nails of Dawn – Chief Cheeky Minx. They have literally been an exclusive design only to be seen on her manicured talons. And now – they can be yours…and mine!!*squeal*

Again, like the others in this collection, sit against a transparent background so there is the note of natural nail.

Inspiration?

What an incredible image. The ad campaign for Alexander McQueen Spring /Summer 2011.

The use of the butterflies in the back drop, depict a celebration of warm glowing seasonal colors. I also feel the clear symbol of metamorphosis, new beginnings and the freedom of lost souls….all great in importance after the loss of one of the pinnacle designers of our time and the beautiful rise of Sarah Burton-creative director for Alexander McQueen to this day.

Top nail stylist Marian Newman and her team applied Custom Minx Nails to the models including Lindsey Wixon (above) for the Spring/Summer 2011 collection in Paris created by the creators of Minx Nails, Dawn Lynch-Goodwin and Janice Jordan using fabric from the show, as they had for Alexander McQueen’s final show ‘Platos Atlantis’.
