Minx co-founders Janice Jordan and Dawn Lynch-Goodwin were delighted to be part of the Gareth Pugh Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection which was shown in Paris on March 2, 2011. Leading U.K. nail stylist Marian Newman was initially contacted by the Gareth Pugh stylist, Katie Shillingford, who provided Marian with a swatch sample of the very specific waxy blue color she wanted for the show. Marian, in turn, contacted Janice and Dawn to request the custom color. “I was only able to provide Janice and Dawn with a copy of the swatch, but that was enough for them to create Minx in that exact shade,” explained Marian. “From that point, Janice, Dawn and I collaborated to develop three different nail designs revolving around the blue and gold colors central to the collection.”

A few days before the show, the designer made the decision to use the gold-framed waxy blue Minx which showed a flash of gold under the nail (pictured, above) , giving Marian and her team plenty of time to prepare. The complete nail featured gold underneath the nail, and a perfect gold frame on three sides, giving every model immaculate, matching nails complete with Marian’s “Parisian” shape.

LOVVVEEEEE the Gold Framing around the Blue Nail Concept !!!! The futuristic eye appliqué is beyond this world!!

The day of the show, both Janice and Dawn joined Marian and her team of David Barton, Helen Lisle-Taylor, Lucy Galsworthy, and Kimberley Casey backstage to assist in nail preparation.
