Minx Nails @ Fred Butler’s Spring/ Summer 2012 Collection
We love it that Minx is interested in fashion of all kinds. Although amazing nails could be considered an accessory themselves, Minx teamed up with Fred Butler to compliment her Spring/ Summer Accessory Collection for 2012 early in September.
The Minx nail fashion for the show was created by UK nail stylist Marian Newman and applied by Kay Dodd. Marian also worked with Fred Butler’s team to create nail fashion for a film that was screened at the show.
“I was first approached by Fred’s stylist, Kim Howells, who sent me a photo of MinxLusion and asked me if I could create that look for the presentation,” said Marian. “I thought it was quite funny, because Fred first wore MinxLusion years ago at a photo shoot with me, and I took one look at her nails and said ‘My God, what are those?’” laughed Marian. “She told me it was an exclusive nail fashion from New York, and the rest is history.”
Marian and Kim decided to use MinxLusion for the show, but they also wanted to add something extra to complement the unusual, whimsical muses featured in the collection – little underwater sea creatures.
“Kim sent me photos of the sea creatures, and I collaborated with Minx co-founder Janice Jordan who translated them into nail coatings,” explained Marian.
“I then experimented with the MinxLusion coating to add little fins and gills, bringing the nail fashion to life and creating a completely different look for each of the four models at the presentation.” Said Marian.
The film that was showcased along with the collection also features Minx custom nails by Marian and will be posted on Fred Butler’s website www.fredbutlerstyle.com. The nails featured in the film carry the same themes of the collection, sea creatures with gills on the edge of the nail.
Marian revealed that Kim texted her after shooting the film to say “The nails for Fred looked great on the shoot – wow, everybody died!”
