Minx Does the Mert Otsamo Fall/Winter 2011 Show
Once again, Minx stays up with the latest in the fashion world by covering the nails of all involved. Today we have some amazing behind the scenes images from the Mert Otsamo Fall/Winter 2011 show on May 25, 2011 at the Gallery Kalhama and Piippo in Helsinki.
These amazing nail styles were courtesy of Minx Maestro, Mirka Poikkeus who has worked with Mert Otsamo on more than one occasion. She was approached by the designer earlier in the year specifically requesting custom Minx nail fashions for his show.
“Mert and I always collaborate well together as he is a very hands-on designer who pays attention to details.” stated Mirka.
Mirka and her team, Sami Haapa and Jarna Kaipila, Minxed 20 models for the show. Including 3 male models who wore a matte gray base with gradient black Minx overlay.
“We discussed the look that he wanted his models to display on their nails, and decided to use the golden, silver and MinxLusion metallics layered with color for a shimmering, multi-dimensional look.” explained Mirka.
The Favourite Look
Mirka’s favorite look of the show was a gorgeously rendered set of MinxLusion nails embellished with crystals and delicate feathers from the final ensemble of the collection
