They’ve done it again, collaborated with an amazing artist to create their latest fab collection.
Minx co-founders Dawn Lynch-Goodwin & Janice Jordan recently announced the launch of the “Minx Professional for Leah Light” collection designed by New Zealand’s premier nail stylist, Leah Light.
“We were so pleased to collaborate with Leah and bring her visions to life in this new Minx collection,” said Dawn.
Leah receives worldwide attention via her regular features on CoCo Perez & works with countless national & international stars. The Minx co-founders flew to New Zealand to meet Leah in 2011 & offered her the opportunity to design her own collection.
“My philosophy is to give each of my clients something unique & by making each of my designs in the ‘Barely There’ style with a transparent background, every person who wears my design has creative control over the final look they achieve,” Leah explained. “By custom blending the base colors, no two clients need ever have the same look from any of my Minx designs.”
The theme for the eight designs in the Leah Light collection is ‘Simply Chrome’ with each design utilizing a pure metallic Silver or Gold Minx finish. All designs appear on a transparent background, enabling them to be worn layered so the design appears on top of the background color. The Minx coatings can also be worn alone, with no base, for a more subtle look.
Zowie – Gold & Silver
“This design was inspired by my amazing client, Zoe Flurey, a New Zealand pop artist who has toured with stars like Katy Perry & Nicki Minaj,” explained Leah. “From the first time Zowie & I got together we were dreaming up crazy fun nails & a circuit board was one of our first & best ideas. We both love Minx, so when I had the offer to create my own collection, I went straight to Zowie to perfect this design!”
Hannah’s Koru – Gold & Silver
Leah revealed that she had an very significant person help her create this design – her daughter, Hannah. “I sat down with my family one night to review design ideas & the one that really grabbed me was based on a drawing that Hannah had done of the New Zealand Koru,” said Leah. The New Zealand Native Koru is a spiral design based on the shape of a new unfurling silver fern frond & it symbolizes new life/beginnings, growth, strength, peace & abundance. “It seemed like the perfect addition to my line as it allows me to share part of my New Zealand heritage with the rest of the world, as well as the creative beauty that is my daughter!”
SuperStar – Gold & Silver
This design was inspired by one of Leah’s clients, New Zealand host & actress Kimberley Crossman, who has also been enjoying success in Los Angeles as her international career takes off. “Both Kimberley & I are very driven individuals & our goals are set sky-high in the stars,” Leah said. “Also, on a very personal note,” revealed Leah, “I have always told my children that every time they see a star, just imagine it’s a sign from me, telling them that I love them.” Leah added, “Up until now it’s been our little secret, but they gave me permission to tell you!”
CheckMe Out – Silver
“This 3D design shares my love of nails with a difference,” laughed Leah. “I have always loved simple yet striking 3D embellishments & this chrome layering captures the look perfectly!”
Labyrinth – Gold
This design was initially inspired by one of Leah’s all-time favorite childhood movies, “The Labyrinth.” But, as Leah explained, “On a deeper level, the labyrinth design also symbolizes spiritual growth, progress, rebirth & evolution – all of the things I feel are part of the pathways & journeys in my life & career.”
The Minx Professional for Leah Light collection can be purchased online by nail professionals anywhere in the world through the Minx Web site.
