Minx Gets Spooky at the Voodoo Music Festival in New Orleans
This year our friends at Minx took nail fashion to a spooky level and celebrated halloween in New Orleans at the Voodoo Music Festival – a 3-day Music & Arts festival featuring over 100 music acts from around the world.
Headliners at the event included Soundgarden, Blink 182, Snoop Dogg, Fatboy Slim and Girltalk.
Nails on Stage
Minx set up in the Artist compound backstage and offered to put special designs on the bands and artists to match their costumes and stage wear. Fun and festive, Minx was the perfect compliment to the array of amazing costumes and makeup worn by performers. Their ease of application and lack of drying time made them instantly popular with both boys and girls.
Once word got out, the Minx tent became a hot-spot for those whose fingers were taking center stage – on the guitar or the microphone.
New Orleans-based Minxers Chelette Smith and Amber Muse joined Minx co-founder Janice Jordan at the event to bring their unique nail fashion to any interested musician on the scene.
Janice summed up the experience by saying “Our favorite quote of the day came from one of the members of the Japanese cult fave band Peelander Zee. When we asked her what instrument she played she said, ‘I don’t really play an instrument… I’m mostly just screaming!’”
All That Noise
Another highlight was the improvised 30 member marching band, the Noisician Coalition, that marches around with self-made instruments making sounds you really have to hear to believe.
Minx used pro patterns ranging from currently available designs to special Halloween Minx to a few delightful custom coatings that were brewed up specially for the event.
