Minx Nails on the Runway
Minx nails are all the fashion right now, and all over the globe.

The beauty of the outside world inspired the collection, named “Flora,” and the nails in the show aptly turn his models’ hands into graceful insect wings. Minx gave each nail a black-half moon at the base and a silver iridescent Minxlusion coating, which reflected the many colors in the vibrant outfits.
Finnish designer Mert Otsamo also chose custom 3D Minx nails for his “Army of Generation” fashion show in Helsinki, which was designed to reflect the imagination of this generation’s creative people. The nails featured a “3D Minx coating with raised ridges and a seashell-inspired design” with metallic layering and a unique texture. After the show, head nail stylist Mirka Poikkeus, revealed, “As usual, the models loved their nails and wanted to keep them on as long as they could!”
