Paris Fashion Week has come and go! Fashion week isn’t just about clothes. Everything from accessories, hair styles, make-up, and even nails can really make a statement during these shows. Minx of course was found all around Paris and at some of these amazing fashion shows!
Gorgeous Ice Queen/Crystal Cave theme for the Alexander McQueen Autumn/Winter 2011 Show. Minx co-founders Janice Jordan and Dawn Lynch-Goodwin and U.K. nail stylist Marian Newman came up with the black fading to silver with white crystals as to go with the theme of an Ice Queen looking out of a cave. In the silver faded area, you can see the white crystals the imitate the ice you would see in a wintery cave. Janice and Dawn, along with a team, applied the Icy nail fashion to 35 models for the Alexander McQueen fashion show. Photos courtesy of Becky Maynes.
These fabulous gold nails weren’t just an accent to Vivienne Westwood’s Gold Collection which debuted March 4th in Paris. U.K. nail stylist Sophy Robson came up with the idea of using gold Minx with a brushed metal top. Once again the Minx co-founders were called on to bring find the perfect mirrored-look nail fashion to go with the collection. Minx, Sophy decided, would be the best way to create the mirrored effect instead of nail polish.
Love the Minx used in the Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood fashion shows! Don’t you?
xo, June 🙂
Introducing the first capsule collection by Ela Kowalewska. The idea behind the collection is “humble luxury where refined and sophisticated silhouettes strive to showcase, rather than upstage the wearer.” The collection consists of a predominantly neutral palette that is complemented by bright hues of smaller items of the collections.

You can expect them to last 4 – 8 days on the fingers and up to 4 weeks on toes, dependant on the nature of your nail. We always want a great service and if you have trouble with lifting just apply some heat from your hairdryer and some pressure to reseal. Make sure your given a dry manicure first before application as this is very important.

Today marks the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day. So ladies, stand up and be proud! Today to commemorate the anniversary of International Women’s Day the Assaulted Women’s Helpline launched their campaign called “Who Would You Call?” . This campaign is to simply celebrate and pay tribute to the important friends and family in your life that we can call no matter what time of day it is. There are about 49,000+ women living in Ontario that aren’t so fortunate and have the helpline to listen 24/7. With this, the Assaulted Women’s Helpline is inviting people to write a story (or letter, or blog post, or poem or film a video or whatever else you can think of) to honor your amazing friend (s).
Today is the launch of the website and the campaign will continue until April 15th.
The Assaulted Women’s Helpline is a toll free crisis line service for all women in Ontario. We provide crisis counselling, emotional support, information and referrals 24 hours a day and seven days a week. The main goal is to get people talking and thinking – by celebrating your uber-fantastic friends and recognizing that we’re pretty lucky to have friends like that to celebrate – not everyone is in the same boat and that’s why the Helpline exists.
