Description of Designs in the “Minx Professional by Lisa Logan 2” Collection

I Heart You: I initially created this design after working with Suri Cruise, whose mom Katie told me that
Suri’s favorite colors were pink and purple. I used these two colors to make a recurring heart design
especially for her, but I didn’t have a chance to show it to Suri. When I was deciding on designs for my
collection, I liked this one so much that I didn’t want it to go to waste, and I just switched around the
colors to make it more reflective of my style.

Jigsaw: I wanted to put together fun pieces that were clear as well as colorful to make an abstract
design that resembles a jigsaw puzzle. The clear pieces represent pieces that are missing, and I like to
think that I’m like a puzzle… you can try to figure me out, but there are always going to be some pieces
that you don’t know about. You can never totally know someone – there will always be some surprises!

Life Line Yellow: Initially I played with a lot of options with a colored moon, reverse moon, and other
ideas but when I narrowed them down I liked the line down the middle. This design is starting to be
popular with my clients, and to me it represents life, running right down the center of your being. I
chose the color combination of yellow and silver because this collection is coming out in summer, and
it’s a wonderful, bright combination.

Scribble Me Black and White: The Scribble Me design was a way for me to add my signature to my line
without including an actual logo. The handwriting is my own handwriting, and it includes my name, and
phrases like “I heart you.” I thought I would keep this in black and white as a lot of my clients want to
have fun with their nails but in a subtle way.

Scribble Me Graffiti: This is the Scribble Me design but in the color version. I love the graffiti look and
I chose a color combination that would really pop, to give a really fun version of this design.

Mumba: Tribal has become very popular in nail art and I wanted to create a tribal pattern that was
very bold. When I looked at it, I wanted to feel like I could hear the drums beating and like I wanted
to dance. My grandmother was Indian and my grandfather was from Guyana in South America, so this
tribal design also celebrates my heritage.

Tribal: Although my grandmother was Indian and my grandfather from Guyana, I myself am not very
knowledgeable about my background so this tribal design is the muted, monochromatic version that
represents myself. I have the colorful heritage, but I didn’t grow up in the culture so was influenced
only a little, as this pale design demonstrates.

Mood Swing: This design is an optical illusion and I love it! The optical illusion again represents how
people may try to figure me out, but they really don’t know me. I carry out a lot of different roles in my
life, and have many sides to my personality so what you see may not be the same thing you see a day
later! This pattern also shows the fun in trying to decipher hidden messages or riddles.

@MoleculeProject vs @zerowaterfilter

I just heard on the news that there is a new water cafe that opened in East Village called Molecule. I am excited to be the first to list it on Yelp 🙂

The water there is filtered through a state of the art filtration system and cost $2.50 for one glass bottle.

I can’t wait to try it and see how it compares to my Zero Water Filter!


Say Something with @LFTMCollective

T-shirts are a great staple. You can dress them up with heels or under a blazer, dress them down or look cute and work out in them. These unique T-shirts from Lifetime Collective will help any outfit and starting at $40.

I am a huge fan of T’s that look good with everything!  I am crazy about this quote on this shirt from Lifetime Collective.

So much cute stuff for summer at
