For the second season in a row Fred Butler has teamed up with Minx and Marian Newman and used crazy Minx designs for her models. Trust me, scroll down for the pics because they are seriously cool and quirky! *LOVE*
The Minx at Fred Butler London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012 collection were inspired by sea creatures and this season when Fred Butler stylist Kim Howells briefed in the theme for the nail inspiration to Marian Newman it was just as kooky…
The concept behind this collection was based on 70’s James Bond Babes hitting the sexy ski slopes for snow action, and then relaxing afterward to eat playful sushi.
“The sushi theme completely hooked me and I began devising nails that would incorporate 3D effects with the realistic graphics Minx can deliver.”
Marian contacted Minx co-founder Janice Jordan and provided her with samples of graphics to be incorporated into Minx templates.
Once the Minx was delivered, Marian began preparing the nails on 14 tips.
“I wanted to create the look and feel of real sushi, so I placed shapes made from clay under the sushi graphics to add dimension, and also added embellishments such as red caviar and Minx cut-outs on top”
Hollie Wakeham, a nail stylist from Colchester, Essex who was the winner of a Minx contest that transported her to the middle of London Fashion Week applied Marian’s custom 3D Minx nails to models who were not wearing mitten accessories.
