Minx, Inc Unveils Signature Collection Designed by New Zealand Celebrity
Nail Stylist Leah Light
Minx, Inc co-founders Dawn Lynch-Goodwin and Janice Jordan are delighted to announce the launch of the “Minx Professional for Leah Light” collection designed by New Zealand’s premier nail stylist, Leah Light.
The theme for the eight designs in the Minx Professional by Leah Light collection is ‘Simply Chrome’ with each design utilizing the pure metallic Silver or Gold Minx finish. Each design appears on a transparent background, enabling it to be worn layered over a gel polish, nail polish, or Minx base color so that the design appears on top of the background color. The Minx coatings can also be worn alone, with no base, for a more subtle look. Descriptions of the designs are as follows:
Zowie: Golden Lightning Circuit Board and Silver Lightning Circuit Board
“This design was inspired by my amazing client, Zoe Flurey, a New Zealand pop artist who has toured with stars like Katy Perry & Nicki Minaj,” explained Leah. “From the first time Zowie and I got together we were dreaming up crazy fun nails, and a circuit board was one of our first and best ideas. We both love Minx, so when I had the offer to create my own collection, I went straight to Zowie to perfect this design!”
Hannah’s Koru: Golden Lightning and Silver Lightning
Leah revealed that she had an very significant person help her create this design – her daughter, Hannah. “I sat down with my family one night to review design ideas and the one that really grabbed me was based on a drawing that Hannah had done of the New Zealand Koru,” said Leah. The New Zealand Native Koru is a spiral design based on the shape of a new unfurling silver fern frond, and it symbolizes new life/beginnings, growth, strength, peace and abundance. “It seemed like the perfect addition to my line as it allows me to share part of my New Zealand heritage with the rest of the world, as well as the creative beauty that is my daughter!” said Leah.
SuperStar: Golden Lightning Starburst and Silver Lightning Starburst
This design was inspired by one of Leah’s clients, New Zealand host and actress Kimberley Crossman, who has also been enjoying success in Los Angeles as her international career takes off. “Both Kimberley and I are very driven individuals, and our goals are set sky-high in the stars,” Leah said.
“Also, on a very personal note,” revealed Leah, “I have always told my children that every time they see a star, just imagine it’s a sign from me, telling them that I love them.” Leah added, “Up until now it’s been our little secret, but they gave me permission to tell you!”

“This 3D design shares my love of nails with a difference,” laughed Leah. “I have always loved simple yet striking 3D embellishments, and this chrome layering captures the look perfectly!”
Labyrinth: Golden Lightning
This design was initially inspired by one of Leah’s all-time favorite childhood movies, “The Labyrinth.” But, as Leah explained, “On a deeper level, the labyrinth design also symbolizes spiritual growth, progress, rebirth and evolution – all of the things I feel are part of the pathways and journeys in my life and career.”
