Traveling the world for nails, fashion and beauty.

Most of us have been there – perfect outfit, accessories, and perfume, but the same old nails. 
So what's a girl to do?  
You've already tried every color nail polish at the salon, so now what? Well, there are two lovely ladies who planned for days just like these – Minx nails.
The ultra-busy and very hands-on creators of Minx, Dawn Lynch-Goodwin and Janice Jordan spent a lot of time traveling around the world, working with the elite in nail, fashion and beauty. Whether personally creating custom Minx for celebrities including Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Kim Kardashian or collaborating with nail stylists and design houses such as Alexander McQueen, Gareth Pugh or Thierry Mugler to create couture Minx for shows, Dawn and Janice are the tireless powerhouse forces behind the patented nail coating that has inspired and excited beauty enthusiasts and elevated the role of nail fashion around the world –they even created Minx for a then-little known artist – Lady Gaga.  Now you can have more nail options than ever before;
  • Minx allows you to be playful.
  • Minx has different looks and personalities for different occasions.
  • Minx has become the luxury nail fashion of choice in over 40 countries.
  • Minx extends fashion to your fingertips (and toe tips!) everywhere.

Earlier this year Scratch Magazine – The leading publication and online community for nail professionals – featured Minx nails on the cover of the March 2012 issue where you'll see lip tattoos matched with Minx.  A West Hollywood nail stylist and photographer "thought sexy lip and nail art would make a fantastic combination. 

Here you see a transparent black lace Minx nail layered design paired with dramatic lips that resulted in a very provocative cover image for Scratch.
Here's what the two ultra-busy creators of Minx say about Minx… 

"Some say it’s like a temporary tattoo for the nails, we say it’s a fashion accessory but really it’s as mysterious, stylish or devilish as you want it to be…" –Dawn Lynch-Goodwin, Chief Cheeky Minx

"Minx is for a person who loves life and enjoys standing out from the crowd. We say that ‘Minx extends fashion to your fingertips,’ and in just a few years we’ve seen Minx become a fashion necessity." –Janice Jordan, Master Minx

Dawn and Janice hoped Minx would revolutionize the world of nails, and it has.  So next time you find yourself in a pinch and wanting to extend your fashion to your fingertips – make your nail appointment at Troy Richard Salon by calling (214) 618-8071 or ask questions by sending email to

Love your look.
