Beyoncé’s Minx Nails at the Superbowl

No one on the planet can deny that Beyoncè’s halftime performance at the Superbowl was super hot.  Beyoncè looked fierce and New York celebrity nail stylist Lisa Logan can attest that reaching that level of perfection takes a ton of preparation!

On Saturday, January 26 at 5:00 pm in the evening, celebrity nail stylist and salon owner Lisa Logan received a phone call asking her to jump on the first available flight to New Orleans to create the nail styles for Beyoncé  and her backup dancers that would be performing at the Superbowl halftime extravaganza.

Why the urgency a week before the event?  The next morning, Beyoncé’s team would be filming highly specialized holographic effects for the top-secret halftime spectacle, and all the backup dancers and Beyoncé needed to have their nails styled with Minx, the solid nail coating that results in high impact nail fashion.

“As soon as I arrived at the hotel, I began working on creating super long nail tips covered with the Gold and Matte Gold Chevron Minx that would be worn by the backup dancers,” explained Lisa.  “The process was very time consuming because the nails were going to be used in the holographic segment where it looks like Beyoncé has multiple arms, so all the dancers had to be wearing the same design.  And, because the nails were so long, I needed to use two Minx templates to cover each tip.”

Lisa completed applying Minx to the tips around 4:00 am, and was back at the hotel just 3 hours later, ready to apply the finished Minx to the ten backup dancers who were arriving to begin filming.  By noon on January 27, Beyoncé had also arrived and Lisa applied the same Matte Gold Chevron Minx to her nails as well.

Beyoncé, who last month posted a custom Minx design inspired by New York artist Jean-Michel Basquiat on Instagram,  often wears custom Minx colors and designs, with the Minx metallics a particular favorite due to the high impact it delivers on stage and on the red carpet.

Since Minx is the only patented heat-activated solid nail coating, Lisa explains that the nail coating literally conforms to the actual shape of the nail, and can last up to two weeks on the fingers and six weeks on the toes.  You can wear them over natural nails or tips. If you want to experience Minx, or purchase your own DIY Minx nails, visit the, or can have a set professionally applied at a Minx-certified salon found through the Minx salon finder.
