hairstylist. Beyoncé has worn Minx many, many times. Why do you think she wears it so often?

What does Beyoncé look for when choosing her Minx styles?
Lisa: When we are doing a shoot for a magazine, the Minx style usually has to work with whatever she is going to wear, so she often ends up with either the Golden Lightning or Silver Lightning. But, when it is for her everyday wear she is very daring, and she picks whatever pattern or design catches her eye.
Does Beyoncé ever match an outfit to Minx, or request customized Minx for a particular outfit?
Lisa: Yes, she has a few customized Minx styles. I have created customized Obama styles for her, a “Mrs. Carter” graphic, and Jay-Z Minx for her, along with a couple of other patterns we wanted for videos.
As a celebrity manicurist, why do you like working with Minx?
Lisa: Well for me it's very fun, and I love to use Minx. I love the reaction I get after Minxing someone for the first time!
Has Beyoncé started a nail trend among other celebrities?
Lisa: She certainly has! Beyoncé is a total trend setter. She was that boost that Minx needed. She loves Minx, and as a result, all her fans all over the world are loving Minx too!
