One of the most famous boy bands in Asia, Big Bang, has finally met Minx nails!
In the July 2011 issue of Dazed & Confused Korea, the 5 members of Big Bang demonstrated their extreme make-over style with matching Silver Lightning Minx manicures applied by top Minx nail stylist in Korea, Jinny Kim, of the Nail-Ae Salon in Seoul, Korea.
When Jinny first heard she would be providing nail fashion for the band, she was so excited. “I couldn’t believe I would be meeting the most beloved boy band in Asia,” Jinny confided. “I wanted to be prepared, so I selected the most stylish nail fashion that would match their Chrome Hearts jewelry.”
The shoot took place in an old warehouse in Seoul and Jinny quickly got to work with the stylists and decided to apply Silver Lightning Minx to the band members. “It was the first time they had worn Minx, and as soon as it was applied, they loved it and commented on how great it looked with their jewelry,” enthused Jinny. The application was easy and because Minx is a solid nail coating, there were no fumes or drying time required – perfect for a hectic photo shoot that lasted from noon to midnight.
The Dazed & Confused magazine was published with 5 front covers – one featuring each member of Big Bang – and inside each magazine is a special 4 page shoot with individual member’s photos. This special edition was sold out in only four hours in Japan, and in Korea fans were standing in line around the country to get a copy the morning the July issue became available.
Jinny admits that she has copies of all five issues. “I love every photo. There were so many great photos including the photo of T.O.P showing Minx reflected against the floor, and the photo of G-Dragon showing the great match between Minx and his Chrome Heart jewelry,” said Jinny.
The photo shoot was conducted by Kim Jung Man, Korea’s top celebrity photographer who is respected worldwide for his artistry and integrity.

Big Bang’s popularity is not limited to Asia – earlier this month, Big Bang fans in the U.K. organized a flash mob event in the hopes of convincing the group’s record label, YG Entertainment, to bring the band to London for a concert.
