Winter Nail Inspiration

EN:

I've already told you about my first experience at Lore's. Remember?

These days the salon is decorated in gold, silver and white. Ribbons are gently hanging down the grand chandelier and stylish wrapped gifts are to be found in every corner of every fairytale room. But I'll tell you more about this next time.

Today I want to show you my latest manicure designs in tone with the season.

I know how good it is to be inspired when you sit in front of the curious manicurist. Believe me, I really know. - So let me help you.

RO:

Ti-am mai povestit de prima mea experienta la Lore mai demult. Mai stii?

Despre cum e salonul azi, impodobit in auriu, argintiu si alb, cu panglici atranate din candelabrul trainic si cadourile impachetate cochet in fiecare colt al incaperilor de poveste, am sa-ti spun data viitoare.

Astazi vreau sa-ti arat ultimele mele modele de manichiura, in ton cu atmosfera sezonului.

Stiu cat de bine e sa ai o sursa buna de inspiratie cand te asezi in fata manichiuristei curioase. Chiar stiu. - Asa ca lasa-ma sa te ajut.

Snowflake Jewel

I took the pictures above on the first day we saw snow in Cluj. I told you I don't believe in coincidences and this was quite a suspicious one.

I left the salon waving my hand, excited by the light's reflection in the tiny gems. The snow flake is built out of precious stones, wrapped in gold.

 

Oh my! I can't believe this! - It's actually snowing again right now, as I'm typing. Large flakes scatter ever so gracefully behind the glass that separates us. - I think this is my favorite weather for writing.

Sorry for getting so distracted, but this is actually the second time it's snowing this year. - Talk about coincidences, right?

 

As you can imagine, I haven't worn any rings for a while now. I don't want anything to distract the attention from this jewelry's glow.

It's placed in acrylic at the nail's base. - That means it won't fall even if you want it to. And the color is one from Lore's own designs. I chose it based on my lipstick palette for the winter.

I still have these jewels right now, one flake of gold, stolen from a story, on every ring finger. Burgundy lips match my manicure. They're as dark and intense,

..and the lipstick's named "Living Legend".

Imagini de mai sus le-am facut in ziua primei ninsori. V-am spus ca nu cred in coincidenta, iar aceasta a fost din nou una tare suspecta.

Plecasem din salon fluturandu-mi mana, incantata de reflectia luminii in pietricelele pretioase din flugusorul de nea.

 

Si acum ninge - nu pot sa cred! Chiar acum cand iti scriu. Fulgi mari cad lin dincolo de geamul care ne desparte. - Cred ca aceasta e vremea mea preferata de scris.

Scuza-ma ca mi-am pierdut randul, doar ca e chiar a 2-a oara cand ninge anul acesta. Pf - Apropo de coincidente!

 

Dupa cum iti poti imagina, am lasat deoparte inelele pentru o perioada buna. Nu vreau sa distraga nimic atentia de la gingasia bijuteriei.

E prinsa cu acril la baza unghiei. - Nu cade nici de vrei. Iar culoarea, din selectia celor create intocmai de Lore, am ales-o in functie de paleta inchisa a rujurilor mele de iarna.

Si acum imi troneaza pe inelare, cate un fulg auriu furat dintr-o poveste, iar pe buze port un burgundy la fel de inchis si de intens,

..pe nume "Living Legend".

Snow white and lace

The second manicure I had before Today's one. I decided it together with Andreea, one of the salon's experts, a beauty.

I wanted a simple, yet refined design. So I got my clumsy hands in the lace accessories box.I spotted the beige one right away and put it aside. It reminded me of vintage lingerie, jutting out under a fringed dress. It figures why I never let go of that pattern ever since.

"I want this one right here!"

First we decided to apply it on a black base, "for the sake of contrast". But something was not quite right..  it looked great, even seductive thanks to the lace, but the final effect was not really it.

Hm..

"What if we place it on white?" I think out loud, having the winter's atmosphere and my thick sweaters in mind. Not to mention that white is probably the most elegant shade there is.

Andreea, all of the sudden,  gets this rebellious expression as if ready to do something outrageously crazy. She shows her perfectly aligned teeth in a wide grin and says: "YEAH! Let's go for it!"

Laughter fills me up in an instant.

The thing is, usual clients avoid white manicures since they get dirty easier, but the effect, we both knew, was totally worth it.

Cea de a 2-a o aveam inainte. Am hotarat-o impreuna cu Andreea, una dintre frumoasele profesioniste ale salonului.

Imi doream un model simplu, dar rafinat. Asa am ajuns sa-mi bag mainile prin modelele de dantela. Pe cea bej am ochit-o intai si am pus-o deoparte. Ma ducea cu gandul la portjartierele acelea vintage, ivindu-se sub o rochie franjurata. Iti imaginezi ca nu i-am mai dat drumul de atunci.

"Asta vreau!"

Intai am decis sa o aplicam pe o baza neagra, "sa fie contrast". Dar ceva parca nu era tocmai potrivit.. Arata exceptional, chiar seducator datorita dantelutei, dar n-a dus la efectul final pe care mi-l doream.

Hm..

"Ce zici sa-l punem pe alb?" Spun gandidu-ma numai la atmosfera de iarna, la puloverele de acasa si la eleganta pe care o prezinta albul mereu.

Andreea, cu expresia rebela ca si cum ar fi gata sa faca o nebunie adolescentina, imi spune ranjind cu dintii perfect aliniati: "DA, alb facem!"

M-a pufnit rasul.

Clientele nu vor deobicei culori deschise pentru ca se murdaresc mai usor, dar efectul, stiam amandoua, merita din plin.


 
 

P.S.

Tot mai multe domnisoare se indreapta spre o cariera in serviciile de beauty. Domeniul ia amploare de la o zi la alta, iar clientii devin din ce in ce mai insetati pentru calitate. Astfel creste piata si se ridica standardele.

Cat despre atmosfera saloanelor si vesnica companie placuta, nici nu cred ca mai e nevoie sa va mai povestesc.

Sunt convinsa ca ati vazut pozele de la Nail Art by Lore.

Bun, vreau sa informez cu ceva care s-ar putea sa va starneasca interesul:

In ianuarie Lore va incepe un curs desfasurat pe o perioada de 6luni, dedicat atat incepatorilor cat si profesionistilor.

Pentru a putea avea astfel de rezultate si a tine clientele ca mine mereu fericite, Lore v-a pus la dispozitie un program de

perfectionare profesionala cuprinzator, structurat, profesionist.

"Dedicat celor care cauta EXCELENTA."
