I believe in manicures & wearing lipstick! (Audrey Hepburn)

Ce a fost in mintea mea cand am scris acest articol? Simplu: daca tot folosim oja cel putin o data pe saptamana macar sa stim de unde provine! Cine a inventat cea mai ceruta manichiura ever?! Care au fost primele nuante?! De ce “alb”?! De ce “nude”?! s.a.

Am scris articolul acesta si pe www.arenamall.ro/blog/frumusete insa, aici va voi arata ce tip de manichiura si ce nuante prefer.

DE CE? In vremurile demult apuse, atat barbatii cat si femeile au folosit diverse artificii cosmetice pentru infrumusetarea fetei și corpului. Ceea ce a deosebit secolele din acest punct de vedere au fost natura materialelor folosite si intensitatea cu care erau aplicate cosmeticele. De-a lungul timpului, in acest procedeu au fost utilizate substante periculoase pentru sanatate, chiar letale, cum ar fi fondurile de ten pe baza de plumb sau mercur.

CAND? Abia in 1917 a aparut, oficial, pe piata lacul de unghii, desi era deja folosit sub diverse forme si cu cativa ani inainte. Manichiura frantuzeasca a fost inventata in anul 1975, cu piesa de rezistenta chiar lacul de unghii. Acest tip de manichiura este apreciat si in ziua de azi si cu siguranta nu se va demoda prea curand intrucat, nu numai ca este o manichiura “curata” (cum o numesc eu), ci este si eleganta, clasica si se asorteaza cu orice (oja alba pe varful ungiilor + lac de unghii transparent). Ba mai mult, o poti reinventa dupa bunul tau plac sau in functie de tendinte. De exemplu, eu am ales sa aplic pe deasupra oja roz sau beige si chiar am inlocuit albul din varf cu portocaliu, verde neon sau rosu.

In principiu, te poti juca cum iti pofteste inima! In galeria foto vei regasi modelele pentru care am optat eu in ceea ce priveste acest tip de manichiura, dar si cum am deviat de la ea.

CINE? Jeff Pink, creatorul brandului ORLY (numit dupa sotia sa) este cel care a inventat ceea ce numim astazi “manichiura frantuzeasca”. Motivul: in anii ’70, actritele isi doreau o nuanta a unghiilor care sa mearga cu fiecare articol de imbracaminte, la orice ocazie, in fiece anotimp. Acesta a inventat nuanta “nude” integrand-o in manichiura frantuzeasca prezentata pentru prima data la Fashion Week in Paris.

Ulterior, CHANEL a prezentat acest tip de manichiura intr-o nuanta de roz pal in primavara lui 2013. In toamna aceluiasi an, RACHEL ROY a reinventat acest tip de manichiura, lasand nude pe “semiluna” fiecarei unghii si colorand restul unghiei intr-o nuanta tare. Ulterior, RODARTE introduce in manichiura de zi cu zi auriul si argintiul pe varfuri, in loc de clasicul alb. WES GORDON si NICOLE MILLER, in sezonul primavara-vara 2014, prezintă french-ul “pudrat” doar cu sclipici, pentru un efect wow.

Ce-i drept, m-am chinuit mult timp sa imi fac acasa acest tip de manichiura, insa ma cam chinuiam singura si, din cauza diferitelor activitati domestice (ex. spalatul vaselor), imi sarea oja si seara o luam de la capat cu “pictura”. De aceea, ma duc lunar, cu constiinciozitate, la Simona la Salonul de infrumusetare JOLIE, o adevarata maestra in mani-pedi si plec tot timpul multumita de la ea. Ce-i drept, isi pune mainile in cap cand ii spun ce culori si ce modele vreau, insa e rabdatoare cu mine si ii iese de fiecare data.

In principiu, nu ii cer fluturi sau flori intrucat nu imi place sa fiu prea girlish la mani-pedi, ci mai degraba modele abstracte cu linii, puncte si forme geometrice ce te duc cu gandul la manichiura azteca, insa mai vorbim noi altadata mai pe larg despre asta!

Manichiura cu gel este cea mai buna investitie lunara pe care o fac!

What was I thinking when I wrote this article? It’s very simple: if we use the nail polish at least once a week, the least we can do is to know where it comes from! Who invented the most wanted manicure ever?! What were the original colors?! Why “white”?! Why “nude”?! And so on.

I wrote this article on www.arenamall.ro/blog/frumusete but, here, I will tell you what type of manicure and what colors I really prefer.

WHY? Back in the days, men and women often used different cosmetic products for their face and body. What distinguished one century from another were the ingredients and the amount of product used on face/nails/body. Long ago, people used beauty products that contained dangerous substances for their health, even lethal, such as the skin foundation made of lead or mercury.

WHEN? In 1917 the nail lacquer became an official product, even though it was already used in different forms and situations. The French manicure was invented in 1975, in which the piece of resistance was the nail lacquer. This type of manicure is highly appreciated even today and it’s not going to fade away too soon because it’s a “clean” manicure (as I like to call it), elegant, classic and it matches with everything (white nail polish on the top + transparent nail lacquer on the full length). Furthermore, you can reinvent it as you wish or according to the trends. For example, I chose to replace the nail lacquer with the pink nail polish, and the white with orange, neon green or red.

Basically, you can play however you want! In the photo gallery, you will discover the shapes I chose for the French manicure lately and how I extended it.

WHO? Jeff Pink, the founder of the brand ORLY (named after his wife) is the one who invented the so called “the French manicure”. The main reason: back in the ’70s, the actresses wanted a manicure to match every clothing item, in every occasion, no matter the season. That’s why he invented the shade called “nude”, presenting it during the Fashion Week in Paris.

Afterwards, CHANEL changed the nude with pale pink in the summer of 2013.  In the same year, RACHEL ROY put nude on the half-moon of the nails and a strong color on the rest of the nails. Then, RODARTE introduced the shades silver and gold during the daylight manicure, instead of the classic white. WES GORDON and NICOLE MILLER, in the spring-summer season of 2014, introduced the powdered French only with glitter on the top. Simply wow!

I struggled at home to do the French manicure, but I always managed to ruin it during the domestic activities (e.g. washing the dishes). That’s why, on a monthly basis, I find myself at JOLIE Beauty Salon, at Simona because she is the true master of mani-pedi. I torment her with my ideas regarding the shades I want, but she gets me every time and #shenailsit.

Basically, I don’t ask her to draw butterflies or flowers, because I’m not that girlish when it comes to my nails, I just want stripes, dots and geometric forms for an Aztec manicure. We’ll talk about it later on, in other articles!

I really think that the gel manicure is the best monthly investment I do!
