boca raton nail salonsThis year you can bedazzle any one of your colleagues or family members when you give out their presents with a sexy-chic manicure that’s sure to make an impression. Our nail salon in Boca Raton has just the colors and styles right at your fingertips. No pun intended. Get your cell phone ready because after reading this blog you’ll want to make an appointment! Ready? Go!

While we’ve seen the hot look of a chrome wrapped car, this 2017 you can rock out with chrome plated nails. Ask you, manicurist, to see a variety of shades from dark gun metal to gold foil. These colors are ultra-sexy and are ready to click the champagne glasses right along with you.

Unwrapping gifts can be super embarrassing when your nails are on the fritz! Try out a short style with well-manicured and groomed cuticles to match. There’s nothing worse than taking a beautiful photo with your nail bed and cuticle looking like it’s ready to star in Halloween. Don’t hide your hands, be proud of them with a professional ‘mani.’

Depending on your work schedule if you’re able to sport the longer nails then try a new shape such as coffin or stiletto to pump up your style. Another shape that’s sweet is the tapered square which is much like the coffin only it’s wider at the ends.

Don’t be afraid to get trendy with the glitter and transition techniques. We’ve seen so many variations of this from one nail painted to half and half or just glitter tips. A super smoking look is using flat paint finishes with glitter accents on one or many nails. Shiny and matte are the latest trends in the nail world.

It’s cute when people can pull it off, but a decal or two for the holidays is nail art. Think snowflakes (even if you live in Boca) bows, bling, sparkle and candy canes to liven up any paint job out there. Salon Sora’s nail salon in Boca Raton knows you’ve got character, now let’s see you use it!

From your head to your toes we want you to be the princess at the ball. Keep in mind 90% is you attitude the rest you can leave to us for making you look stunning before the ball drops. Ask you manicurist for the look that’s right for you.

Salon Sora Sombre Style for 2017

By | Hair Color, Hair Salon, Hair Styles | No Comments

flocolordone copy26Many of you have already heard of the term “Ombre” which is a transitional color trend, which swept the nation for 2016. For the New Year, you’ll hear the word “Sombre” which is taking the place of the big panels of lighter or darker colors for a more subtle and softer look. Salon Sora has just the right shade for you to keep you looking stunning even during the winter months of Southern Florida. Let’s take a closer look.

When you live in a place like Boca Raton you can expect two things. One, your tan may be faded since you might not be spending too much time in the sun and Two, you’re still supposed to look your best no matter what the season may be. To keep your face looking bright and cheerful, highlights are a sure-fire method to achieve this effect. With the Salon Sora Sombre approach, you’ll still have darker roots with highlighted ends that use a soft blend of both high and low lights. This effect gives a subtle transition between the colors and looks more natural.

The trick to the perfect transition is not to make it seem like the hair has been color treated at all. This hair style creates the illusion the hair has been gently kissed by the sun which makes it perfect for this time of year.

The best part about going Sombre is you can stick with any shade or tone that you’d like and still create the effect by using lighter shades. For instance, let’s say you’re a spicy ginger, with a lot of nutmeg and cinnamon tones. The colors we would use to highlight your hair would be soft golden blondes with strawberry to make the flat tones of the darker reds pop with a slight highlight.

With Sombre colors we don’t pull the hair through a cap or weave it in. This technique is typically done by painting the product directly onto the hair without using foils and such. Although each stylist has their way of achieving the same outcome, this is one of the most common.

With a little hair ingenuity, we can make your hair go from the darker shades of mmmm, boring to a bombshell that creates as a stunning statement to carry you all the way to spring time. Don’t forget to bring in photos of the shade you’re looking for and share them with your stylist. We love pictures and examples, and this will help us to pick the look that will complement the rest of your features such as skin tones and eye color. Until then, Hugs from all of us at Salon Sora!

Salon Sora’s New Year Styles for 2017

By | Hair Salon | No Comments

make up salon boca ratonWith the new year gaining quickly upon us, many people are scrambling to get their last-minute cuts and colors in to look fabulous before the dropping of the ball. In this week’s blog, we uncover some party styles for you to consider before booking your appointment with the best salon in Boca Raton. Three, two, one!

The Big Bushy Braid | Beachy Lobs  |  Spectacular Colors  |  The Chanel Platinum Manicure  |  Dark Lips & Cat Eyes

You can turn just about any magazine page today and find the big bushy braid as one super smoking hot style for this year’s newest hair styles. One thing you’ll notice is the many different styles of how to wear the big bushy braid. Of course, these hairstyles would work more for those with long hair. However, if you’ve got medium hair, that’s long enough you can add a few extensions made of human hair to enhance your look. Nonetheless, this is a romantic and alluring way to wear your hair that’s just right for the 2017 New Year.

Next, it’s off to chat about the beach lob. Rather than a Bob, that is tapered and cut and can coiffe them to just about any length; this is a cut that derives from longer styles and is lobbed off at the shoulders or nape with longer strands toward your face. What makes it beachy is the way you style it afterward. Soft waves work better with hair that is not freshly shampooed. If you haven’t used a dry shampoo, you might want to try one using this hair technique.

Today’s hair colors are more wild and vivid than they were let’s say ten years ago. Pinks, purples and now the neon dyes enhance your natural hair color and bring it to new heights. Silver or Platinum is an ultra-chic tint that brings a bit of mystery to any age. Ask your stylist to hook you up with just the right color for your skin tones.

The Chanel nail colors and manicures are dramatic and look stunning for both day and evening wear. Think metallic mixed with black, silver, and gray. We love the way these colors ‘POP’ when dressed in a little black dress or your office wardrobe.

Lastly, let’s talk about your makeup. This year the lip is dark and matte. Drop the lipgloss and pile on the lipliner in shades of deep cherry, burgundy, and plum. When you live in South Florida and sport a year-round tan, these shades of lipstick are complimentary. After you pile on the dark lips, use a cat-eye liner to top it off. You can find many ways to make the perfect cat eyes on places like YouTube and Pinterest.

With all these Salon Sora tips for your to consider and try out, you’ll be bringing in the New Year with a Big Bang!

Holiday Nails by Salon Sora for 2016

By | Manicures and Pedicures, Nail Salon | No Comments

This year if you’re looking to be sexy from your head down to your toes, our nail salon in Boca Raton, can help you put your finger on just the right seasonal polish and nail art that will help you go from super to super-sexy in 2.5 minutes! Let’s point to the obvious, shall we?Nail salon boca raton fl

First, let’s say clean and healthy nails are in style no matter what season it is. A French or American manicure never seems to be old-school. However, add something chic to your white tips like glitter or gold to accent the already super-girl handle.

Gold foil designs over shades of green and red can tip things off when it comes to nail art. Ask your manicurist what his/her favorite design is this year, and we’re sure they’ll give you a dynamite and decorative pattern that will keep your hands from being hidden inside your pocket.

Geometric patterns are not only contemporary, but they’re also very popular throughout the fashion magazines. Bring in the look if you find something you admire and we’ll see if we can’t copy it. Be sure to browse through Pinterest to get a different perspective.

When you live in a place such as Southern Florida, you’ll find it’s not appropriate table manners to have dirty, dingy nails. Try a new shade of blue or a pearly pink to brighten up your fingertips even when you’re not sporting a tan.

If you’re into cute, think about adding a few snowflakes or some contemporary lace designs. This type of nail art is perfect for both child and adult and are ideal for the 2016 to 2017 holidays.

Black and Gold is a hot commodity for classic nail techniques. We’ve seen a lot of faded techniques as well. More nail technicians are focusing on the half-moons and decorating the nail beds from the cuticle up to the tip. Although this is opposite of what is typically requested, it’s a unique way of showing off those sexy nails.

Trying something new is half the fun. Be sure to look for a design or technique that will match your holiday gowns or outfit. Our nail salon manicurists in Boca Raton,  will be happy to suggest the look that right for the dress or wardrobe. The best part is when you hear the compliments on how pretty your hands are for this year’s big celebrations.

By | Nail Salon | No Comments

When someone asks you for a hand, do you put them in your pockets? Well, you won’t need to be ashamed of the way you little digits look any longer. Salon Sora is always on top of the latest trends and here’s one you’ll want to sport all day long!  In this blog we’ll help you get a grip on making your mani-pedi something everyone will applaud! Read on!

Salon Sora NailsShifting nail polish sounds different than what it is. I must admit when I first heard of this incredible nail technique, I assumed it was something that happens to your polish as a defect. Well, no glitch with these extremities, as this happens to be one of the ‘hottest’ nail techniques in Boca Raton today.

Much like the mood rings of the past, the nail polish changes colors to reflect the way a person is feeling. Now hold on. Changing colors? What the heck does that mean? The answer can be right in the palm of your manicurist’s hand!

This is a fun lacquer nail polish that has the ability to conform to your body temperature. For example, pinks turn nude, blues turn purple and all you’ll do is turn heads with this ultra-cool polish.

Shifting Nail Polish (also called temperature or thermal polish) Is elegant and stunning with a slight twist of OMG! How fun is it to wear a color that changes when you do? Get funky with your oranges and greens to give it a pineapple twist. Or consider a French manicure using changing color polish on the tips or in the beds of the nail for a really spicy effect!

Whatever the case may be, your hands should always look their best, and we’ve got techniques that last long in between visits. One of the benefits to Shifting Polish is its ability to be peeled off without destroying your natural nails. Super important for those people who have thinning nails.

There’s a large selection of gradient change polishes that include glitter or flat colors for your preference. So rather than being bored with your vanilla nail polishes, select two colors in one or one that changes with your mood!

Warning: This manicure is highly suggested for those who have children. Hugs from Salon Sora!

Manicures for the Boca’s Professional Women

By | Manicures and Pedicures, Nail Salon | No Comments

Nails for the Professional Woman

When it comes to your hands you may think that no one notices but your fingernails say a lot about who you are as a person. With all of the creative nail designs and shapes that we have today a can sometimes be a challenge in deciding what to ask your manicurist for. When it comes to professional women, however, more than self-expression meets the eye. But the real question is who’s eyes?

Without a doubt the way you groom your nails can give off a particular message which in some cases may not help you climb up the corporate ladder. Just because the trend may be a particular shape or a custom polish may not necessarily be the best choice. But what is acceptable and what you’re willing to live with maybe two different things.

First, let’s look at the different types of nail shapes for you to consider.

Kylie Jenner may have kicked off the ‘stiletto’ which is nothing new. You may remember your grandmother having long pointed nails. While those are great for giving a back scratch, they may not be what your boss is looking for. Depending on the line of work that you do this retro sharp nail shape may give off the wrong message.

Despite their stunning, the ‘coffin’ shape may be more acceptable on people like Barbra Streisand and not the vice president of marketing. The other issue is the length of your nails. The coffin shape tends to be a longer style compared to the square or round. If you are someone who spends multiple hours on the keyboard, you may want to consider a shorter version.

The most popular nail shapes would be square, oval, round and ‘squoval’ which is a hybrid between square and oval. The difference would be rounded edges as opposed to sharp and precise.

Another elegant shape to consider is that of ‘almond’ which tends to be a long in length and tapers off towards the tip but is rounded. Whichever shape you decide to keep in mind that activities such as typing, dialing a phone and opening boxes tend to wear on the shape in a short period of time. That holds true even with acrylic nails.

Now let’s discuss color. Color trends will come and go. While that is safe to say selecting a color that is neutral and subdued is your safest bet. French and American manicures are always safe and look elegant no matter what’s trending.

Stay away from bright colors, patterns, polka dots and weird color schematics. That is, unless your corporate officers will not scoff at your selection. It’s safe to say clean, conservative nails are best for professional women.

The dress code may be more liberal in fields such as art, fashion, retail, etc. but in verticals that are more conservative make sure that your choice of nail design proceeds.

Another thing to note is to make sure that your nails are always well manicured and clean. People will notice when your nail polish is chipped or peeling. They will also notice when your cuticles are dry and scaly. A biweekly visit to your manicurist will ensure that your nails are always looking their best.

Of course, these are a few suggestions for you to consider prior to your visit with your manicurist. However, only you know what’s best for the goals you’re trying to achieve.
