Dongdaemun Choc Choc Nail Sample Designs

I believe that some friends who visit Korea want to do their nails but feel some designs are too flashy for their taste. So Creatrip found this salon. Choc Choc Nail is not only great for wearing simple styles but even great for adding a few gorgeous points.

I personally prefer white french nail tips, which works great for any occasions. The pink and delicate nail plates also look very beautiful.

If you prefer fancier and gorgeous style manicure, you are in good hands! Choc Choc Nail in Dongdaemun has highly skilled, artistic staff who can meet your expectations. A lot of Koreans try various gorgeous styles. I usually go to the nail salon with my friends and try fancy manicures when I need to change my moods.

If you choose exquisite nail art designs at Choc Choc Nail in Dongdaemun, the price can go up a bit higher. There are plenty of styles you can choose from. Make your decision and tell the staff which style you want. You can browse at Choc Choc Nail Salon SNS account for some inspirations. INSTAGRAM (Click Here!)

到了景福宮的salon de reina 做得過程是沒有不好(也是用翻譯) 但是覺得cp不高 偏低⋯⋯ 八指就是在台很普通的法式,只有兩指畫。這樣價格110000(貼的部分只有兩顆小黑點點)

這次是預約景福宮的salon de reina,被超可愛的柴犬設計燒到,所以預約了,店面不會很難找,地鐵站出來之後一直直走就可以找到,當天幫我做的美甲師人超好,雖然不會講中文,但還是會想辦法跟你溝通(我們是用google翻譯哈哈),價錢會先算給你看,你確定都OK後,才會開始製作。整個製作過程都很細心,本來沾到旁邊一點我說沒關係,但美甲師堅持要弄好才行,真的非常有職人的精神?。如果有問題都可以直接跟美甲師說,都可以調整的,重點是做完美甲還順便幫我做了手部按摩,真的超級貼心!做完美麗的指甲,美甲師會幫你拍照喔??

因為隔天要去看愛豆音樂劇的關係 所以在抵達韓國當天就立馬奔去做美美的指甲 透過Creatrip的預約系統,預約了在上水站附近的NAIL BOX 只是比較烏龍的是 我時間抓的太剛好的,導致飛機delay時,我到NAIL BOX時也遲到了 (真的對NAIL BOX的三位美甲師感到非常抱歉ㅠㅠ) 自從入了美甲坑後,在台灣每個月都會讓不同的美甲師替我造型 在韓國第一次體驗完後,讓我發誓每次來韓國都要來韓國做 一坐下後,兩位美甲師一起 一人替我做一手 (我不確定這在韓國是不是算常態) 在整個過程中都能感受到兩位美甲師的細心及要求完美的樣子 沒有因為我的遲到而馬虎或隨意做 覺得讓我覺得驚艷的是 在整個光療結束後還幫我在手上塗護手霜&手部按摩 整個做完後,讓我一整天的疲倦和煩躁完全消失了哈哈 覺得比較可惜的是 自己的韓文不好,沒辦法和美甲師完整的表達自己想要的style 因此選了NAIL BOX 10月份的活動款式為基底 沒想到換了個底色,做出來的感覺像是新的設計,完全是我喜歡的style 整個滿意到翻呀

這次預約了Nail Box的美甲服務,店面很好找,內部裝潢也很小巧溫馨。 美甲師彩繪地非常細心,人也很溫柔呢! 因為不會韓文所以全程用翻譯軟體跟美甲師溝通款式 XD 辛苦美甲師了~ 很有耐心的一句一句翻譯 >< 6週過後指甲還像剛做好的一樣美美的,覺得開心>w<
