2 simple DIY nail art for this Vardavar

Today, on 28th of July, the holiday of Vardavar is celebrated throughout Armenia. It is one of the most widespread national holidays of our country. The history of this holiday is very old. It is related to both ancient Armenian pagan times and to the traditions and holidays of Armenian Apostolic church. The meaning of this holiday for Armenian Apostolic church is described in the notes of one of the witnesses and contemporaries of Jesus Christ. According to those notes, Jesus Christ appeared in front of three of his apostles surrounded by an extremely bright light. Concerning the ancient Armenian pagan times, the idea of holiday Vardavar was to worship water and every natural occurrence related to it. Perhaps at that time originated the custom of watering each other on this day. And this custom is preserved up until now. 

Vardavar brings everybody together to spend fun and enjoyable time during the hottest month of July. And in order to completely enjoy your holiday, your nails should be in perfect shape. 💅🏼 Ne offers you 2 easy design ideas that you can do by yourself with our nail polishes and be trendy in color this Vardavar. ✨

  1. We have specifically chosen this design because the pink patterns very much remind us of rose petals. Due to the flexible and comfortable edges of Ne nail polish, you can get this design by only one touch. For this design we used the following Ne colored nail polishes:

5 sights in Armenia that inspired the glitter collection of Ne

Ne is famous for its’ diverse and Armenian names for each nail lacquer. This week let’s find out where the inspiration for those interesting names comes from.

The last glitter collection of Ne is named after a few famous sights in Armenia with some adaptations. Ne specifically chose those sights that are not very famous among both natives and tourists. As it is summer and, thus, time for travelling, this blog article could also  help you find the perfect vacation spot in Armenia. 

  1. A203 Trchkan waterfall

Trchkan waterfall is situated on the border of Shirak and Lori regions, on the river Pambak. Due to its upland location and cold water, Trchkan waterfall is the perfect spot to run to during the burning hot summer season of Armenia. Also, it is a place where you can fully enjoy the nature of our beautiful homeland. Getting inspired by the beauty of Trchkan waterfall, Ne created this perfect combination of blue and silver glitter.

2. A196 Khndzoreskandzav 

Kndzoresk village is famous for its swinging bridge, but very few people know about the mysterious caves of Kndzoresk. “Andzav” means cave in Armenia, thus the name for this perfect gold glitter: Khndzoreskandzav. According to historians, in the middle of 20th century in these caves were living approximately 8000 people, who were moved to New Khndzoresk in 1950.  🔮

3. M375 Run Arpa!

Arpa is economically and historically one of the most important rivers for Armenia. In its upside current Arpa river is surrounded by heavenly nature landscape. Here are situated the famous city of Djermuk and the waterfall with the same name. The seaweeds are very common in Arpa, that is why our team got inspired by the emerald green of this river and created this amazing shade of glitter. 💚

4. A199 The secret of Magil

The cave of Magil is situated in Vayots Dzor region and as early as the neolithic times, some tribes used to live there. A lot of equipment and jewelry from stones were also discovered in this cave. Inside there are many undiscovered places which give mystery to Magil. Getting inspired exactly by that mystery, we came up with this unique combination of red and silver glitters. 🐾

5. A200 Qarahundjamut

And, of course, Ne could not emit the beautiful and symbolic Qarahundj from its list. This amazing complex, near the city of Sisian, is older than the famous Stonehenge. Most probably, during ancient times Qarahundj was used as an observatory as the holes on the stones show exact destinations and measure the distance of stars precisely. Qarahundj is the most beautiful during the sunset. As sunset is “mayramut” in Armenian, we combined the names and got Qarahunjamut for this amazing shade of pink glitter. 🌅

5 ways to care for your cuticles

Cuticles are the protectors of our nails. Very often nail masters suggest not to cut the cuticles because in that case infections may easily get inside. On the other hand, nail polish does not go on the nails smoothly and evenly. That is why the best solution is to take right care of your cuticles in order to always keep them clean and have perfect mani-pedi finish every time. Here are tips from Ne to you.

  1. The most important thing is to soften your cuticles before trimming them. One effective way to do that is to soak your nails in hot and soapy water. 
  2. After softening your cuticles, apply Cuticle Remover. The Cuticle Remover from Ne helps to easily push the cuticles back and trim the dead cells. 
  3. Never cut the entire cuticle. Remove only the excess skin and hangnails.
  4. The area around the nail is very delicate. It is very common for cuticles to peel or crack. That is why the use of cuticle oils is highly recommended. Ne offers a variety of cuticle oils in different aromas including almond, fresia, pineapple, lemon, cocoa, peach, orange and every other freshening scent that you can think of. Using Ne cuticle oils will help to increase the circulation around your nails which will lead to stronger and faster growth. 
  5. Our last tip would be to pay attention to which salon you attend. It is very important to make sure that your nail master uses certified and sterilized equipment.
