Soirée Yelp Elite à Lyon : Bar à Gourmandises @ Nail Design Up



DSC_0301

21 février 2012, il est déjà l'heure de fêter la deuxième soirée Yelp de 2012 à Lyon. Cette fois-ci, il fait beau, plus aussi froid, et les Yelpeurs arrivent en masse et bien à l'heure chez Nail Design Up, nail bar d'un genre nouveau à Lyon. Certains connaissent, d'autres découvrent avec émerveillement la centaine de couleurs de vernis à ongles différents… et que la fête commence : le thème du soir, "Bar à Gourmandises" ! Un bar à ongles pour se faire de jolies mains, un bar à bonbons pour une touche sucrée, un bar à cocktails pour une savoureuse boisson alcoolisée ou non !

Il est à peine 19h30 et les premières Yelpeuses sont déjà assises au bar ou en train de choisir leur couleur de vernis. S'en suivront ensuite deux heures de comparaison d'ongles, de poses et de couleurs, dans une ambiance légère et détendue, comme d'habitude. Elsa E est définitivement convaincue par ses nouvelles mains : "Voilà bientôt 24h… et je ne cesse d'admirer mes petits doigts danser sur le clavier de mon ordinateur ! Et oui, même au travail, entre deux emails envoyés, je repense à cette super soirée Yelp entre cocktails à se damner, gourmandises 100% girly et très nature, sans oublier les spécialistes de la manucure qui ont eu la patience de toutes nous peinturlurer les ongles !"

Quant à Fanny U, elle confirme : "Moi qui était une étrangère au monde de la manucure jusqu'à hier soir, je sens que je vais devenir addict ! La gentillesse de Caroline, de son associé Fabien et de son équipe m'ont vraiment donné envie de revenir mes faire papouiller les ongles !"

En bout de salle, Anaïs, la barmaid du Fantôme de l'Opéra s'affaire et prépare à la chaîne cocktails avec ou sans alcool. Star de la soirée, le cocktail à la vodka "black" et aux fruits rouges, intitulé… "Mademoiselle Camille" (non, non, votre CM refuse toute responsabilité dans ce choix de nom !) remporte un franc succès.

Ainsi les quelques invités masculins présents ne sont pas en reste dans cette ambiance féminine et ont trouvé de quoi s'occuper, au bar ou auprès des bonbons ! Mathieu F confirme, lui qui réalise sa première soirée dans cette ambiance si "girly" : "Je me suis frayé un chemin au milieu de cette foule féminine et j'ai finalement pu atteindre le saint graal rempli d'un nectar à base de Vodka Russe, de Vodka Noire agrémentées de jus fruits de framboise et de fraise (si mes souvenirs sont bons). Rafraîchissant et suffisamment alcoolisé pour me détendre et me permettre de sonder l'ambiance et peut être engager la conversation avec des êtres humains !"

Une guimauve, une fraisette, une poignée de froufrous ou une patience, miam, les bonbons colorés de Violette et Berlingot ont vite trouvé preneurs et si on s'écoutait, on les dévorerait par poignées ! Heureusement que les Yelpeurs sont bien élevés, et pas encore trop affamés ! Comme quoi vernis ultra modernes et bonbons d'antan peuvent tout à fait s'accorder le temps d'une soirée, c'est ça l'esprit Yelp !

Et voici comment en une soirée, les Yelpeuses ont réussi à convaincre les Yelpeurs des bienfaits de la manucure, et vice et versa ! Une soirée riche en rencontres, en fous rires et en bonne humeur, vivement la prochaine, non ?!

———————–

February 21st 2012, it's already time for the second Yelp Elite Event of 2012 in Lyon. This time the weather's more beautiful and it isn't as cold. As usual, yelpers arrive on time at Nail Design Up, a fancy new nail bar in Lyon. Some yelpers already know this hotspot, others are discovering the place and already starting to try and pick a color in between the hundred or so different nail polishes. Let the party begin! The theme for the night: "Bar à Gourmandises"! A nail bar to take care of one's hands, a candy bar for a sugary note and a cocktail bar for a sweet cocktail! 

It's only 7.30pm and the first yelpers are already sitting at the bar and choosing the future color for their nails. During the next two hours, they will chitchat and compare their nails and their color, in a fun and light atmosphere, as usual! Elsa E is already in love with her new hands: "It's been almost 24 hours… and I can't stop admiring my little fingers as they dance on my keyboard! Yes, even at work, in between 2 emails, I think about this great Yelp Elite Event with its great cocktails, 100% girly sweets and of course its mani-pedi specialists and how patient they were with all of our yelpy hands!"

Fanny U confirms the feeling: "I was a total stranger to the world of manicure until yesterday night and now I feel I may become addicted to it! Caroline was so nice, as well as her partner Fabien and their team, and they really made me spend more time taking care of my hands!"

At the bar, Anaïs, the barmaid from Fantôme de l'Opéra is busy preparing tons of virgin or alcohol drinks for the party. Star of the night, a black vodka and red fruits cocktail called… "Mademoiselle Camille" (no, your CM doesn't bear any responsibility at all in that choice of a name!), a real success.

Thanks to the sweets bar and sweet cocktails, the few male guests are not bored despite all of this manicure and girliness! Mathieu F, whose first Elite Event it is, confirms: "I had to go through a crowd of girls and eventually found the Holly Grail, a Russian Vodka, Black Vodka and cranberries and strawberry juice. Fresh and with just enough alcohol to make me relax a but and dare talk to all of these new faces!"

Guimauve, fraisette, froufrous or patience, these vintage sweets' names may not ring a bell to you, but they did to the Lyon yelpers and were highly appreciated, thanks to the two lovely guests from Violette et Berlingot! If there was any need to prove it, yelpers made sure that modern nail polishes and vintage sweets definitely were a perfect fit, that's the Yelpy spirit!

To give Monique V the parting words: "Thank you for this wonderful event! Probably my favorite yet… Some of my favorite yelpers, sweets and fruit juices (yes, we could indeed take cocktails without vodka!), some real quality time with the other girls and of course a few sweet boys too! Thank youuu!"
