Naked Manicure: The Naked Truth – Shelle

NM StoriesI’m a mother of two, so painting my nails isn’t exactly Number 1 on my priority list. Between working full time and raising a family, it’s hard to find time where I can spend 20 minutes waiting for my nails to dry. If anything, I could only find just enough time to put on a clear coat of nail polish while on a call at the office, but it didn’t help with any of my nails’ imperfections, like splitting and ridging—a reoccurring and frustrating problem that seemed to have only gotten worse after my pregnancy. That’s when I decided to give the Naked Manicure kit a shot.

After consistently using the product for a month, I’ve noticed a great difference in the quality of my nails. Not only did the kit help fill in my ridges, but it even helped my nails grow stronger and healthier. In the past, after working so hard to maintain my nail growth, my weak nails would split and I would have to cut them down to the quick, forcing me to start all over again from square one. Now, the Naked Manicure kit helps my nails grow healthy and strong so splitting isn’t an issue. Miraculously, the polish doesn’t even take long to dry!

What I love most about this kit is that it covers up the damage and improves the look of your nails, while other treatments are just a clear coat where you can still see the damage underneath. This is especially great for hairdressers whose hands and nails are constantly in water, being weakened and worn away. If I could find the time to keep my nails looking polished and healthy, anybody could! –Shelle

Bright Citrus Nail Art

Zoya CitrusOne of the best parts of summer is sitting out in the sun with a glass of lemonade. This citrus manicure will perfectly complement your end of summer days out in the sun. We love the vibrant colors as a way to bring the sun into your everyday life.

What you’ll need…

Step 1: Paint each nail with the Anchor Base Coat. Follow up with two coats of Wendy on each nail. Wendy will really let Cole pop and create an amazing manicure!

Step 2: Paint a half-circle at the tip of each nail with Cole.

Step 3: After each nail is dry, outline the bottom of each half circle with Snow White.

Step 4: Next, paint a dot in the middle of each nail with Snow White. After you have done this, paint diagonal lines, joining at the dot to complete the slices of each “fruit”.

Step 5: Finally, paint each nail with Zoya Armor Top Coat and enjoy your citrus manicure!

Naked Manicure is Perfect On the Go!

Princess Polish NMExcited to try the new Naked Manicure system? Danielle from Princess Polish put together an amazing post to help get you started! She loved the Pink Perfector to brighten her nails and even out the coloring, perfect for fairer skin. The Buff Perfector similarly enhances your nails but works better for a “peachier” skin tone. Nude works well for those with a more beige coloring and gives the perfect natural look for their nail bed. Danielle also found that Mauve worked for her, however, not as well as the Buff Perfector. Mauve is best for those with a darker nail bed. We are excited to say that Danielle discovered that her Naked Manicure was able to last for a full week with minor chipping and that in the 25 days that she has been wearing the system she has not broken or cracked a nail!

How nice would it be to paint your nails on a Sunday night and know that you could get a whole week at the office, PLUS drinks on a Friday after work, a Saturday out with friends, and maybe a Sunday BBQ out of a mani? Not only would it be stellar, but it IS possible with the Zoya Naked Manicure system! -Danielle from Princess Polish

We are so glad that Danielle loved the system and cannot wait to see even more of your responses! Tag your Naked Manicure pictures with #NakedManicures to be featured on our website!

Naked Manicure: The Naked Truth – Danielle

Naked TruthAfter learning about the Naked Manicure kit and how it promoted healthy, natural nails, I decided to take it home to test it on my parents, who have happily (and sometimes forcibly) volunteered to be guinea pigs for plenty of my projects in the past. Being quite the handy man [or insert job title here], my dad has really cracked nails, so I thought a manicure –  especially one that promotes healthy, lasting effects—would be perfect for him. When I asked him if I could paint his nails, he was hesitant at first, but when I explained the kit was suited for both women and men, and that it would help the appearance of his nails over time, he agreed. Immediately, he noticed a crazy difference: his cracked nails were filled in and looked much smoother! He said he has tried using an acrylic powder solution in the past to fix this problem, but it didn’t help as much as the Naked Manicure protector polish. The best part? It didn’t look like he was wearing nail polish at all! It could be his little secret.

Then, I tried the kit on my mom, who has ridging on her nails. She happily obliged when I explained the benefits and offered her hand in excitement. With one coat, the protector polish filled in her ridges and immediately smoothed and polished her nails with a glossy finish. Delighted with the results, my mom said her nails looked healthier and more “alive” than they have in a long time! The very next day, my mother woke up shrieking with joy. “Danielle!” she called to me in the hall, “I LOVE my nails!” She was so impressed with the lasting effects of the manicure that she ended up texting me periodically out of the blue for days to follow: “My nails still look amazing!” she would text happily. It is safe to say the Naked Manicure kit made us happier than we expected. —Danielle
