Naked Manicure Review: cdbnails

cdbnailsBlogger, cdbnails recently featured the Naked Manicure System showing a before and after, as well as her experience using the system. We absolutely love how her nails turned out just moments after application. The system treats, protects, and corrects natural nails by filling in ridges, neutralizing discoloration, and more – all while adding long-term health benefits to promote natural growth.

“…during those 3 days I showered, washed my hands numerous times, used oils and lotions, even carved a pumpkin! Barely any wear at all!” -cdbnails

A Skeletal Nail Look for Halloween

The Nightmare Before Christmas is a classic Halloween movie – or is it Christmas? In any case, Jack the Skeleton is a staple character for the spooky season. Here’s a great Halloween-inspired nail look to try using Zoya Nail Polish!

Colors Used: Zoya Nail Polish in Raven & Zoya Purity

Tools Used: A dotting tool, and a thin striping brush

Step 1: Prep nails using Zoya Remove + and apply Anchor Base Coat.

Step 2: Paint all nails except one accent nail using Zoya Raven. Use Zoya in Purity for the accent nail.

Step 3: Choose which nails you want to stripe. Once the base is completely dry, take a thin striping brush and create 4-5 thin lines vertically down the nail with Zoya Nail Polish in Purity.

Step 4: For Jack’s face: Create two dots for the eyes using a dotting tool and drag down a bit to make them large ovals. Create two small lines for the nostrils. Next, draw a smile line from one edge of the nail to the other. Finally, make vertical lines on the mouth for the stitches.

Step 5: Once your accent nails are mostly dry, seal in your festive new look with Zoya Armor Top Coat!

Vampy Halloween Manicure

It’s time to get SPOOKY! Halloween is right around the corner and we are getting into the season with some vampy nail art! We were inspired by Indian Ocean Polish’s gradient look but we added our own twist to the mani! Learn how to do our Vampy Halloween Manicure below.
What You’ll Need:
-A Light red
-A metallic red
-A dark burgandy
-A dark purple
-A plastic bagSteps:
Vampy Gradient Accent Nail
1. Choose your colors. We went with Zoya Nail Polish in Sooki, Zoya Nail Polish in Elisa, Zoya Nail Polish in Claire, and Zoya Nail Polish in Casey
2. Paint your base with the lightest red. (#ZoyaSooki) Let dry.
3. Take a plastic bag, and paint thick strips starting with the lightest color to the darkest.
4. Quickly press the bag against your nail, and swirl it around a little bit.

For the rest of the mani…
1. Paint each nail except your pointer finger black. We went with Zoya Nail Polish in Raven.
2. Paint the same bright red on your pointer finger and let dry.
3. Using the colors from the gradient nail, free hand vertical stripes. We applied #ZoyaElisa, #ZoyaClaire, and finally #ZoyaCasey.
4. Lastly, top each nail with Zoya Armor Top Coat to make them shine!

Now get out there and dress up your nails for a simply spook-tastic Halloween! Send in your nail look using #EverydayZoya
