The New Naked Manicure Trend You Need To Try

Hands down, the prettiest nail designs of the moment

The naked manicure is one of this season’s chicest nail trends. From warm beiges to soft pinks – and cool taupe tones.

There’s a nude manicure or neutral nail art design for everyone. The secret? Finding a colour with an undertone that suits your skin tone. While the search for the perfect nude nail polish is seemingly endless when it comes to defining the ultimate barely-there hue a few classic nail polish options come to mind; Essie’s Ballet Slippers, OPI’s Samoan Sand and Zoya. 

Opting for gel nails or SNS manicure  — guaranteed to remain glossy and intact for up to three weeks — is tempting. For those who want to avoid potentially risky UV exposure and damaging their natural nails, there’s another option: good old fashion nail polish. 

When it comes to longevity, the new crop of long-wearing nail polish formulas will last for seven to ten days. While you might be prone to skipping the base and topcoat to save time – they will dramatically extend the life of your manicure and support the health of our nails.
