How to paint nails in NUDE style

Agree that if the girl is beautiful, she is beautiful in everything, isn’t she? This refers to make-up and hair-styling as well and surely to manicure. Modern trends of this season look into direction of simple and natural things, and this is a perfect chance for us to show how beautiful Mother Nature has created us, not hiding this under layers of make-up. Well if we are talking about manicure, under acrylic nails! I think there aren’t so many girls that didn’t wear them. And I used to sin with that too. I had plenty of them for any taste: either long claw, with which I cut not one tights, or all possible kinds of French, with various drawings or simply of all kinds of rainbow. But all that is in the past now and about a year ago I got rid of them! I confess that I felt relief as if I took away foreign object. And I note that this told on my pocket extremely positively, as I didn’t have to spend lots of money on correction of my nails every 3 weeks. And having counted a little, I figured out that nevertheless you go to a simple manicure even every week, it turns out to be cheaper than one correction. And moreover, what a pleasure I got having purchased great number of multicolored nail polishes for money I saved. Speaking honestly, first after removing acrylic nails, I recolored mine twice a day as I couldn’t get enough of such an opportunity. Of course followers of acrylic nails won’t agree with me and will be filled with indignation according to my such opinion. As such nails are also so convenient; you have done the correction and always go here and there with ready manicure! Surely I agree with you, as it saves up time very much, but we’re stylish girls and want to get with fashion, which nowadays dictates being natural in everything and in manicure as well. Well, what for I just had such a long-lasting introduction? I said all that, because it seems to me that utter opposition to acrylic nails is manicure of “nude” style. Perhaps you will tell that you may create the same thing while having correction too, but not at all as all the essence of this style will be lost! Let’s make clarification what kind of style is it and what hues it includes. “Nude” translated as bare i.e. means that our nails will be both simple and natural. One of the main advantages of this manicure is that it is right for almost any your dress and is relevant to any situation. And it is a perfect way to emphasize the beauty, shape and health of your nails. What hues actually belong to the very style? These hues can be the following: beige, body, light pink, light brown, light grey, white, creamy, slightly seen peach-pale, transparent and milky. Choose any which is closer to you. But I advise you to buy several options, so not to run in a store for nail polish when you will discover all the charm of “nude” manicure. By the way, this season exactly “nude” manicure prevailed at many fashion shows of such world-famous brands as Dolce & Gabbana, Max Mara, Alexander Wang, and Versace. So we’ll start!

You´ll need

  • Sea salt
  • Iodine (or simply iodized salt)
  • Lemon
  • Cosmetic oil for nails
  • Favorite hue of nail polish in “nude” ( I’ll show you for example 3 hues so that you had better idea)
  • Fixing agent

Steps

    So to avoid the negative effect of nail polish on nails (I suppose many of you faced problems of fragility, foliation, and yellow nails after long periods having nail polish) I offer as far as possible, at least once a week to make little bath for hands. We take sea salt – I think many of us noticed that after rest at the sea you come back not only with splendid tan and well-rested look, but with strong nails as well. This is connected with the fact that sea salt possesses necessary microelements not only for our body, but also for nails, it perfectly solves the main problem – fragility and foliation! We add couple of iodine drops for additional supply with useful substances. If you don’t have sea salt or iodine, you can replace these two components by a common iodine salt, I did just like that. Well, and of course we don’t forget about small amount of lemon juice, so to create a light whitening effect. Also try to substitute it with lemon or orange essential oil. We lower hands into the water we got and let them enjoy about 15 minutes.

    After this I like very much to apply cosmetic oil restoring nails to mine. I have bought myself a ready-made one in a pharmacy; it’s absolutely cheap, but has already been pleasing me with perfect result for a long time. You can make an analogue to it on your own by mixing grape seeds oil, jojoba and essential oils (lemon, lavender, tea tree, rosemary). By the way this list of oils is universal as for me! I recommend buying it to every girl. They enrich your shampoo, any cream or they can be added into masks for hair, face. Believe me, you won’t feel sorry about this purchase. How does such mixture of oils impact on pretty nails? It strengthens them and increases their growth (this was an escape for me after I took away my acrylic nails, they were emaciated, broke and almost didn’t grow, thanks to this means I brought them back to life). This mixture makes nails shiny and softens cuticle. Perfect thing! It should be smeared and rubbed in by massaging moves, and left for 15 minutes.

    After you have done little in-home spa, let’s get right to painting nails. But before this for nail polish to underline better after oil you need to remove fat from nails. I do that by slightly moistening napkin with perfumes (they consist alcohol, which removes this fat) or you may buy a special degreasing agent.

As evidence here you have the photo of my manicure in 4 days after drawing. It seems to look rather well.
