Au Naturel nails

Hey Beauties!

I've been researching nail and makeup trends for spring and summer 2014. In the nails section I've seen a lot of au naturel nail trends and I have to say, I like it. My nails have been horrible lately and I had to shorten them quite a bit. In order to give them a little break from all the crazy colors, I decided to share with you how I tried to recreate this au naturel trend, my way. 


I could start by giving my nails a nice bath, but since I did that one manicure before, I skipped it. Next is of course creating the shape of nails with a little help of nail file. I like mine to be straight, but rounded on the edges. 


Before applying any nail polish, I like to take nail polish remover and go over my nails in order to clean any sort of grease. I find that doing this step helps me to prolong the wear of my nail polish.


This is a really fun step. I used Alessandro Pro White Effect Nail Polish, which is a little blue toned. That neutralizes the yellowness of the nails, which can be the result of too much usage of nail polishes. I know my nails are pretty yellow most times. Applying this nail polish makes them instantly white. Like a teeth whitener, this is nail whitener. See the difference below.




After that I decided to apply a very light nude nail polish. I put on two coats. The Revlon nail polish in 005 Sheer Blush is extremely fair color, almost a bit transparent with just a little flush of nude yellowish color. 



Finished with Essie Good to Go top coat and done!


Do you ever wear your nails au naturel?

  1. Ti fotki z rožico sta res lepi. :)
    Nude nohte nosim res zelo zelo redko, pa če jih že, samo kot podlago za nail art. Obožujem barve, what can I say. :P

    1. Ja, res super lak za beljenje. Malo spremembe je vedno fajn, sploh če si dolgo navajen na nekaj:)

  6. No joke these look like gel nails, super pretty. I used to wear nail polish religiously but then would never be without as my nails where turning yellow underneath. After giving them a breather for around two weeks they are now in a noticeably better condition and I happy to wear them naked.
