Get the Look- Naked Nails

Nail art is finally a thing of the past. No longer do we care whether our fingers are flowers, flags or fruit; For the time being at least, we have better things to do. 

What started as a statement soon became a phenomenon; but with every craze, there’s the counter phase. There’s the moment when we realise actually no, nail art is a bit of a pain in the arse. Whether you’ve splodged your spots one too many times, or you’ve run out of ideas on how to recreate a bloody daisy; it’s finally time to hang up your tool kit and clean up for Spring.

The naked nail has been gaining momentum since this year’s Oscars- where Margot Robbie wisely let her YSL do the talking-  and has appeared on the hands of all of our Blush crushes in the past week alone; and is the easiest way to add a little polish.

Get the Look:

A good top coat is crucial for adding sheen and delaying that inevitable first chip. Nail-care queen Sally Hansen’s, Insta-Dri Top Coat, is a dream and dries nails in 30 seconds; Whilst it’s ideal for speeding up drying time- particularly for dark nail colours -this Spring we’ll be wearing ours on its own.
