April Fools! Except, I didn't fool you - I am naked - well, I'm wearing a Zoya Naked Manicure today!
Maybe you own a lipstick that is 'My Lips But Better" and you have a favorite foundation or BB/CC Cream that gives you a "My Skin But Better" look. With Zoya's Naked Manicure, you can have the same, "My Nails But Better" look!
I bought the cringe-worthy named "Women's Nail Perfecting Kit." I'm glad they have a kit for men that acknowledges that nail care isn't just for women... but I wish they didn't feel the need to use gender-normative rules at all. Anyway, in this kit, there are 4 bottles - a base coat, a peach nail perfector, a white tip, and a satin top coat.
Just like a peach concealer under your eyes can change the look of eye baggage, so, too, can the peach perfector! Zoya has other colors available, depending on your nail needs, but I love this one. It makes my nail beds look healthy.
The white tip can take a little practice, but if you're used to doing your own French manicures, this is the same idea, but easier. Because it's not a stark white, there is more room for error. I used a couple of coats because I wanted to cover up more staining.
The satin topcoat gives the nails a natural finish. They also have a glossy topcoat, if you want a little shine.
What do you think about the "Mine, but better" trend, and would you apply it to your nails?
