You know there was the "no makeup makeup" trend, where the products were used to discreetly correct, emphasize or enhance a look without giving the impression of wearing makeup. Well, Zoya uses a similar concept with its new Naked manicure system.

If your nails are brittle, suffer from gel damage, yellow discoloration, ridges or nail polish discoloration this might interest you. If your nails are healthy but you like a natural look, nude nails or clear polish, this might interest you as well. "No polish polish" or how to make your nails look absolutely flawless as if they weren't polished at all! I show you in pics how to transform your bare nails into Perfect Zoya Naked Manicure.
The complete Zoya Naked Manicure system consists in 9 pieces: 1 basecoat, 6 perfectors, 1 satin seal and 1 glossy seal, each cointaining 15ml,  I got the Mini Professional Kit, which includes mini versions (7.5 ml) of all 9 polishes!

How does Naked Manicure Work?

Therapeutic benefits are delivered through a meticulous blend of vitamins, proteins, and botanicals carefully infused in the Naked Manicure Treatments and perfectors that help improve the condition and appearance of the nail.

The satin seal is a satin finsh topcoat that gives natural finish and protects the final manicure. Ideal for gentlemen or anyone who does not prefer glossy finish.If your nails have damage from gels, you can hide this damage by applying a coat of Satin Seal beneath your regular nail polish to fill in ridges and cracks.
Glossy seal, is a glossy topcoat that protects your manicure.

Perfectors: Pink, Lavender and Buff
Pink perfector is used to brighten. Lavender is used to cool and correct yellow discoloration. Buff is used to warm.
Perfectors: Nude, Mauve, White tip
Nude perfector is used to soften, Mauve to deepen, and white tip to perfect the free edge.

All perfectors are very sheer and can be layered on to match the colour of any nail plate! When layering be careful to start with the strongest colour first.
Let's see how this works on me! Pictures are big, so do not hesitate to click to enlarge and see the details. But WARNING! there are bare nails pictures below, LOL

So this is how my nails look totally bare, eeeek! Gosh, there is yellow discoloration, mostly due to using so much nail polish and acetone products. It seems I do need a bit of help from Naked Manicure System.

The first step is to apply the (wonderful) naked base. Things get instantly better, right.

Then I correct yellow discoloration with the Lavender Perfector. See the difference already?

I could stop there, but I have the impression my natural colour for the nail plates is a tad warmer, so I go and apply a coat of Buff, and the result is lovely! Yep, thumbs up for layering!!

Finally I apply the white tip perfector and the Satin Seal, which blends and blur the whole giving such a natural look!

Here is the comparison, please tell me I am not the only one who actually sees the improvement!
