Nailed: The Nude Manicure

By Holly Bartter

 

It’s official, the nude manicure is the look to beat this season. Across the board, the latest runway shows saw designers send out models with fresh nails in classic neutrals. Less is more, and we can’t wait to lacquer up.

Toffey Gel Polish makes it easy to sport this trend, with a wide range of nude tones to choose from, and they are all about the girl that loves fashion but isn’t fussy. A gel manicure is the natural choice, because it lasts longer than regular polish, for a salon-perfect appearance without the time commitment.

There are a few ways you can run with the nude look, from opaque warm shades to sheer and floaty pastel pinks. For the best finish, ensure your nails are trimmed and buffed, and your cuticles hydrated – it’s like your natural nails, only better.

The Toffey 3 step process makes Pinterest-worthy nails a breeze. Start with a thin layer of their Base Coat, and follow with 30 seconds under the Toffey LED Nail Lamp. Select one of their dreamy pinks, browns or nudes and and apply as usual, then another 60 seconds under the lamp to make sure the colour lasts. You can choose to build the colour as much or as little as you like for a completely customised nail look. Finally,  the Toffey Top Coat will hold it all together, with another 90 seconds under the lamp to finish.
