After yesterday's muted blues and grays I was in the mood for some color! I'd initially planned to do an assortment of colors with nude/beige, but I already did something like that, so I decided to try it with actual naked nails instead. I am loving how they turned out. It's super colorful and fun but the nail showing through keeps it from being obnoxious or looking overdone. I think they have kind of an 80s vibe, so they remind me of my childhood. Yay, nostalgia!
Unfortunately the lack of a basecoat means every ridge and flaw is pretty visible, and I feel like these could have used another coat of SV to smooth things out a little more. I'm definitely going to be incorporating naked nails into some designs in the future, but I think it's best reserved for when your nails are in perfect shape (which mine, right now, are definitely not!)
