I Love This Naked Manicure Kit

My beauty mantra: keep it simple. I love a good no-makeup makeup‘ routine and a no-fuss air dry. One of my other tried-and-true favorite beauty rituals is a clean buffed manicure. Enter: the Zoya Naked Manicure kit

Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links. I may earn a small commission if you make a purchase from these links.

For around the price of one professional manicure, this perfecting kit has everything you need to get lots of your-nails-but-better DIY manis at home. It treats, improves discoloration, and protects in five minutes, leaving your nails with a natural satin buff finish that lasts. Over time and repeated use, the Zoya Naked Manicure kit improves nails’ strength, condition and flexibility. It’s especially great if you need a rehab from acrylics or gel manicures.

I bought my first kit in a local salon in 2015, and over the years, I’ve lost count of how many times I repurchased. It’s a staple that I always want to have on-hand. (Pun intended.) Now you can find it on Amazon!

How To Do A Naked Manicure

First, I clean my nails with an acetone nail polish remover.

Second, I apply this instant cuticle remover — a longtime drustore fave — and let it sit for about 30 seconds. Then I use a cuticle pusher to gently clean up my cuticles.

Then I paint on the 3 step Zoya Naked Manicure kit staples like I would any other DIY mani: start with a light coat of the naked base coat; apply 2 thin coats of the nude perfector lacquer, and finish with the satin seal top coat. The perfector lacquer is to your nails as foundation is to your face: it improves discoloration, evens things out, and adds a little glow.

Extra Credit

My hands take a beating at the flower shop, but my ‘naked’ manicures look fresh for at least 7-10 days. For extra credit for my hands and cuticles, I keep this all-natural Shea Moisture hand and body scrub by the bathroom sink and give my paws a good scrub when I get home from work each day. I also stash tubes of hand lotion everywhere — in my handbag, car, desk drawer, and nightstand — and try to remember to apply it throughout the day. My top hydrating picks are the Necessaire hand cream, Aesop hand balm or any of the FarmHouse shea butter creams

    I’ve been using this for years and recommend it to everyone. I can’t paint my nails at home so it’s the only DIY I’ll use.

    Your nails look great. I had a natural manicure the other day at my favourite spa because I’d had nail damage after a bad gellish removal. It looked so pretty that I cannot wait to get another one.
