BEYOND NUDE

Naturally Nude Nails

A chic mani trend for Spring 2018: semi-matte manicures! At the Coach Spring/Summer ‘18 runway show, the theme for nails is one step beyond nude: raw, simple yet manicured and naturally beautiful. Lead nail artist Naomi Yasuda created simple, semi-matte chic nails using Inglot products, with an emphasis on unique treatments that fuse polish and care. The focus was on the health of the nail, showcasing its raw, natural beauty while using a unique ridge-filling treatment to create an even surface. To create the look, Yasuda used the below products step-by-step:

Step 1: To start off the manicure, Naomi used Inglot pH Cuticle Remover. “This is my favorite and one of the best! It softens hard cuticles and exfoliates loose skin on the nails. We then gently push and trim the cuticle to give the nail a nice clean look,” said Yasuda.

Step 2: Nails were then filed and buffed with Inglot Nail File 180/240 Blue and Inglot Nail Buffer to create a soft, smooth finish.

Step 3: Lastly, Inglot Ridge Filler was applied to create a semi-matte finish and make the nail healthier and smoother, filling in any damage or misshapen surfaces to the nails. The treatment, unique to Inglot, evens the nail plate and conditions with algae extract. “This is especially great for models during busy show seasons,” said Yasuda. “The treatment will strengthen the nails for their next show, too.”
