Glazed donut nails, lip gloss nails, naked nails—no matter what you call them, natural-looking shades are clearly on trend. Help your clients achieve the look with these tips from your nail pro peers. "Clip dead cuticles away and ensure the polish or acrylic being used is sheer. If you're using polish, apply one or two thin coats. If you're using acrylic, a smooth application is necessary for the perfect outcome." —Sequoyah Matoaka, owner of Beautifully Blessed Beauty Bar "Finish the nail set with a quality ultra-shine topcoat and use cuticle oil to nish the set. Rub the oil in and always advise your clients on the importance of using cuticle oil daily." —Matoaka "Almost all my enhancement clients have been wearing 'bare' nails for more than 25 years. I achieve this look by applying a custom-blended hard gel as a natural nail overlay, allowing my clients to grow into their ideal length." —Jaime Schrabeck, owner of Precision Nails "Choose a sheer or semi-sheer shade. If you have a nude shade that you love, mix it with a topcoat to create your own sheer version to achieve the desired look." —Lia Smith, OPI North America Education Manager N ot a m e m b e r ?
