So here are my "Naked" nails. I have wanted this palette FOREVER! At $50 the price kept me back as well as the fact that I have purchased things that have similar colors. But after going to the mall maybe 5 or 6 times now drooling over it, I just splurged. I love the look of this palette. The velvety matte brown and the sleek gold lines shining through. So I tried to recreate an abstract look on my nails using Jordana's - Cabaret, Sally Hansen's Golden and Essie's - Matte About You top coat. This was a hard manicure!! The matte top coat is unforgiving! I started with a coat of the Golden and a quick dry top coat. Then I used striping tape from KKCenterHK to place randomly on my nail. Next I applied the Cabaret and let it sit just a couple of minute before I went over it with the Matte About You. The tricky part was since the matte top coat dried so quickly I have to be fast at removing the striping tape. And the tape can be a little sticky. I wound up having to do a couple of nails over but overall a little bit messy but I really liked it. It was my first time using the matte top coat in this way so, trial and error. But I get the gist of it. Since I showed the outside of the palette I might as well show you the inside. PRETTY right?! I might have similar colors already but they do not compare to the vibrancy of these colors. They are so smooth to apply as well. There is a Naked Palette second edition that came out a bit ago but I like this one better. In my opinion this one has a better color range. You can do a mean smokey eye with Naked 1 but with Naked 2 the darkest color other than the black is a medium plum you would really have to pile on to get it deep shade.
