How did naked nail girl summer come about? TikToker @sydneyv.nichols stitched an Alix Earle video to declare the new summer trend. “It is naked nail girl summer,” she said. “Alix Earle, Xandra, Paige Lorenze — I’ve seen a ton of people, Tinx, rocking naked nails.”
Earle enthusiastically commented on the video twice, saying “YES” and “IVE been saying this.” Lorenze also commented, “Yeeesssss and just press on’s for occasions,” and Tinx added on a “Yessss” in approval.
There are many nail strengtheners on Amazon to help your natural, naked nails live their best lives this summer, but none seem to have nearly has many reviews at this Onyx Professional Hard as Hoof cream. Yes, cream, not clear polish! When we say naked nails, we mean it!

For over 25 years, this fan-favorite has been repairing damage, conditioning cuticles and letting nails grow out long and strong!
You need to take the all-around approach to heal your nails, rather than just targeting the hard part of your nail.

Just massage into nail beds, cuticles and underside of nails three times a day or as often as needed.
P.S. If you’re not into naked nails, this cream is still worth your time. It can be used in conjunction with polish!
