No difference at all. Naked is more common in the US than nude.

"Nude" is often used if there is an artistic connotation, such as a painting of a "nude" woman, or in the case of a nude beach. "Naked" has more of a general connotation and is more commonly used. However, the word "nudity" is more commonly used as a noun than "nakedness" is, at least in the US.

Lemmie tell you what ive heard.Ive heard ppl using sentences like :

" I saw her nude at the beach "
( i guess this word is used when someone means to be without clothes in
front of so many ppl )

Another one , that i heard , is :

" She got herself naked in the bathroom" ( obviously :P )
( and this one is meant to be used when someone is clothless in a room or when he or shes alone.)

Phew...!!! i hope it works out !!
I am not sure whether it makes any sense or not !!
