Tag: coral nail polish
I was asked about my orange/coral/peach nail polishes, so I thought I’d write about those.
But I have to warn you that I (and this is shocker for a lot of people, I understand) don’t really like such shades. I have managed to gather six and some of them are definitely no longer available. But this will give you an idea, I guess.
This post also made me look at my old nail polish features and realize that my photos/ manicure techniques have improved a lot, thank goodness.
Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Alarm
This is technically a red with a coral twist but I thought I’d include it anyway, as it is my favourite and I am so happy I got it. It’s perfect for summer time and I use it a lot, as you can see. See it on the nails.
Inglot Nail Enamel in 949
Bright true orange with a hint of very delicate shimmer that is visible in the direct sunlight. This is like summer in a bottle.
Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in 36 Crushed
I have got this one
Spring is here, so is the sunshine! And with such weather girls usually want to add some fresh and bright colours to their face. And although I personally love cool tones more (on myself), corals and peaches are the in favour of most people.
In fact, even I am wearing some of those shades today. But nothing to neon and in-your-face, so it will suit most people.
To be precise: Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in #5, a gorgeous peach with golden shimmer on my eyes! Yes, really, I think it looks stunning on the eyes but you could wear it on the cheek and lips, too. It’s such a universal product.
And Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 05 Candy Shimmer which gives just the right amount of colour and brings some “life” to the face.
I am using a mix of blushers today but you could go for Jouer Cosmetics Cheek & Lip Tint in Petal to keep up with the whole theme.
It is fun experimenting with
I was wearing Shellac for 20 days and I removed it only because my nails were growing, everything else looked perfect. And yesterday I’ve applied a new nail polish – Essence What Do U Think (#22) which is perfect for spring in my opinion.
I really like this pastel coral but it is kind of strange to see that my nails have a different colour after such a long time of being red.
The application is a bit streaky but looks nice with 2 coats as you can see from the photo above.
So this is the 4th Maybelline nail polish that I got. It is called Punky Orange and it is a beautiful pastel coral shade which looks amazing in a bottle.
But to get this shade on the nails – you’d need at least 3 layers and yet I can’t say that it’s opaque. The colour is beautiful but I don’t like to have so many coats of nail polish on my nails.
