Lookie! I'm dipping my toes back into Goldie Oldies Thursday! This week's prompt is Coral, and I took that as an opportunity to give tribute to both the color and the sea creature with my nail art.
This look was fairly fun and easy and only required four polishes.
|L-R: elf Skinny Jeans, Rimmel Too Cool to Tango, Pure Ice Superstar!, elf Fire Coral|
I then created the sponge gradient using Too Cool to Tango and Skinny Jeans on all but my ring finger. This took about two coats to get it nice and blended. My ring finger has two coats of Fire Coral, which is a gorgeous deep red-toned coral.
Originally I tried to stamp the quasi-coral pattern from BM313, but Fire Coral wasn't quite opaque enough to stamp well over the blue, so I essentially laid the stamp down as a guide and then went back in with my detail brush to deepen and darken the pattern. In hindsight, this probably worked out better for me because the "imperfections" make each nail just a little bit different - just like real coral.
All in all, I kind of like the look of doing the nail art on all my nails and then having the "accent" nail be straight-up polish, but I'm aware of my own weirdness. What do you think?
Be sure to check out the other GOT Polish looks below, and who knows? Maybe I'll have another GOT post for you next week too. Have a great weekend!
