#ManiMonday: Coral & Gold Manicure


I found the inspiration for this manicure on Pinterest awhile ago, and had the picture saved for future reference.  I did some digging to find out what colors were used in the original manicure, and was happy to find out they were drugstore polishes with affordable pricing. The original manicure was from NailBlog.Net and used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in 'Coral Reef' & 'Golden-I.'



The coral color I used is a no-name color from Cosmetic Arts, a nail polish band that can be found at Ross for $.99-$1.99.  They are a quality polish for the price, I recommend picking some up!


The gold tips are Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 'Golden-I', available at all drug and grocery stores for $1.99.


I am loving this manicure! It's nautical in a way, isn't it? Although it's stunning in coral & gold, this manicure could be done in any color combination.  You could also apply the tips to cover tipwear from your original manicure.
