crazy about coral: spring nail polish colors

OPI conga-line coral south beach collection

I’ve been doing a good job staying on top of beauty resolution number three these past few months. While I was in New York last month, Caro and I got coral manicures (as seen in this previous brunch post), and I’ve been hooked on the happy color since then. Unfortunately, at the New York salon, the bottle of coral OPI nail polish I chose didn’t have the sticker with the name on it. With a little sleuthing, though, I’ve found what I am 99.9 percent sure is the pretty coral color I had on my nails just a few weeks ago.

With spring just around the corner, what better way to brighten up your day (besides daylight savings time!) than with super-slick nails in a festive, citrus color? Here are two of my favorite coral colors from some of my favorite nail polish brands.

    I loove OPI Cajun Shrimp. Actually wearing it now!

    • Oooh, good recommendation Meaghan. Very pretty color!

  • I always have a tough time with nail polish because my skin is so fair. I tend to opt for very dark colors year-round, which isn’t very appropriate when it’s spring or summer. I just never think lighter colors look as nice. But this seems like a happy medium; not too pale to make my skin look washed out, but definitely not a dark hue either. I love anything red- or purple-toned, and this fits that bill — AND it’s absolutely gorgeous for spring. Great suggestion!

    Also: Love hearing about all of your NYC adventures! More, please.

  • I love seeing your dark-colored nail polish choices, Megan! I love the contrast with your pretty skin. I bet we could find a pretty pink or nude that would be kinda girly on your tough-girl nails :) Maybe we need to have a nail-painting party soon! xx

    Although it’s not the nicest of brands, Wet N Wild’s “Blaze” is gorgeous. I’d like to find a similar shade of coral with a higher quality brand.

    • I’ll have to check that out. Thanks for the idea, Jen! :)
