NOTW: Coral Reef

Here's another summer-inspired manicure! This time, I opted for my favourite summer colour... Coral! It really brightens up my day and lifts my mood, just like summer days do!  I also some gold and glittery coral to create and accentuate the floral design and this is the end result:

Like it? Here's a step by step guide how you can do it yourselves!

1.  Prep your nails with a clear base coat and apply two coats of a coral polish of your choice.  I used one by Eugene Perma.  Make sure you leave the nail polish to dry thoroughly between applications.

2. With a striper brush and a gold nail polish (I used Golden Rose Prestige no.71), start drawing the petals of the flowers and then drag two lines from between each petal.  You should end up with something similar to the picture.  I did the flower designs on both ring fingers and thumbs.

3. By means of a medium sized dotting tool and the same gold polish, place some dots on the other half of the nail.

4. When the flowers have dried, use a glittery coral nail polish (here I have used Maybelline Wet Shine Diamonds Into the Sunset) to fill in the petals with some colour.

5. Finish off with a clear glossy top coat and you're done!
