Color Challenge #1 – Coral and Purple

I really love reading beauty articles, sometimes I even read certain ones more than once even if I’m not going to use any of the tips or techniques. I recently found an article that had a lot of great tips and images, one being this image for mani & pedi color pairings that I spoke of in my last post.

I took this more as pairing these colors in nail art  than doing one color on your fingers and one on your toes. So I’ve decided to do each of these and blog about my pairings. I’m doing them in order, so without further ado, here is coral and purple.

For this mani I started with two coats of Zoya Maya and then top coated it. I used ric rac vinyl nail stencils from Vinyl It Up and painted Zoya Serenity over top then top coated again. I still haven’t quite gotten the hang of vinyls yet but I think they came out alright. I do like this color combo and I love how squishy it looks with the more sheer Maya underneath.

I’m already having a lot of fun with these manis and at the time of this post I have the next few already done and photographed. I would love to see your color pairings too! You can post your pictures of coral/purple manis directly on my link for this blog post on my facebook page so everybody can see and get ideas of their own. Look out for my teal & silver mani on Monday, I’m so excited about that one!
