I don’t own a lot of polishes I would truly call coral so I decided to go with a mani inspired by sea coral. I thought branching corals would be the easiest to use as inspiration as the patterns are really random and gave me a lot of freedom to create fun branchy shapes without worrying about it looking perfect.
I started with a dark blue glittery base as I thought it would be shimmery like the sea and then painted random coral inspired patterns over the top in a coral pink polish.
I liked the result and had fun doing something quite free and abstract but wish I had done something more interesting for the base – maybe a sponged base with a variety of shades of blue.
Anyway, now I’ve realised there’s a coral shaped colour hole in my polish collection, I’ve got a really great excuse to go out shopping and find the perfect coral polish!
