Last summer my dear friend Nathalie, one of the nicest people I have the pleasure of knowing, sent me a lovely package full of fun nail polish that I can't get in the States. One of them was Kinetics Coral Sea. It took me forever to try it, but I'm so glad that I have because it's perfect. Oh, and my cuticles are horribly dry. Forgive me.
This is a perfect coral that leans neither too pink nor too orange. In the photographs it looks a little pinker than it does in real life. It also has gold glitter particles in it, making it a little more interesting than your average coral creme. The application was good. I didn't do my nails in a well-lit room so I did three coats just to be sure that there were no bald patches. The brush was slightly moppy, but workable. I don't know anything about Kinetics as a brand, but I know that I really like this polish. I bet it would look nice on toes for flip-flop weather.
I'm so ready for spring. So ready, in fact, that I was digging through my lipstick stash the other day and I think I found my new staple spring lipstick: MAC Style Curve from the Stylishly Yours collection. Here's what it looks like swatched in horrible light (ie Cleveland nuclear winter light):

And here is what it looks like on my face:
Sorry about the INSANELY CORAL SHIRT. It's what I wear to bed sometimes. My love of coral even carries over into my sleepytimes. Looooook at how awesome this lipstick looks. FOR REAL this will be amazing for spring. I can't wait to bust it out with some all-over flower print dresses or even all black ensembles. Pretty excited.
Alright, so that's the second installment of my coral series. This coral kicks the ass of OPI Guy Meets Gal-veston. I'm glad to have finally tried it. Thank you, Nathalie! It has a happy home in my Helmer. Also, anyone have an opinion on MAC Style Curve? I think...I think I'm in love.
