Hello everyone!  Today I'll be participating in my 1st link up party since starting the new blog.  Can I get a What-What?! Sorry, Cougar Town reference there, couldn't help myself. Still, I am super duper excited to be linking up to just blog's Mani-Mondays! So, today I thought I'd show you my latest color obsession. 

Coral and turquoise!

Seriously, I can't get enough of this gorgeous color combo. Several of my favorite shoes, handbags, shirts, and jewelry feature these colors so I couldn't leave my nails out now could I?

This photo is actually day 2 1/2 of my mani...and that included some yard work, laundry, and jewelry making.  Not a chip in sight! Gotta love it!

Here is what I used:

2 coats of Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro in Sunset Orange (purchased at Wal-mart with a $1.00 off coupon, making this super cheap)

2 coats of Color Club in Age of Aquarius (from a past Birchbox)

and 1 coat of NYC In a New York Color Minute Quick Dry (used as a top coat, also purchased from Wal-mart using a coupon).

This was my 1st time ever using Rimmel nail polish and I have to say it's fantastic! Especially for the price.  Same thing with the NYC top coat.  I usually don't use top coats because for whatever reason they actually make my nail color chip faster but this stuff is superb!

And there you have it, my latest color love! Thank you so much for letting me share my latest nail obsession.  I'd love to know what color combos you have been digging on lately!

And of course a BIG thanks to Heather for letting me link up to her Mani-Monday party! Can't wait to check out everyone else's latest nail obsessions...


  1. Cute! I love turquoise with coral and just about everything else! haha :)

  2. Very pretty, perfect for this time of year!

  3. You do birchbox too? I have been doing it for a few months now. Trying to decide if it's worth my money since I normally only use one or two things that I recieve each month. Do you like it?

  4. Aw, thank you so much gals! @Christy, yeah I've been getting Birchbox for about a year now. The only issues I've had so far is one month a perfume bottle broke inside so when I opened it up glass was everywhere and everything smelled like the perfume (which thankfully smelled pretty good, lol). Other than that I really like it. Some months are definitely better than others though ;)

  5. One of my favorite color combos! Thank you for linking up with Mani Monday!

  6. LOVE the coral & turquoise combo. I tried red and turquoise a few weeks ago, but this is a great twist! Thanks for the share! :)

  7. Thanks so much Heather and Emily! I love seeing all the different mani's during this link party! So much fun. And red and turquoise sounds like a pretty color combo too. I might have to try that one :)
