That I'm not very good at nail art is no secret. I just don't have the finesse required to work with fast drying liquids on multiple tiny curved canvases with equipment so tiny that looks like it was designed to operate on bacteria.
Hence when I saw this nail art on Corallista, I knew instantly that this would be my project for Sunday Evening, for the following reasons:
1. It does not require any special equipment like dotters, forceps, blades etc
2. It is a look designed to be messy.
3. I had the colors already sitting on my table.
4. I had nothing better to do this weekend.
I used Maybelline Colorama Coral Chic as the base color.
Costs Rs. 100/-
I used 3 coats of this. This is a beautiful glossy warm coral color, but it is not very pigmented. Luckily it layers well, dries quickly, and the color builds up by the 3rd coat.
And for the gold tips, Faces Splash #22 All that Glitter.
Costs Rs. 90/-
Packed with a ton of golden shimmer, it also layers well & dries down without feeling heavy or goopy.
I skipped the awesome idea of sprinkling gold dust over the gold top coat when wet for added oomph, because I wasn't sure it would be appreciated in my office. Plus I was scared that I would mess up things. I guess this is the office version.

I am actually rather pleased at how easy this is, and how awesome it looks! Thank you Ankita! This is really one of the easiest & best looking nail art that I have attempted in a long time!
