Spotlight On: Mode Cosmetics #10326 Coral

Firstly, please read my post Introducing.... Mode Cosmetics Nail Enamel! if you have not done so already, as it contains general information about this brand of nail enamel.

Coral is part of the current Mode Cosmetics collection and is an attractive pink-orange creme shade. I'm tempted to call it watermelon, but I think it has a little too much orange in it to be a correct description! I have to be honest here ladies, this shade is very difficult to work with, as it is very thin and runny. I found that I needed 4 coats to achieve the desired opacity. However, having said that, if you have the patience for it, the end result is stunning! I know it won't be the last time I wear it!

Nail art: Allow nail enamel to dry before applying stripper polish. I used L.A. Colors Art Deco Nail Art Lacquer to achieve this look. I began with random strokes in all directions with NA917 Yellow, once it had dried, I added a few strokes in NA927 Poppin' Pink, and once that had dried added a further stroke or two with Yellow, to enhance the layered look.

I will be listing a bottle of this shade on OZtion for any Australian ladies interested in owning one! I will also be offering it for trade on MakeupAlley in the near future for anyone, anywhere! For ladies outside of Australia who would like to buy a bottle, please email me and I will happily list one on eBay for you. I will also be selling the Art Deco Nail Art Lacquer colours used for anyone interested in replicating my nails! If you have tried these links and Coral, Yellow or Poppin' Pink are not available on any of these sites, please email me, and I will endeavour to source them for you.
