Crazy for Coral

After recently attending a sneak preview of Nordstrom's spring/summer beauty trends, one thing's for sure - coral is the color of the moment. From glosses to nail polishes, the pinky/orangey/peachy shade is shaking things up on makeup shelves this season.


Kerry Washington wearing a beautiful array of coral shades.


At first, I was apprehensive about trying the salmony shade, but soon realized that the color complemented my skin-tone. However, I probably wouldn't wear this hue on my lips, but for cheeks and nails I'm definitely going to give this beauty trend a try!

I'm not a big fan of coral - it always seemed to chalky/pinky to me. If that made sense...

I do like the blouse Kerry has on as well as the OPI nail polish, so maybe if I can find some colors with more orange than pink I'll give it a shot this season.

I love coral clothes. They look great with my skintone. I guess I better pick some new nail colors too, so I can stay on trend. Thanks for keeping me current!
