Happy Coral Pink Nails with SpaRitual

I decided I needed a happy, bright-ish nail polish shade on my nails to combat the grey dreariness of the January weather here in Michigan.  So, I went through my polish collection and found "Miss World" by SpaRitual.


Isn't it a happy coral pink?



The sticker says it's a shimmer, but I can only detect the very finest gold shimmer in the bottle.  On the nails it looks like a cream.



I think I bought this last spring (or maybe even the year before).  It seems like a "spring" color, doesn't it?  Although, clearly it works as a winter shade, too.  Which makes me wonder: why do some colors lend themselves to certain seasons?  Or are we just following what designers and cosmetics companies are telling us what to wear?  (Vulcan Butterfly did a post on wearing coral colors in the winter just last week, so I was already thinking about this phenomenon.  I think I may have been subliminally inspired by her to get out a coral shade versus a pink or purple...)

So, what's on your nails right now?

    This color makes me think of tropical places. That's where I'd like to be right now!

  3. This is so pretty! I just painted my nails with a coral color too! I haven't been in the mood for dark colors this winter.

  4. I have to be honest and say I haven't broken out any of my bright colours yet...I suppose I've been brainwashed by the industry to "wait" until that magical day when the seasons "change" lol. :-) I did sport some bright peach lipstick the other day though.

  5. I totally agree. I do like deep colors in the fall in preparation for dark days, but mid-way through the winter, it's time for some bright colors.

  7. I wore some dark nail colors in the fall, but have been wearing lots of metallics and brights this winter. They feel right this year!

  8. I don't think of following trends as being "brainwashed", just fashionable! Actually, bright colors seem to be having a moment this winter. Maybelline's Rebel Bloom lipstick collection is all brights and pastels, and they debuted it in early January. I did buy "Blushing Bud" but I kind of plan on wearing it more in the spring, which I guess is silly. :)
