Whilst having a rummage through the Helmer I found a polish that I wasn't sure I'd used before, or at least not for a long while. Coralicious* by Rimmel London just sort of called out to me, partly because of the awesome name but mostly because of it's glowing colour. Frustratingly the camera doesn't quite pick up the vibrance of this polish as it catches the light so you'll just have to take my word for it.
I applied a base of Coralicious* before I even decided on a nail design. This is usually a bad idea as I end up with something bizarre, so today I kept it simple. Having toyed with the idea of an aztec pattern I decided to stick with a white grid. It's a design I've done before and loved for it's simplicity and cleanness. I have to say that I don't think this was the best example of that as somehow I managed to smudge the lines with my top coat.
I just used a striping brush dipped in nail art pen juice to paint on the lines, it really is that simple. The only other tool you need for this design is a steady hand. The bright colours makes this design stand out a bit more than it has when I've done it on grey bases before, I can't decide if that's a good thing or not.
If you don't already have this polish I fully recommend adding it to your collection in time for summer. It has festivals and weddings written all over it! And you have to believe me when I tell you that it's just captivating in actual daylight. It's not a neon polish but it just seems to glow, and looks much more pinky than the reddy orange it appears in these piccies.
Rimmel you're onto a winner here!
