Recreated Manicure: Coral & Silver ft. Maybelline Color Show Nail Polishes

Hi! Easy goin' post today! I just wanted to show you this manicure that I've recreated from a photo that I've found around the web. I'm not too sure who owns it, but I think they did a greaaat job!

Does anyone know of any similar gold nail polishes to this?

I love it when cute manicures are not too hard to recreate and doesn't require a bunch of items or products or.... any skills. All I've used for today's manicure were the two nail polishes of my choice -- in which I've chose Maybelline's Color Show Nail Polishes in 'Coral Crush' and 'Pedal to the Metal'.

I've actually purchased these a while ago and I'm STILL lagging behind with the haul post. Therefore, don't be surprised if you see these two featured again in another post! I know, awkward order, hey? :P


Coral Crush is such a prettyyyyyyy coral colour! It has a creme finish. I can't wait to wear it on its own, and also put it up against my other coral nail polishes! I've been hoarding coral and blue nail colours home lately.. Eeek. How many coral and blue polishes do you need, Tram? *scratches head*

However, as for Pedal To The Metal, I don't feel as guilty. This is probably the second shimmery silver nail polish in my collection. Not bad, not bad. Let's just hope I stop hoarding from here! >_<"

I've yet to post a detailed post of these two, but both lacquers glides on really nice and smooth on the nails. Pedal to the Metal is actualy quite sheer so I've used 5 thinner coats in the following photos. It's not too much of a hassle though since it dries pretty quick. As for Coral Crush, two coats was good to go!


Such a simple and easy manicure to recreate. Seriously! I can't wait to experiment with more of these quick and easy nail designs!

My next stop will be water marble nails!!! Yeeeeeeeeeey!.



If you guys know of any similar gold nail colour to the first photo I've posted above, please leave me your suggestions in the comment section!



I actually don't have a gold nail polish of that finish yet, so I'm still looking around! I remember reading Rebecca's blog and she was also looking for a similar colour! We'd appreciate your suggestions SO much!

Thanks in advance!

  3. It looks like a lighter version of OPI's Goldeneye or Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Gilded Lily. I even tried Google image search to see if there was an original source but to no avail! Shows you the importance of watermarking your designs.

  6. I was just casually reading your blog as I normally do, and saw that my name and blog was there. I kind of fan-girled, LOL I don't know! I really enjoy your blog, didn't even think that you noticed mine! Haha! Ah! Thank you for making my day!

    I think you did such a good job at recreating it! Silver and pink is still a winning combination. That silver looks gorgeous, although 5 coats is pretty extreme! Haha.

    Thank you again!
