Celebrating the Coral

Coral has been the in color for this year. Personally, I think the trend will still catch on next year. Speaking of which, Happy new Year everyone! 

Surprisingly, when I monitor my site referrals, lots of searches for "Coral Lips" come up. I guess girls are really interested to pull this color off. 

Coral is an exciting and energetic color. No wonder it  has become a favorite for a statement gesture. Coral-anything- nails, lips, dress, bag, shoes- is sure to pop and get the attention you deserve. Here are some of the coral things I own this year. Go check your closet, you may have gotten one (or more) too!

1) Coral Crack Nail color

I got this baby from a beauty expo in KLCC for RM 10. You can get a better quality one from OPI or the like. Crack technology is the new fashionable trend in the nail industry and the coral shade is to-die-for.

Don't you just love the color? It is a deep coral tone and  you can lighten it by putting white base underneath or for statement nails, layer black or purple at the bottom.

Just a fun wall art I found at IKEA. Nothing coral-lated. It's only $28 and you can put up your favorite pictures on and change them up when you're bored.

2) Coral Lips: Peaches and Cream

This lip color is by Sleek Makeup, called Peaches and Cream. Got it in London for 3 pounds. It has a very milky coral color and the texture is very creamy (need lipgloss on top).

Me and Peaches and Cream. Must bring it for touch-up as it has a very short life span on my lips. 

3) Coral dress

I got this Coral dress from Cotton on. It has a very summery feel to it and so comfortable to move in. Perfect with wedges and a big brown bag.

4) Coral Bag

This gold-chained faux leather coral clutch/shoulder bag is a bargain from Primark. I usually wear it on a night out with a black dress.

5) Coral Headband
I am crazy about these headband from HnM. I like the gold chain details and it is super goddess-y and boho at the same time. 

With my hair up, this band complements the bouffant hair style. I don't like to tease my hair too much, though. So a simple uplift using some hairspray will do.

6) Coral Wedges

These poppers from Vinnci look real good with blue skinny jeans. Love em. Quite comfortable for a long walk during the weekend window shopping.

So that's about it. Everything Coral that I own from head to toe: headband, dress,  nails, lipstick, clutch and bag. Of course I don't recommend wearing them all at once. A healthy dose of coral can always brighten up your day with no effort. What is something coral that you own? Do tell!!!
