Crazy for Coral!

This season I have been drawn to all the beautiful shades of coral, peaches and and soft apricots. This is highly unusual since I've always been drawn to pinks and roses and berries, feeling that they best set off my naturally pale coloring.

A girl can change her mind...right?

I have to try one of the Ulta stores. I have never been in one but I would make the trip if it meant I could keep nail polish on longer than one day!! I LOVE these colors but was always afraid of peach because of my freckles! lol! Love the Chico's top, too!

XO,

Jane, I'll bet your freckles would be set off nicely with the right colors! There's so many in that range~apricots, corals etc. I used to limit those bright orangey colors to my toes but now I work with them/experiment with them. For instance, the Revlon Orange Flip is ORANGE! I toned it down by first putting a lip gloss on my lips so they didn't get a full saturation of the color and then I blotted lightly & put a more subtle Coral Glow (Maybelline) gloss over it. And later got a compliment on the lip color! (to be honest, up until then, I wasn't feeling totally confident wearing it. Ya never know!)
