Peach & Purple Nails Alternating Colors Manicure

coral and purple nails - alternating colors manicure

After creating this manicure the other day, it occurred to me that I may have seen a similar technique on Consider Me Lovely’s Instagram feed. It wasn’t until a day after I painted my nails though that I realized I may have seen it elsewhere, though I’m still not completely sure. That’s how inspiration works I suppose 😉 But to get on with it, I really love this manicure. Both colors are equally as vivid {as are my blue toes} and I love looking down at them while I’m working at my desk… or well, doing anything really. This peach may be more of a coral but it borderlines on neon once applied & has a smidge of shimmer… not so much of an accent nail manicure but just as fun.

There’s no real tutorial with this manicure except that you paint your thumb, middle, & ring fingers in one color then your pinky & pointer with the other, and alternate it on the other hand. It’s simple, but effective without actually needing to add any nail art, design, or glitter. A quiet boldness I suppose.
