Golden Oldie Thursday (GOT) Polish Challenge - Coral

While scrolling through all the beautiful pictures on Instagram I noticed someone mentioning a GOT Polish Challenge (can't remember on whose IG account I've seen this), which means Golden Oldie Thursday Polish Challenge. Hmmmm, interesting, what does it mean????

After a few clicks I found out this is a weekly nailart challenge in wich you are supposed to use your 'golden oldies' (polishes over a year old, preferably worn before). Well HELLO, have you seen my helmer? Drawers full of polishes that fit this 'golden oldie' label! 
Only trouble is... I suck at nailart, big time.
But I found out, it doesn't have to be very complicated, it is all for fun and to get to wear those old polishes again (or dust off the old untrieds).
Sooooooooo here is my first contribution to the Golden Oldie Thursday Polish Challenge

April 10th - Coral

Coral. Hmmm, I used Wikipedia to help me find a coral polish from my stash, because I didn't know exactly which of my polishes are officially called coral. 
My good old Herôme - Marrakech (from 2011) matched what wiki says is the color coral.

My 'elaborate' nailart (winkwink) is done by placing glitter and stars on some nails.
Because Wiki also said that the complementary color of coral is teal, I decided to use teal as the accent color in this mani.


So I really like this challenge, it's only once a week and it does not have difficult themes like: 'paint a Van Gogh' on your nails. They just give you a color or a theme and you can do anything you like with that as long as your polish is over a year old. 

Want to know what is coming in the next weeks? Check out this picture:
The GOT Polish Challenge came from the creative mind of Debbie 'the Crumpet': http://www.the-crumpet.com/2014/01/got-polish-new-challenge-for-2014.html
