Collecting Colour : February is Coral [UPDATED!]


Ahhh, coral!  You're not quite pink and not quite orange.  You're happy and bright but kind of gauche and a little bit trashy too.  I love you on my nails and my wrists.  You make me think of flashy gold baubles, early 90s excess, Kath and Kim and the Gold Coast.  I'm not sure why I'm mildly obsessed with you, perhaps it's the way you so successfully walk the fine line between lady and vamp (or maybe tramp?).


This is my second attempt at collecting some coral (hence the updated post) and I'm much happier with it this time around.  If you're interested, here's the original collection I did:


ps. I know 'coral' was / will be a bit of a challenge for some of you (it was even tricky for me, and it's one of my favourite colours).  Sorry.  It will get easier from here, I mean next month is green - should be seriously easy, right?

Every month through 2012 I'll be 'collecting colour', and you can join in too!  Link up below, and/or add your photo to the Flickr group here.  And go here to get all the information you need.

  2. I'm struggling a little, too, but I know I've got more coral than I've found. Also, I'm so glad you didn't pick a traditional Valentine color - so, so glad!

  6. I want to participate but coral is a tricky one! I don't know if I have a spec of it in my house. I have pink and peach (not much though) but the two have never gathered together in any form and crossed my threshold. I may have to get extra creative... or wait until green. Wonderful collection (both of them)!!
