It’s official: Pantone’s Color of the Year is Living Coral, “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.”

We’re swooning!

Encouraging lighthearted activity, Living Coral is a playful, yet sophisticated shade of pink. Its warmth is the perfect pick-me-up for those dreary, cold days. Which is pretty great timing, since we’re in the thick of winter here in Ohio!

While beautiful and feminine in nature, coral is lovely on its own, but even better with other colors and patterns. So whether you’re classic, bold, fun-loving or a total wild card, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite coral looks you just have to try for 2019. Take a look...

5 Coral Nails To Try In 2019

Chic, on-trend, edgy and cool—check out our list of amazing Living Coral hues! Trust us, you’ll turn heads with these not-so-basic nail ideas.

1. Rose Gold Tone Accents // @_n.jane

This design makes the top of our list for obvious reasons. Who could resist those sparkling rose gold tones against that bright, cheerful hue? It’s no denying coral and rose gold were practically made for each other, but the added glimmer seals the deal.

2. Coral Splash // @vinalove10

For all you wild cards out there, this one’s for you! These nails make coral look like a work of art. With a touch of gold shine and what looks like paint brush strokes of pink, we can’t get enough of this look.

3. Classic Color, Bold Tips // @haliecakess

If you’re a classic polish kinda gal looking to try something new, then we have the perfect idea just for you. It’s no doubt a nude hue is gorgeous on its own, but a few bold coral tips add a necessary pop you never knew you needed!

4. Let’s Talk Texture // @beautybyshantele

Shimmer and shine, all at the same time! Try pairing coral with different shades of pink, then add a different texture or two to boot. Some colorful confetti takes your pretty-in-pink nails to the next level of glam.

5. Homage To Ombre //

We saved the best for last. This ombre look is vibrant enough to pick your spirits up, yet classic and mellow for those cooler colored months. This trend-right style is bold, yet totally chic. In other words, you can’t go wrong!
