To go with the ombre, gradient colour combo, I have picked a few of the corals in my nail polish stash to swatch and wear one-next-to-another. Finishing off with a yellow little pinkie.
List of the 5 shades:
Thumb - OPI, I51 Lunch at the Delhi (obviously from the India collection!)
Index - Nails Inc, Blandford Street
Middle - Deborah Lippmann, Girls Just Want to Have Fun
Ring - Revlon, 440 Siren
Little Pinkie - Essence, 23 Sundancer
OPI Lunch at the Delhi is a medium/dark pink coral. Quite red. Very warm.
Nails Inc Blandford Street is similar to Lunch at Delhi in terms of darkness/brightness, but there isn't a pink tone. Just orange-coral.
Deborah Lippmann Girls Just Want to Have Fun is a pinkish coral like Lunch at the Delhi, but a little lighter than both the India colour and Nails Inc's.
Revlon Siren is not very coral. In fact I think it is a good bright orange.
Essence Sundancer is a yellow tending towards the egg yolk side. Actually it reminds me of a crayon colour. (Random~)
Other things I used are:
Base - OPI Nail Envy Original
Top - Essie good to go *mixed with equal part of Seche Vite
Quick Dry - Orly Flash Dry Quick-Dry Shine Drops
One last shot with 5 colours on my nails next to one another. It was taken by my iPad camera and under artificial lighting. :)

2. I am planning to do a special blogging theme for September. Something to do with 'Swatching', perhaps? Any idea on how to name it?
