Coral can be a bit of a difficult color for me. Sometimes it had enough pink for me to think it looked pretty, but the orange tones in it would scare me off, as I just didn't like orange with my skin tone - too pasty to pull that off, I thought. And while I don't really care about that anymore, my preferences still lie elsewhere.
This shot is over a year old, however, the length of my nails, funny enough, is just about the same as right now. As the polish looks a bit jelly-ish I would say you'd need two to three coats to get this result, plus top coat.
