I'm totally dying over the shimmery teal blue hue. It's got enough green to remind me of the grass in springtime and enough blue to bring back memories of the aquamarine waters in Hawaii.

The first coat was a bit streaky, but my coat two the polish had found its stride and applied very evenly. I've actually heard people compare this shade to China Glaze For Audrey, but that seems much more turquoise -- like the color of a Tiffany's box -- while this has more seafoam green in the base.

And for those who are interested -- I began with a coat of Chanel Protective Base Coat and finished with a coat of my all-time favorite top coat, Seche Vite. I really think this helped to lock in the glossy shine.

  1. Chanel always makes some of the nicest nail polishes. This reminds me a lot of Tiffany color theme as well, but thanks for the comparison.
