A Study in Teal

One of my favorite things about nail polish is just how many possible finishes you can put on your polish. This manicure showcases three of them!


The idea for this was taken from the lovely lady behind liloo nail art. Her manicures are always spot on, and simple enough that I feel like I can do them in under an hour! This bit of art required two polishes and two types of top coat. And tape.


I painted my teal polish (Naughty Nautical by Essie) onto my nails and added shiny top coat. When that was dry, I taped off the parts that I wanted to keep shiny and added either matte top coat or teal textured polish (Crushed Candy by JulieG) to the rest of the nail. Let it dry, and voila!


This mani is a bit understated, but I really rather like how simple it is. I need to play more with color matching textured and regular polish! I ❤ my textured collection 🙂
