Manicure Monday: Turquoise & Caicos

July 16, 2012

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I was down in Calgary - so nice to be with friends, relax, and just stuff my face with food. I was literally in pig mode.. Eat.. sleep.. eat.. wait & digest.. eat. Time to start working out again before I become a big ball!


On my nails this week is an oldie but goodie - Essie Turquoise & Caicos. With mint shades popping up everywhere, it was only right that I pulled out this colour to play with, and spice it up with some gold glitter (Sephora by OPI Only Gold For Me)! Not to mention, it's a great pop of colour for any outfit!


I find myself going back to this shade all the time. It's a beautiful vibrant teal-mint colour, quite similar to the classic Tiffany Blue. And luckily, this shade is permanent in the Essie collection - so you can pick one up too!


The formula is fantastic, and honestly, you could get away with just one thick coat on your nails. Application is smooth, and I always get 4-5 days of chip free wear. How much better can this colour get?

Which shades do you always find yourself going back to?

  9. I love this color. I use the glitter too, but I put in on the tip of my nails (kinda like french manicure). I like the way you scattered it all over the nails. Good idea.

  10. Beautiful color. <3 the flecks of gold you added. I always find myself going back to a soft shade of pink --the color doesn't stand out as much when I'm wearing bright colored outfits & therefore doesn't clash.

    1. I totally agree! I love wearing softer shades especially in the winter.. but in the summer, I have that urge to pull out all my brights!
