NOTD: China Glaze - Turned up Turquoise a la Coach

So I took a trip to Sally's over the weekend, finally grabbed the Avant Garden pieces I wanted, and saw the "Ombre" polish set from China Glaze.  Instinctively I am drawn to turquoise/aqua colors, but realized that I have all the colors in the set except for "Turned up Turquoise."  So here is my mani of the day using new to me Turned up Turquoise.  I used 2 coats of TuT and since it dries matte (and pretty quick!) I used Sally Hansen Insta Dri Top Coat (red bottle).
But since I can't leave well enough alone....I stamped the Coach logo full nail image from my MJ-IV plate.  I'm sure there are all sorts of copyright issues with this logo being on this plate, but I love's one of the main reasons I bought this plate.  I stamped using Sally Hansen - Silver Sweep that I doctored with a Spectraflare alternative (noticeable in person...not so much in pics).  Turned up Turquoise is such a beautiful bright teal with micro shimmer.  I really have no idea why I hadn't bought this color sooner!


  1. I love Turned up Turquoise, this post reminded me that shall have to take it out and use it soon! Its funny how you make the Coach motif look so ligit... I alwasy see these kinds of plates and think to my-self no way ANYONE can pull those off... and look at you! pulling it off beautifully.
