China Glaze Turned up Turquiose + Black Diamond

Hubby's Choice!

  I was feeling so very uninspired so I asked my hubby to pick me a color or some colors to do something with... He came back with a pretty bad ass combo and this is what I came up with.
  Turned up Turquoise is exactly just that! Practically neon but with a beautiful micro shimmer that makes the color seem like it could glow in the dark. The formula is very opaque and smooth. I only needed Two coats of Turned up Turquoise for my mani. This shade dries matte but once I added a coat of Seche Vite it made the color look like beach water. This shade is a lot Greener than my pictures show but my camera was freaking out at this color a little. Black Diamond is just amazing! It's an almost Black shimmer that is so edgy and beautiful. Even though I didn't officially swatch this color I can tell the formula is great and has great coverage as you can see. Turned up Turquoise doesn't even peek through Black Diamond. I really love this mani and this color combo. I'm a big fan of edgy and not necessarily girly looks.

What are your favorite kinds of manis?

  2. This looks freaking gorgeous.

    I thought it was For Audrey when I first glanced at it, and seeing as I don't own Turned up Turquoise I think I might whip out my For Audrey and Black Diamond and try them together.

    Hubby did a great job! :D
