I’ve been dealing with a serious case of weather denial. In my head it’s warm and sunny outside. In reality it’s cold and overcast. This manicure was definitely a manifestation of the weather in my head!
Teal the Night is from Maybelline’s Spring 2011 Runway collection and has clearly been collecting dust in my Melmer for quite a while. In the process of reorganizing my stash and making a new nail polish spreadsheet I came across this polish and couldn’t stop thinking about it.
Teal the Night is a green leaning blue (or, you know, teal) packed with a ton of microglitter. This polish has a glow kind of like Pixi Amazing Amethyst and SinfulColors Let’s Talk. It’s really not frosty.
The formula is quite thin so I used three coats in my swatches, but not difficult to work with.
This manicure definitely added some sunshine to my gloomy winter day. It looked cute with what I call my Florence ring. Plus, when I was wearing it, I matched my eyeliner (I used the teal shadow from the wet n wild Sparkle ‘Til Morning palette) to my nails which brightened my day even more. Even though I was probably the only one that noticed that….
As always, there are more swatches below the jump! And on a sort of related note, as I was reorganizing my nail polish stash I realized the Maybelline Express Finish bottles have gone through quite the makeover through the years. If you’re curious in the bottle evolution click here.
