Anyone relying on my photos for accurate swatches is a fool. That fact is most apparent to me today, as I tried incessantly to take an accurate photo of Orly ‘Teal Unreal’ nail polish. And then I just gave up.
Teal Unreal is a bright teal — blue infused green. So obviously, the photos are too blue; in real live Teal Unreal is greener. I’ve been really loving the combination of teal and gold lately. The gold here is Cirque Colors ‘Helios’ — I will need a back up of this bottle as mine is running unexpectedly low.
Another version of this mani was Essie ‘Go Overboard’ (with Helios), a darker teal. I forgot to take pictures until day 5 or 6 so, scusa the chippies. The one accent nail is with Orly ‘Sparkling Garbage’, a multicolor glitter that I’ve also been loving — except some variation with this in the next few months.
The swatches below actually reflect the colors much better. Go Overboard is a smidge darker than in real life, but the tone is correct. That is a dot of Sparkling Garbage over the teals.
