Teal Tuesdays - Glitter Freestyle

Today's Teal mani is glitter freestyle featuring Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in The Real Teal (base color) and Teal-y Cool (glitter). I decided to keep it simple today because I am not feeling too great. So I pulled out my trust Sally Hansen (what I collected before I knew there were other polishes) and thought I would double teal it today! I love this glitter and how subtle it is. It so isn't an in-your-face glitter. It is very soothing! This is just one coat of Teal-y Cool over one coat of The Real Teal. What better names for this day huh! :)

This is The Real Teal by itself, one coat. It's still a bit sheer (some VNL). But the glitter in the picture above deepens the teal color! But I love them both!

Teal Tuesdays was started because teal is unloved and needed its own day of celebration!
Teal is a medium to dark bluish green color of low saturation; a dark cyan.
Open to interpretation, anything green with a hint of blue or blue with a hint of green is welcome here!
Aqua, Turquoise,Tiffany Blue, etc etc...all are welcome - we do not discriminate!

  1. that glitter is awesome! is it hard to find? or close to CG Atlantis?

    1. Thanks! I haven't seen it in the stores lately. It was from the same collection that came out last summer/fall with Pumpkin Spice and Set the Stage and Very Cherry and Time to Shine. It was last major release of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear. But I know it went clearance at Target here in the winter. I don't know how close it is to Atlantis sadly I don't have that one. But I think it looks to me much much more sparse than Atlantis.

    2. oh yeah it's probly dc then, i got pumpkin spice on clearance at ulta back in february so i'm sure it's long gone. but i think i probably have enough teal glitters anyway!

  2. I love that glitter. It's much more sparse than Atlantis though, but still very pretty. :)
