Teal Tuesdays - Feathers

This week's Tealicure is Feathers! So I decided to try and re-do my peacock mani from a few months ago. My base is GOSH Ocean, which looks way more teal in the bottle than on the nail. But I still liked it so I decided to continue with it. The feather stamp is from Chez Delaney, plate H6. I used KleanColor in Metallic Green and Metallic Purple. The green didn't quite show up as defined as I wanted but I love the bright tropical feel of this mani! :)  (And yes, I did file my nails down a bit which shows off my fatter ring finger! hahaha!)

Here is GOSH Ocean on it's own. Note my middle finger and the ugliness of the application of the polish. This formula wasn't the greatest and left brush strokes. But the feather stamp covered it up just nicely! :)

GOSH Ocean is a duochrome of a sort and here it is a brighter paler blue in this picture. Even though this polish gave me some problems I still think it is a gorgeous bright happy color! :)

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. It's a gorgeous polish, bummer that the application wasn't the best :( Love the stamping!

  2. Gosh ocean is a gorgeous colour. The formula is a bit of a turn off though :(

  3. The feather, at first, I thought was eyes. Love these colors.

  4. Ocean is in my untrieds! It's so pretty in the bottle and on your nails, what a bummer that the formula's not good. LOVE the stamping. :)

  5. love this - the colours work awesomely together xx
