Teal Tuesdays - CopyCat Mani

So this week we decided to make our tealicures a recreation of someone else's mani. I had a bit of a time trying to come up with some ideas, because this week has been kind of a crazy one (I've been spending as much time as I can with my new nephew) so I did my mani and it turned out alright in person but in photos it didn't end up like I wanted it to. But I still do like the main aspect of the mani. So I thought I would still use it!

 This is suppose to be a straw splatter mani. Hahahahaha! The straws were not working for me today. And have you ever tried doing a straw splatter mani using teal! Big big mistake! Stains everywhere!!! Hahahaha!
I could use this as a when manis go horribly wrong! Haha! :) Can you tell I don't take my self so seriously! Every once in awhile we are allowed a less than perfect mani, right? ;)

So I used p2 Groovy as my base and "splattered" using KleanColor Metallic Aqua, Essence Bella, China Glaze Atlantis, and Joe Fresh Teal (he is the culprit to covering the other polishes!). I used OPI Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees Suede for my Tokidoki symbol.

Here are the polishes I used: OPI Suzy Skis in the Pyrenees Suede, Joe Fresh Teal, China Glaze Atlantis, Essence Bella, KleanColor Metallic Aqua, and p2 Groovy.

So my mani wasn't perfect but it was still fun and it was fun to create. I was also glad to learn a new trick creating the Tokidoki symbol. And I do love my Tokidoki symbol that I recreated! Have you guessed who's mani I chose?

Gnarly Gnails Tokidoki Tutorial! I love how her's turned out! And I love the Tokidoki symbol! :)

Here is a what p2 Groovy looked like before it got covered up (especially by Joe Fresh Teal!)

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. Im a sucker for teals as well!! I have a small question, how do you make those title logos??

    1. I actually don't make them. Missy from Gnarly Gnails, who is also in the Teal Tuesdays groups makes them. I'm so not computer savvy! :)
