NOTD: China Glaze ‘Turned Up Turquoise’

I’m continuing with wearing polishes that I haven’t photographed yet! I put them all in a spreadsheet and by my count there’s currently 144. Yeah I have a lot to go, but that’s great for everyone because NAIL SWATCHES FOR DAYS.

Today I have a China Glaze polish. This is ‘Turned Up Turquoise’, a bright neon, well, turquoise.

This dries matte, so fast dry times, but it can also be a little difficult to work with. My favorite way to apply mattes is to load up the brush a little more, and do a little thicker coat. Then just swipe it on with a few brush strokes – manipulate it as little as possible or else you’re get streaks everywhere.

This was 3 coats for me, but it was just so bright and fun. Adding a top coat to it will really bring out the shimmer in it, but I left it matte here.


One terrible thing about matte finishes though: they chip in about 6 minutes. Something to remember.

Stay tuned for more NOTDs and reviews coming up!
