Given my recent obsession with almost all nail polishes in nearly all shades of the rainbow (plus a bevy of colors you wouldn’t likely find in nature), it’s hard to imagine that there was ever a time in my life that I strayed from “less practical” shades like green, blue, and purple. In fact, much like the ever-changing beauty world’s trends, my own “color of the moment” is constantly being updated on a rotating basis. My shade for this very moment, however, would have to be turquoise.
Muted teal, sparkly aqua, metallic — I’m clearly not picky about my specific sub-shade, but whichever you choose, it’s bound to be eye-catching. Sure, turquoise isn’t especially military-chic, Halloween-festive, or even a tad autumnal at all; in fact, it’s more reminiscent of a tropical getaway than anything remotely fall-esque. But who says you can’t vacation vicariously through the season’s boldest nail polish trend?
