Teal, teal, teal!

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 13 - 2012

From pale to dark, teal is the perfect blue/green combination and it’s everywhere this season.  I thought I’d swatch the cream teal nail polishes in my collection to give you some alternatives to Estee Lauder’s Teal Topaz spring sell-out polish.

From left to right: Estee Lauder – Teal Topaz  |  Misa – Dirty, Sexy, Money|  Barielle Shades – A Bouquet For Ava  |  American Apparel – Peacock  |  Ciate – Superficial

If shimmers are more your cup of tea, don’t forget that March is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and Lena White are donating £1 to Ovacome – the ovarian cancer support network – for every sale of OPI’s Teal the Cows Come Home.

Are any of these shades catching your eye?  What’s your favourite teal?

    I love OPI – Fly and Catch Me in Your Net but I think that doesn’t quite qualify as a teal

    Not a massive teal fan, they just don’t seem to look right on me, but that American Apparel shade is very very nice.

    I do love a good nail colour wheel!

    I love greener teals, more towards minty green.
    My favorite real ever is I think Butter London Victoriana, at least I think it looks teal on me!

    These are gorgeous. Teal is one of my favorite colors. Ovarian cancer runs in my family so this is particularly poignant for me.

    Excellent, I was wondering about dupes of the Estee Lauder which wouldn’t break the bank account. Now, which one to get?
