10 Turquoise polishes

Hello Loves! I recently purchased China Glaze's Aquadelic and Essie's Where's My Chauffeur? and found that I have collected a few similar turquoise/teal polishes. I would like to justify that they all have a different shade as my fiance wondered why I had so many of the same colored polishes -_-

In reality I really don't need this many turquoise lacquers, but I have a hard time resisting...I'm going to have to work on saying "no" to myself when it comes to getting similar shades. Anyone else have this problem?

Below I have 10 polishes to share with you:





All but Essie's Turquoise & Caicos and OPI's Mermaid's Tears took only 2 coats while these took 3. I could go into detail about the shade differences, but I don't want to type a lengthy post. If you have any of these colors or are planning on getting any of these, I hope this helps you see how they compare. 

As always, have a beautiful day! ♥

  1. hahaha so many colors!!good that I'm not a nail polish girl because i have the same problem with blushes!!I'm addicted to them and i have to stop myself from buying so many because gravitate towards the same type of shades...same things with lip products. so seriously thanks that i'm not into nails!

    but guys...they would never understande the subtle change in color =)

  2. Beautiful, I actually love the ombre effect you get when you've painted your nails with all the different colors! I would love to try Turquoise & Caicos :) Reading your blog is causing me to develop a slight nail polish obsession!!

  12. So many similar polishes but I like how they are all different at the same time. China Glaze "For Audrey" has to be my favorite out of the bunch though.

  13. They may be similar in shade, but they are so pretty! My bf wanted to know why I wanted a shade from Essie that he said looked like "skin color" haha. XD

  18. Haha. That is actually a lot of teal but your shades range from blue to green. It's excusable. Plus, minty colors have been so hot for the past few seasons.

  20. They are all very different and therefore each is necessary! Men just don't understand! =P

  21. I'm sorry, but you need to tell your fiance that these are all different shades! I love these! It's funny, but Essie's Mint Candy Apple didn't like quite so minty in your pictures compared to the other polishes! It looks almost light blue!

      I have to agree! I was expecting it to be mintier too haha.

  22. I absolutely love this post! I'm so obsessed with Turquoise/Mint polishes. I have Essie's Mint Candy Apple, Essie's Turquoise & Caicos and China Glaze's For Audrey and I love all three of them. Based on your swatches I think I might try to get my hands on Essie's Where's My Chauffer and Color Club's Blue-ming.

  24. I have all these except for the Models own and the newer Essie one I have such a hard time not buying any more turquoise, aqua, and mints that are similar. Another great Turquoise aqua creme would be Zoya- Wednesday.

  25. I am the same way with pinks but with turquoise, the logical side comes out and reminds me I have For Audrey. So I pass on a lot of the ones in this color family.

  27. Oh my gosh, I can relate. I think I have more turquoise/blue-greens than any other color. It's kind of ridiculous but they're all so pretty! :) It's fun seeing them all at the same time. Thanks for putting this together!
