  2. China Glaze - Turned Up Turquoise

  5. China Glaze - Custom Kicks
  6. China Glaze - Four Leaf Clover
  7. China Glaze - For Audrey
  8. Sinful - Envy
  9. OPI - Austin-Tatious Turquoise

Going by the name alone, you'd expect Emerald Depths to be a green shade. I certainly did. I was quite surprised when I got it & discovered it's in the teal/turquoise family. Lovely metallic shade that seems to glow.

Like a lot of neons, Turned Up Turquoise dries to a matte finish. Add a shiny topcoat & it comes to life. Definitely one of my favourites.

Atlantis is lovely. Luckily, it lacks the clumpy, gooeyness of Cosmic (from the same collection). Because the base is more of a jelly, it takes a few coats to get a solid, glittery finish.

Custom Kicks has tiny gold shimmers that don't really show up here. They do after a couple of coats, but not as a vivid glitter. Rather, they just add a spark to the colour.

Austin-Tatious Turquoise is absolutely stunning in the bottle. As well as being a pretty turquoise shade, there's lovely purple shimmers to it. On the nail, it's not very opaque. Even after three coats, you can still see your nail underneath. It looks fantastic as the finishing touch to a coat or two of Turned Up Turquoise.
