In yesterday's post Matte vs Matte, I stated that I had never used a matte before so imagine my surprise today when Turned Up Turquoise dried as a matte. It was a nice surprise, but like with other matte finishes adding your favorite top coat will make matte shine :-). I didn't make China Glaze Turned up Turquoise into a shiny polish though.
I found the polish very difficult to photograph. On some pictures Turned Up Turquoise looks like a mint colored polish and then on others it looks blue. This is not the case. The color is more of a teal-turquoise. It's more green than blue and very bright! Always a good thing for the summer. I tried several different lighting options and still couldn't get a true to life color.
Artificial light and no flash
natural light and flash

Here's a comparison with OPI Fly and China Glaze Aquadellic:
