This is one vibrant color and sometimes I felt like it was really loud even for me. Overall a really fun color to wear. It's a true Turquoise/Teal if there is such a thing. It's much greener and darker in real life than the pictures show. Just one of those colors that the camera has a hard time capturing(heh yes I'm gonna blame the camera not me). This is a color I've always enjoyed, my husband says it's because I'm Polish. When he lived in Chicago he said he had a lot of Polish friends and they all loved Teal. heh I guess I can't help it if it's in my blood : ). I had one lady stop me in the middle of whole foods telling me how much she loves my nails and this color, and the necklace I was wearing which is in the pics below. She really caught me off guard but in a good way. The color is considered a neon and it does dry matte. I did put a top coat on this because it just looked better with one in my opinion. I believe all the pics are with a top coat on, but I can't remember. Application was so so on this one only because this baby is sheer and took a few coats to build up the color. That's the bad part about shades like this when you find them the majority of them are sheer. I do have a few in my collection that are more opaque but this is not one of them.
