I hope everyone had a great weekend and got to enjoy that extra hour! I know I did =) I'm so excited to show you today's polish because it's a surprise favorite for me. From the swatches I saw online, it seemed like it may read a little bit too princess-y for me. But *wow* am I so happy that I got it anyway!
Teal Another Tail was released as part of KBShimmer's fall collection a couple months back. I wouldn't really describe it as teal personally... to me it's more of a saturated turquoise that leans a little more green than blue. It has some strong almost-duochrome pink glitter that looks like a gold/silver/metallic in certain light. There's also slightly larger teal glitter that's really pretty and adds some nice extra dimension.
Teal Another Tail dries down to a matte, slightly textured finish. I actually really love the finish... it was unexpected and makes for one very very unique polish. I also love how much of a chameleon this one is (you'll see in the pictures below)... in some light, the turquoise is so saturated and really stands out, in other light the pink is very dominant, and in dimmer lighting, the polish looks like a more muted metallic grey-ish tone.
The formula was equally as amazing as the shade itself. It flowed so smoothly on the nail, I didn't have to do any cleanup whatsoever. I used 3 coats, but 2 probably would have been fine. I just wanted to get the color as saturated as possible. I didn't add any top coat because I like the texture, but it would have looked beautiful either way!
As difficult as this polish is to describe, it was even harder to capture all of it's amazingness! I tried my best, but take my word for it when I say that it's 10000% better in person.

What do you guys think about Teal Another Tail?? Are you as excited about it as I am? Has anyone else tried it? This really is one that you need to see in person to truly appreciate.
I'm honestly blown away by KBShimmer. All their polishes that I've tried have been so beautiful and unique and they all have incredible formulas. I can't wait for my order of winter polishes to arrive. Yee!!
Anyways, thanks so much for stopping by and sticking with me through my inconsistent posting. I hope you have a beautiful day. =)
