NOTD: 40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Teal

Hello sweeties! It's Friday (yay!) and it is time for another manicure for the 52 weeks Challenge Called "40 Great Nail Art Ideas" and the prompt for today is Teal.

Last time I posted for this challenge I was rushing and couldn't explain it very well. This is a Double prompted challenge, every other week there is a theme prompt and the rest are colour prompts. Whenever there is a color prompt, each participant gets a different technique. It is simpler than it sounds and it really ensures the creativity and uniqueness of all the manicures!
Today I ought to combine "Teal" nail polish and "Dots" technique.

I was itching to use this gorgeous colour from OPI Hawaii Technique called "This color is making waves"and this seemed the perfect opportunity. I tell you this shade is mesmerizing by itself! It is metallic a bit duochrom-ish and has that "lit from within" appearance PLUS super subtle scattered holo particles.
So the shade is a statement by itself no nail art needed really.
But As I had to add some dots, I tried to keep it the simplest I could. I just dotted a diagonal strand of dots on the tip of each nail and made a swirling strand of dots as an accent on the ring finger.

I used the colors below, from left to right: Essence Snow Jam Life is a Free ride, Rococo Spellbound molten lava, OPI This color is making waves, Essence The Gel nail polish Wild White ways.

How you like this mani? let me know if you'd wear something like this. Also, do not forget to check the inlinkz here below with all the nail art creations for today's prompt.

Have a wonderful weekend, sweeties!
