Teal & Turtle

I feel like I need to preface this post with a note about the colors in the photographs here: I'm really not happy with them! My camera seemed to hate this mani, no matter what I did to try to correct things. So, my apologies!

I ordered some Hex Nail Charms a while back but hadn't used them yet, so when I sat down recently to finally remedy that situation, I wanted to do something easy that also matched well with one of the charms. The turtle charm, in particular, was calling to me, so I decided to do a blue and teal saran wrap mani that reminded me of beautiful, clear waters where turtles might be found.

I started with a base of Zoya Zuza (love that name!) and let that dry, and then one nail at a time, I added a coat of Zoya Tart and dabbed the surface of each nail with a wadded up ball of saran wrap. Pretty easy! After adding some top coat and letting everything dry, I added the turtle charm with some nail glue. It stayed put perfectly until I was ready to remove it a few days later!
