Best Turquoise Nails – Top 3 Nail Reviews 2019

How to Achieve Awesome Turquoise Nails

A cooling blend of blue and green, turquoise is named after the French for Turkish, and that was the route taken by the merchants who sold this rare gem, originally mined in Persia. Said to bring peace and serenity to the wearer of these beautiful semi-precious stones, it was often worn alongside gold to symbolize the mystery and intuition of the feminine.

Wisdom, creativity and love are all associated with turquoise, and rumored to have connections to the spirit world, carved turquoise amulets for protection and good fortune have been found at ancient sites around the world.

An earthy reddish brown, purple or tomato red all complement turquoise perfectly, and as a nail polish it suits any skin tone.

I’ve enjoyed trying out these gorgeous turquoise polishes, and here’s my top three.

1) OPI Nail Polish – Teal the Cows Come Home

What Makes it Great
Cool and summery, with a shimmer finish, OPI’s Teal the Cows Come Home (really?) is simply beautiful. It’s quite a bright joyous turquoise, reminiscent of warm and welcoming tropical oceans, and I love it. It lasted a good two weeks before I had to remove it due to chipping.

Where it Could be Improved
I had to apply two coats of this polish to achieve the smooth, uniform look I wanted.

The Final Verdict

Bright, bold and summery, OPI’s turquoise polish is perfect for a day out in the sun.

2) essie Nail Polish – In The Cab-Ana

What Makes It Great
To my eyes, this almost pastel polish is more of an aqua than turquoise. It’s bold and self-assured, and makes me smile by looking as though a crowd of azure blue butterflies have landed on my nails.

Where It Could Be Improved
Being a little thick to apply smoothly, I gently mixed in a few drops of acetone until I had the right consistency.

The Final Verdict

This bright turquoise is party fun all the way - music, dancing, sand and sea. It brings back memories of carefree summer days.

3) ZOYA Nail Polish – Lillian

What Makes It Great
Lillian has soft, pastel baby blue hues, rather than the bold, vibrant tone we expect from turquoise. However, it’s a really pretty color, and containing less green pigment than the stronger versions, has a wider range of complementary colors to choose from. Not known for my overwhelming love of pastel, I really like this polish, and was pleased it lasted nearly two weeks before it chipped.

Where It Could Be Improved
The odor when I opened the bottle, was a little strong, but an open window soon fixed that problem.

The Final Verdict

Prettily pastel, this pale baby blue turquoise is delicate and gentle, but extremely eye catching, and garnered lots of compliments.
