Nice choices!

I tried layering Angel Kiss over Essie First Timer (dupe for Nomad) the other day, and thought it worked really well. Basically a greener version of Angel Kiss. And I love green. The formula for the color club holographic polishes (that I’ve tried) is so perfect.

Also, even though I have First Timer and like the formula, I am so tempted by Nomad. 🙁

It’s so hard to resist the original if you can get it 🙁 I have bought many dupes in lieu of the original but have wanted the original, too.

Zoya’s Zuza is one of my favorites! So pretty and Summery! The OCC one looks really pretty too. Would love to use it as an accent nail with Zuza!

My favourite teal polish is still Illamasqua Muse.
The ones in this list are a bit too green for me. I need a slight blue tone in my teals.

every time i see Five ways i am so excited but when it comes to nail polishes am hopeless case 🙁

my pick would be Butter London SLAPPER – the one and only TEAL i own .. its stunninggg
and am gonna hunt for Zoya if i can 🙂 i guess i will be able to get it …
looks so wonderful 😀

Ack! So many pretty greens! 😀 it strikes me that I like most all of the Zoya things you post, yet I personally own no Zoya… I may have to remedy this!

I also love/don’t own any holos…May have to hit up Cirque at some point!

My favourites here are the first three!

If you can try Zoya, it’s a great brand – lots of colors and finishes, good quality overall, and not too pricey (at least, not here).

Just came from Ulta with Giovanna in hand. It’s so beautiful. I also love Sephora by OPI Mermaid to Order and Butter London’s Thames. All gorgeous but slightly different.

These look great! My fave teal polish is China Glaze Custom Kicks. As a matter of fact, Custom Kicks is my absolute favorite nail polish period! I adore the shade, and honestly I could get rid of all my other polishes and just wear Custom Kicks everyday for the rest of my life. That’s how much I love it! 🙂

The 2 Zoya polishes look absolutely stunning…I’m going to have to look for one or both of them. Doubt I’d wear them on my fingernails, but on toes- anything goes!

I own the two zoya . I love Giovanna
Zuza is still waiting in my sister house 15 hours of flight away
I really want the color club
How the OCC nail polishes ?
