I had heard so much about this color, when I found it I decided to jump on the bandwagon, tried it on my fingers & toes (note to self: no Turquoise & Caicos for my lil' piggies, it just looked weird on my feet). But cute on my nails. My skin is quite pinky in some of these pics (THANKS INDOOR LIGHTING!!), but the color is pretty true to what you see. I was able to wear polish - flat color on it's own for a total of 24 hours. I'm finding more & more I MUST MUST MUST add some sort of something to a mani now. Flakies, glitter, tape, more than one color. I don't know if that's a good or bad thing... we shall see I suppose.
|Indoor lighting... It is truly unbelievable how my skin looks like piglet skin. WTF?|
|Different angle, appeared a bit darker than the first one|

|And of course... I can't leave a flakie/glitter untouched. Ya gotta mattify it! I used Essie Matte About You|
1st up - APPLICATION: I thought it was a little on the thick side. But I fought through :).
2nd - COVERAGE: Very good. This was a 2 coater for me! Very easy to get opaque on account of thickness
3rd - WEAR: This was only on me for one day before I added swatched the topcoats above... but good news is there was no chipping in a day LOL. I topped it off with a coat of Poshe & all was good with the world.
As you can see I used various topcoats to see how they'd get along with Turquoise & Caicos. They got along magnificently :) Hope you enjoyed!
