New 31 Day Challenge - Day 6 - Favorite Color Family

Hey everyone! Blue is my favorite color, and I especially love different shades of teal. I hope it's not blasphemous for me to include white in this manicure, but I needed a contrasty base for the dots!
From lightest to darkest, the three shades of teal I used are A England Galahad, Illamsqua Muse, and Butter London Stag Do. For the accent nail, I painted my nails with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and then randomly added dots using a dotting tool and the three shades of teal. I changed the teal I used as I went further up the nail, from darkest to lightest. I decided that from now on, I'm going to take and edit my photos this way. I think it looks a lot better and emphasizes the nail art more. (It also means I don't have to take nearly as many photos). Though I do need some brighter lighting!

Thanks for reading, and be sure to check out the gorgeous nails of the wonderful ladies participating in this challenge along with me!
