Dark Teal Swatches: Gelaze Turned Up Turquoise & Couture Teal the Show 8

I have a couple of darker teal swatches today since I posted some lighter teal swatches a few days ago.  The first one is Gelaze Turned Up Turquoise, a bright shimmery teal.  I really love this color, but I was expecting it to be slightly more opaque.  I still had some visible nail line after(…)
