Teal All The Things

Last week I revealed my shade created with Firecracker Lacquer for The Color Box, and today I have a full review of The Color Box Teal All The Things!

The Color Box Teal All The Things Main

Now I’ll admit, teal is a difficult color to do. It has many interpretations of the shade depending on who you ask. Overall though, I think this box came together nicely and has a nice assortment of shades ranging from borderline turquoise up to borderline blue. We all know that if we stuck to a basic teal it would get fairly boring and repetitive, I’m personally happy with how this box turned out.

Let’s look at each shade a little closer!

Manna’s Marvelous Masterpiece

Anchor and Heart Manna's Marvelous Masterpiece

Manna’s Marvelous Masterpiece was created by Manna of Manna’s Manis and Taryn of Anchor & Heart Lacquer. This is a light, vibrant teal crelly base with strong blue shimmer, gold flakes, and a soft linear holographic.I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Last up is my creation with Kendahl of Firecracker Lacquer! My shade is a dark, heavily blue leaning teal jelly with pink shimmer flecks and a scattered holographic effect. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

You know those teals that are a pain in the butt to photograph because they don’t want to show the green tones? Yeah this is one of them.

The Color Box Teal All The Things Overview

This was a fun box to be a part of and I love how different all 5 shades are. When the voting for the color was taking place, I was sitting here like “no teal, no teal, no teal” and boom teal. It’s not that I dislike teal, I love it – but it’s hard to do variations on it and I thought the colors would turn out too close to each other, but really – the box has a nice variety on each blogger/maker take on teal.

Price: $45.00

Where To Buy: The Color Box Shop

Preorder Dates: June 27th – July 4th

For more photos of the teal box and future boxes, make sure you join The Color Box Facebook Group.

What are your thoughts? Are you loving the variety? What color box do you hope to see next?

I felt the exact same way when the voting was taking place. I love teal but it’s a difficult one to do a bunch of variations on. I’m pretty proud of how this box came out too. Your polish is so pretty. <3 Great job with this review.

I was looking forward to this box but sadly only interested in a couple of them. The others are too blue rather then teal to me. But still pretty! My fav is Manna’s Marvelous Masterpiece

I am so impressed by the way you all created 5 completely different teal polishes! And I just love the one you created – combining teal with pink shimmer and holo is magnificent!
