Teal Tuesdays: Copycat

This week's teal challenge was to copy a manicure of somebody else's, but, of course, involving teal!

I saw this adorable tutorial over at Chalkboard Nails the other week, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to give it a go.  If you haven't visited Chalkboard Nails before, go look now!  She has some fantastic nail art, and some really clear tutorials.

Anyhoo, on to the tealy goodness.

Aren't they just the cutest little things...

I had to change my mani a little from the tutorial, because I just couldn't seem to fit all the detail on!

For my base I used OPI Mermaid's Tears.  For the detail I used Barry M Teal, Bright Pink and Lemon Ice Cream, and a black nail art pen.  The glitter on my thumb is one coat of Barry M Aqua Glitter.  Lots and lots of Barry M...

Have a look what the other lovely ladies have come up with for this week's challenge:
