Decorate As You Dress: Turquoise & Orange!!

I have loved the colour combination of orange (whether you call it tangerine, citrus or coral) and blue (turquoise & teal especially) for many years now, and it is still going strong.  So for this month’s nail colour I decided to honour my adoration for these 2 colours.

I also made my first official DIY canvas art using this fresh colour combo – highlighting another love of mine – chevron — this time last year.  And it is still in my family room on display!
