So these might be waves. Or maybe a cross-section of one of those semi-precious stones like Malachite. Or a melting glacier. Or seaweed washing up on shore. Or a mountain range. Or a very energetic heart monitor. That’s the beauty of a highly abstract design like this one – to each their own. All *I* know is that every one of my turquoise polishes got a major workout with this manicure, and boy howdy, did they stain! So there’s a small, useful tip with regards to blue/green-based polishes – liberally employ a base coat, or suffer the stained-out consequences.
