With all the new makeup launches, it's pretty clear that turquoise nail polish  is the must-have shade for Spring and Summer. Not only does this blue-green color pop against springtime pastels, but also, it looks even cooler set against a golden sparkle.
For this mermaid-inspired look, I used the teal-hued Paul & Joe Nail Enamel in Caribbean  ($14), along with the gold-glittered Deborah Lippmann Boom Boom Pow  ($20). Start off with a base coat like Butter London Nail Foundation  ($19), and then swipe on two coats of the turquoise polish. Next, dab the gold glitter polish on the base of the nail to create a gradient effect. Once you have your desired look, seal everything with a top coat like Essie Good to Go  ($10) for fast-drying shine. Even if you're not soaking up some sun at the beach, one glance at your nails will take you there.
