I Never Thought I'd Wear This Colour on My Nails Until I Saw This Chic Manicure

When it comes to manicures, I'm a creature of habit. I'd say there's around three to four nail polish colours I choose time and time again, from a classic neutral shade to a chic red for summer and a dark navy blue for autumn and winter. That being said, occasionally I come across a new colour and find myself obsessing over it for months on end. Lately, that shade has been baby pink, but after hearing about teal nails, I think I might have just found my new summer manicure of choice.

I've got to be honest, the teal nail trend wasn't even on my radar until a few weeks ago. In fact, I don't think I would have ever opted for this shade as it's definitely out of my comfort zone. However, after seeing searches for teal nails increasing on Google Trends, I was immediately intrigued. So, I went straight onto Instagram to look at some of my favourite nail accounts to see if there were any pictures of teal manicures.

As you'll see below, I came across so many chic teal nail designs that are perfect for the season ahead. I didn't realise just how good this colour looked until now, but I plan on making up for lost time and trying out a teal nail polish straight away. If you want to give the trend a go, keep on scrolling for all the inspo you need...
