Mermaid blues

Recently I've had an odd obsession with various shades of teal. It conjures such positive connotations in my mind like robin's eggs, the ocean, Tiffany's jewelry boxes and has just the right touch of blue to create a sense a calm while the yellow (green) adds a cheerful energy and youth.  As is evident from my mountain of paint chips (below), I'm seriously considering painting at least one wall in my new place this color.  

Since I am extremely indecisive by nature, I thought my nails would be the perfect place to test drive a few shades.

My Grandmother gave me a set of these little bowls and I've always loved the relaxing tonal green. Currently holding my jewelry and watch on my desk.

My ever expanding paint chip collection for my office and hallway... I'm leaning towards a muted bluish-green hue.
