What’s The Difference Between Turquoise & Teal?
Both turquoise nails and teal nails are in right now. But what’s the actual difference between these two colors?
Like turquoise, teal is a color that is greenish-blue. The main difference between turquoise and teal is that teal lies in the medium/dark range of the color spectrum because it is one of the deeper shades of bluish green. Meanwhile, turquoise has a bit more yellow in it and is brighter in color, on the lighter end of the color spectrum.
Here’s a photo to show you the visual difference:
