Transitioning Turquoise: Day to Night

I painted my nails turquoise the other day (Essie: Turquoise and Caicos) and bought some turquoise flip flops, and suddenly I was ready to wear bright summer colors. I normally wear a lot of dark colors with black as a base, but bright colors really can be transitioned from day into night outfits. This was my quick attempt at taking turquoise from day to night, and while this night outfit might not work for lots of occasions, Florida nights are a little less formal than some other places. 

I would wear the day ensemble to lunch with girlfriends or a day at the beach. The night would be perfect for a summer dinner date drinking mojitos on an outdoor patio. 

Thoughts? Can turquoise be made a night color?

I love both of these outfits and turquoise has been one of my favorite summer colors for a couple years now. I'm trying to add more of it (and coral) to my wardrobe. The Anthropologie dress and Michael Kors sandals are so nice.
