Deborah Lippmann - Mermaid's Dream

Happy Sunday :) I've debated about showcasing this particular nail polish, because I cannot for the life of me get a decent looking photo of it! I know everyone I've talked to likes it, loves it, went crazy over it, so I couldn't NOT blog about this gem. Deborah Lippmann Mermaid's Dream is a fierce polish, I just can't capture it on "film" the way it looks to me in real life, which is beyond frustrating.

It's described as a "seafoam splendor (glittered shimmer)". It has a fab pale ocean blue-green metallic base, tons of microglitter in gold and green, and medium sized blue hex glitter. It dries like a foil, and I found it can look shriveled if I applied the second coat before the first one was dry. The glitter was easy to work with, no worries about each piece placing correctly on the nail. This is two coats, which is impressive for an all glitter shade.

I still am not one hundred percent happy with how this picture turned out, it is totally a million times better in person. And if you own it already, you know that. If you don't, what the hell are you waiting for?! You can get it at Deborah Lippmann's site for $18 or at Nordstrom stores.

  1. The pic is good. I actually had it on today. My only gripe is that it chips so quick on my nails regardless of what I use for a base or topcoat.
