Nothing says Friday like a little glitter! Last Friday I was looking around for a Friday night manicure and came across Mermaid’s Tale. I was planning on wearing a nude and neon green dress so a dark manicure was definitely in order.
Back in the late spring I spotted Sally Hansen’s summer 2013 Under the Sea shade collection display at Walgreens. I love blues for summer so I was excited about this collection. I ended up with Mermaid’s Tale and Black and Blue.
Mermaid’s Tale has large blue and green glitter as well as smaller, dark blue glitter suspended in a blacked blue jelly base. Completely gorgeous.
The formula is ok. Granted, it’s a glitter polish so I wasn’t expecting amazing. Using Mermaid’s Tale alone I need three to four coats to get an opaque enough color. I prefer to use it over another polish.
Below the jump there are swatches of Mermaid’s Tale alone, swatches over butter LONDON Royal Navy as well as a few shots in the sun.
