Sally Hansen Mermaid’s Tale

Sally Hansen Mermaid's Tale ManicureNothing 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.

  1. Nice. I can see the appeal of layering it over underwear, but it looks like just doing multiple coats gives it a nice depth.

    • It does, but using a dark base doesn’t take much of the depth away. Plus, it makes removing the polish ALOT easier!

      This is definitely one of those polishes that can either be worn alone or as a topper depending on your personal preference :)

  2. I’ve heard so many good things about this polish, and it looks stunning!

  3. This polish reminds me a little bit of my favorite. Super Black Lacquers makes one called “The Bends” that is absolutely amazing for a deep, bubbly, underwater look.

  4. […] display that was released this past spring I had to stop and give it a good look. I ended up with Mermaid’s Tale (appropriate for an Arial wannabe) and Black and […]
