I loved my previous manicures but I would drop them all in a heartbeat for this gorgeous combo.
Yes, I am that obsessed with these polishes.
On my pinky, middle finger and index finger is Deborah Lippmann Mermaid’s Dream. I don’t know how she did it, but I could stare at my nails for hours admiring the textured light minty green with the tiny blue glitters. Unlike her famous polish Across The Universe, so far there is no dupe for Mermaid’s Dream. And I am loving it so much that even though I’ve just tried it on for the first time with this manicure I’m seriously considering buying a back-up bottle just to hoard.
If you were too busy admiring Mermaid’s Dream, you might not have noticed that I had not one, but two accent fingers this time around. On my ring finger and thumb is Nubar’s Denim with All That Glitters’ The Jean Genie layered on top. At first I was worried that it would pale in comparison to Mermaid’s Dream (and in a way it does fail to attract from far) but wait! Look closer and Jean Genie is a sparkler in her own right. Jean Genie is a mix of hexagonal silver glitter with smaller blue and green glitters with white square and bar shapes suspended in a blue tinted base with the tiniest silver glitters. It sounds like a crowd in there, but trust me, it’s not. And when you get just the right amount of glitter on your nail it’s sheer delight.
In the pictures above, I have on Nail Tek Foundation II Ridge Filling Base Coat and 2 coats of Seche Vite dry fast top coat on all nails. For my pinky, middle finger and index finger, I have on 2 coats of Mermaid’s Dream. For the accent nails on my ring finger and thumb, I have on 2 coats of Denim (can hardly be seen) and 2 coats of Jean Genie.
