Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure - 560 Mermaid's Tale Swatches!
I think I'm pretty much always going to buy a product if the word "mermaid" or "unicorn" is in it. Like... seriously. I'm obsessed with the Australian Mermaid Show. My coworker bought me a Unicorn coloring book. :|
Anyways, this I saw on Lindsay Does Nails' Instagram about a month ago originally and kept a mental not to keep an eye out for it at the drugstore. A few weeks later, I found it and bought it and it's because it looks very very similar to one of my favorite and many other people's favorite Deborah Lippmann color, Across The Universe.
Mermaid's Tale is a deep blue jelly base with green and blue pieces of glitter in various sizes. Across the Universe is slightly less blut and has slightly different sizes of glitter, but is very similar nonetheless.
The formula was sheer at 1 coat but definitely beefed up at 2 coats. At 3 you get a good coverage of glitter and a good base color.
If you can find it at your local drugstore, I completely recommend it, especially for those that don't have the budget for Deborah Lippmann polishes. I was able to purchase it for I think $7 at Walgreens.
