I have literally just bought this polish and rushed home to swatch it and I NEVER do that.
I am not a nail polish fan, sure some shades catch my attention every now and then but my goodness is Sally Hansen Mermaid's Tale Complete Salon Manicure Polish is the dream. If like myself you have swooned over the likes of Debroah Lippmann's Across the Universe but baulked at the price this is for you.
Even if you haven't seen or lusted after such shade this polish still warrants a purchased based on its sheer beauty. It truly will make you stop dead in your tracks...well it did have that effect on me at least.
Best summed up Sally Hansen Mermaid's Tale is an almost clear jelly based (it does have a slight tinge of blue) that has an abundance of round chunks of green and bright blue glitter combined with teeny tiny flecks of micro blue glitter. Like I said it is a beauty but to really bring it alive you want to layer it over a dark polish and then marvel at your new fit for a mermaid princess glossy, gel like nails. Be it a dark blue, bright blue, black or even a green shade it really doesn't matter as each result is truly breathtaking - as we speak I am painting my toenails black so I can layer this on top. I will save you from such visuals of course.
If you buy one polish this week, month or even year let it be Sally Hansen Mermaid's Tale...gah I am in love!
