Mermaid's Dream is a frosty turquoise base with blue glitter, and tiny sparkly glitter. It's a complex polish, and it reminds me of pearls and the ocean, mermaid's dream indeed! The formula is good, it's easy to apply, but just a touch sheer. I usually find the need to use three coats, although it's nearly opaque in two (three pictured below). I usually wear it with a coat or two of top coat since I'm not a huge fan of bumpy polish, but top coat doesn't change the look of the polish very much at all (pictured with 1 layer of top coat).
Don't you just love it? I certainly do, and it looks particularly amazing with a little bit of a summer tan.
I'm planning on wearing Mermaid's Dream to go with a dress I bought for a friend's wedding this summer. (From Maurices, pictures on the left) Isn't it a perfect combination?
