Hello, readers! I have a super exciting post to share with you before bed. I couldn’t wait to swatch the new Deborah Lippmann Mermaids when they arrived today and I just had to post it right away. They are gorgeous! Mermaid’s Dream was my favorite Deborah Lippmann polish so when I heard there was an entire mermaid-inspired collection coming out, I had to get them all! They look awesome paired with Mermaid’s Dream, so I’m showing that one in this post as well even though it’s not “new.”
A little bit of info about all of them: I’ve done two coats of each with Cult Nails Wicked Fast. They tend to dry gritty (with the exception of Million Dollar Mermaid) and once my Wicked Fast was hardened, there was still a bit of texture. I’d recommend a thick top coat if you want a glossy finish. They all applied wonderfully and I have no issues to report. Just stunning!
Let’s start out with my favorite of the new set, Mermaid’s Kiss. A gorgeous light pink base, packed with light and dark pink mini hexes and TONS of gold fleck shimmer. The gold is so intense, it’s my favorite part about it!
Next up, we have Million Dollar Mermaid. A pale orange base with orange mini and micro hexes and gold shimmer. The gold shimmer is smaller and less intense than that in Mermaid’s Kiss but I think it works better this way for this base color and keeps it from looking too yellow.
Do The Mermaid is the purple of the bunch and was the most textured when dry without top coat. The pastel purple base is full of purple mini and micro hexes and what appears to be silver shimmer. It’s the only polish in the set without gold added in.
The last new polish is Mermaid’s Eyes. It is an opaque blue base with blue mini hexes and gold micro glitter. There is less glitter and the base is much more opaque than the others– I could have only worn one coat. The second coat covered up the glitters, though, and the blue mini hexes are almost lost in the blue base. I just adore this shade of blue!
Now we’ve come to the original mermaid– Mermaid’s Dream. As I said before, this was my favorite Deborah Lippmann polish and it may still be. Such a beautiful mix of seafoam base with gold shimmer and blue hexes. I just love it!
