Today I want to share a quick review of Mermaid Tale with you all. I teased you a little when I first bought the glitters from the Flash Glam collection and now I’m finally ready to post the swatches. 🙂
Orly Mermaid Tale:
Mermaid Tale is a mixture of green (I would guess 90%) and turquoise micro, small round and medium hex glitter. It’s in a clear base which makes it versatile enough to wear alone or layered over any color of polish.
This is a little thick, but not problematic. The glitter is dense and would reach full opacity in about 3 healthy coats. I think if you wanted it opaque it would be awfully thick, though, so layering is going to be your best bet here. I wanted to put this over a base color for that reason and because I didn’t want to use up too much polish. What? I’m a hoarder!! haha. I almost always put a base color under my glitter, even when I wear it opaque because I hate having that naked front edge of my nails. Glitter just doesn’t wrap tips, y’know? And I HATE how naked tips look. Okay, okay, I’m a hoarder and OCD. :p
Yes, Please!or No, Thank You:
Yes, Please!!! I love the slightly different colors of glitters and the three different sizes of glitter. Even when layered over the blue polish it was super sparkly. I can see myself wearing this over black and loving it, too 🙂
Let me know what you think! These polishes should be available where ever Orlys are sold starting today! 🙂 Keep your eye out for my reviews of the rest of these glitters. Thanks for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!!
