Deborah Lippman's Mermaid's Dream

Good Morning Dears!

I hope you have all had a great weekend. I want to take a minute to thank everyone that was involved with Fish Egg Friday and everyone that took the time to comment or even just read all of the posts that were done throughout the nail polish community two days ago. This community is something really special and I feel absolutely honoured to be a part of it. The way that everyone banded together so quickly for the cause makes my heart melt a little :) I love absolutely everyone that I have met through this and basically you all rock! Ok ok enough of the mushy stuff onto the polish :) 


Today I have Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid's Dream to show you. As soon as I saw this polish hit the web I knew I needed it before I had even seen a swatch on a nail. It seriously is completely unique and a complete stunner. This polish is so complex that it really is hard to describe. It is a sea foam green base with a pearly, metallic, frost like finish that somehow does not end up streaky. Then there is blue and gold micro shimmer, with large blue glitter floating through it.

This was an absolute dream to apply. It needed 3 coats to become fully opaque, but there was no clean up needed. The polish really builds on itself and ends up looking exactly like what I would picture a mermaid's tail to look like.

I am completely in love with this. I know I have been saying that about a lot of polishes lately, but look at them!? People just keep creating some absolutely gorgeous Treasuries! This is a rather hungry glitter. You would probably need a coat of Gelous and a coat of two of SV to get this perfectly smooth.

Also don't you love the shape of the DL bottles? They are so pretty, I wish all my polishes came in these square beauties.

Mermaid's Dream can be purchased at a variety of high-end retailers, directly from Deborah Lippmann's e-store and Nail Polish Canada. It will cost you $18 USD directly from Deborah Lippmann and $22 CAN from Nail Polish Canada. Yes it is a pricey polish, but it really is a beautiful one. I anticipate this will be making a number of appearances this summer on my nails!

Do you love this as much as I do?

Sincerely Stephanie

  1. it's a great shade on you but i'm just not a fan of this gritty glitter/frosty finish. I feel like I'm the only one though because every blogger is raving about it!!!
    I do love the colour combo, and if it was a creme base with shimmer running through and the glitter I'd be on board for sure.

    1. Fair enough! I'm normally not a frost lover at all, but this one with all the shimmer and glitter really spoke to me! I'm sure there will be creme or jelly versions of this coming out in the next few months :)

    1. Thanks LabMuffin! They are pricey, I totally lucked out on this one and got it on eBay. The seller was selling 5 DL's for $50 and free shipping and this and Sweet Dreams happened to be in there.
