Deborah Lippmann Mermaid's Dream

Hello perky ones! This post will be quick 'cause I'm exhausted and the weather here is really bad, so I'm expecting to lose power any time. Are you having a good weekend? Let me know! If you have a twitter, I'd love to hear from you. Took me a while to figure out what the heck a tweet was, but now I really like it! @Perkypolisher, if anyone is interested. OKAY, onto this amazing polish!

This is Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid's Dream. This is the first polish I dared spend $18 on, and though the total made me almost vom dot com, it was worth it. I did two coats over Zoya Wednesday. Mermaid's Dream is pretty thin and dries very, very quickly. I don't really know how to describe it, but it has tiny tiny gold flecks and blue glitters in a foil-like seafoam green base. Whatever, it's beyond gorgeous. This is in my top 10 favorite polishes ever. Plus, the bottle is so pretty!!

I hope you like it as much as I do. I have worn Mermaid's Dream for three days now, each a full work day, and I only have ONE nail with a chip. I am forever groaning over chips and ruined manis because work annihilates my nails, but this baby... wow. I haven't changed this mani because it still looks so good. This NEVER happens for me. I am experimenting with top coats, so I used a coat of Seche Vite and then a coat of Poshe. Maybe that's the reason? I dunno, but I intend to test the theory soon. I'll letcha know! ;)

I'm rambling so that probably means it's time for bed. What do you think of Mermaid's Dream? Am I crazy to pay $18 for one polish? Let me know!




  1. you're not crazy Deborah is worth it :) i absolutely love this color and its what i have on my .. it looks amazing on you <3

  2. Wow, this is lovely. I can't bring myself to spend that much on a polish... I just can't. I am hoping a dupe comes out soon, lol.

  3. I am lusting after this one! Thanks for posting pics. I can live vicariously through you until I bring myself to shell out the $22 CAD for this one!
