Review: Sweet Heart Polish Mermaid's Magic

Press sample.

Today I have a gorgeous polish to show you! This one is another Sweet Heart Polish by the name of Mermaid's Magic. Here's the shop description:

"Mermaid's a green/blue, slightly holographic shifting polish that shimmers almost teal in the sun, with large turquoise holographic dots, sapphire squares, teal circles, and blue square glitter."

 I would have to describe this polish as an iridescent scattered holo, with the glitters as described. As you can tell by my swatches, I tried this out originally over black and white - and even considered doing a gradient with those two colors. It does look pretty amazing over black and white (it reminds me of snow!) but I noticed that some other bloggers had also decided to do just that same thing and so I had to be different.

With Mike's help, I went with 1 coat of Kleancolor Neon Pink as my base and 1 coat of Ciate Fit for a Queen on the accent. Then I just applied 1 coat of Mermaid's Magic and topped it off with Seche Vite. The Seche did shrink a little bit unfortunately, but otherwise this manicure lasted about a week with minimal chipping.

Mermaid's Magic transformed Neon Pink into a very pretty softer pink. Fit for a Queen is sort of a frosty metallic, which I will admit did eat up some of the holo and iridescence of Mermaid's Magic but I still felt this looked really pretty.

My only complaint with this polish is that once again I did have to fish around for some of the larger glitters. Otherwise, no problems!

 (Please pardon the shininess of my fingers.. it's cuticle oil.)

(also please pardon the little 'dent' on my accent nail.. not sure how I did that!)


Here's a close up of the pretty glitters.. and yes you can see some of the holo sparkle!
