Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Mermaid's Tale

Oh, Mermaid's Tale.. I've looked high and low for you for months and I've finally found you! It was like a quest to get you, and I'm so happy that you're finally mine.

This gorgeous polish of glittery goodness from the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure line is most definitely a 'mermaid polish'. It's just like the scales of a mermaid tail.. hence the name!

I'm sorry that my application is less then stellar..! I admit that I was simply lazy.
Mermaid's Tale consists of a transluscent dark blue base with blue and green hex glitters, and smaller blue glitter as well. You'll need to use at least two coats (which is what I used) to get what you see in my photo, but I think three would be even better. Application was quite easy, and the hex glitters weren't troublesome. I also like the flat and wide brush this polish comes with.

I absolutely love this polish, and it's gotten a lot of compliments! It's also supposed to be a pretty good dupe of Deborah Lippmann's Across the Universe which is neat, too. So, what do you think of Mermaid's Tale?


  1. I don't have this polish but I've been looking for it! I do have Across the Universe. From what I can see in pictures Mermaid's Tale looks more opaque and like it has more glitter. But I can't quite tell because I don't own both!

    1. It took me such a long time to find it! It was never with the Sally Hansen display, and then I finally found it with a random summer nail picks display. It was worth the search, though!
