Guest Post: Chantal's Splurge-Worthy Polish Pick

Friday, August 14, 2015

Hi everyone!

I'm Chantal from Chantal's Corner and I'm excited to be a guest for Stephanie as part of the Canadian Beauty Bloggers' monthly guest posts. Our theme this month is worth the splurge and I'm showing you a nail polish I think is worth every penny: Deborah Lippmann "Mermaid's Dream".

The wand on this bottle is a bit short and the brush is a bit small, but with this nail polish the brush works great.

This colour is described as a seafoam splendor (glittered shimmer). Here is a macro shot so you can see it better.

It really feels mermaid-y and magical, don't you agree?

It really comes to life in the sunlight, but the camera doesn't quite catch it's full sparkliness.

This polish is fully opaque with two coats, but since I was taking pictures up close I used three coats. I then finished it off with a generous layour of Gelous Nail Gel Coat followed by a generous layour of CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat. Glitter polishes tend to have bumpy finishes and I love a smooth finish so I always layer on the top coats.

Isn't it just gorgeous?!?

I'm cheap when it comes to nail polish and I have a really hard time paying more than $5 for a bottle, and this one at $22 is definitely out of my range. I did manage to buy it at 20% off, but that's still way over my $5 limit. However, this polish is absolutely gorgeous and absolutely worth it in my books!

What do you think?

What a gorgeous polish! I usually cringe at paying more than $5 for a polish too, but this one is definitely going on my wishlist. Great pick and post, Chantal! --Stephanie
