Deborah Lippmann The Mermaids is new for summer 2013. This new collection features four new shades, all inspired by last year’s fan favorite Mermaid’s Dream.
Deborah wanted to create a new family of colors inspired by the same glittery, shimmery formula of Mermaid’s Dream. I think she did just perfectly! These all definitely seem to belong to the same family.
The one I do not have is called Mermaid’s Eyes, which is described as a seaside cerulean. The other three have a pretty nice formula. They all were just two coats. I got a good amount of base and glitter coverage with each coat, and there was no sliding of the glitter with the second coat after waiting about 2 minutes in-between. These actually look a bit less gritty and lumpy to me than Mermaid’s Dream, so that’s a bonus!
