Sephora by OPI just put out their summer 2009 called Mermaid in the Shade that I am excited to show you today. The formula on all of these was really nice, I had no problems. Some were a bit sheer but that was remedied by an extra coat (or two). All pics taken in sun with no top coat.
Water Baby is a light silvery white color with a pearl effect and fine shimmer. This one went on very sheer as I had expected it would so I used three coats. It’s very pretty, though I think I have a lot of other colors like it.
Just a Fairy-Tail is way cooler in person than in this picture. It’s a silver polish jam packed with super fine green and blue glitter and it has a great rainbow flash to it. It was fairly sheer so I used three coats.
Lagoon-a Beach was much lighter than I had expected it to be, though I still like it a lot. It’s a pretty light blue, also jam packed with very fine multi-colored glitter and it too has the rainbow flash effect. This was three coats.
Underwater Fantasy was probably my favorite one. The color is a cornflower blue (which is one of my favorite colors) and it’s got tons of fine glitter and flashes different colors. It was definitely more opaque than the previous ones I showed, but I still needed a good three coats.
Mermaid To Order is awesome and I have nothing else like it! This is a metallic peacock color that was SO opaque I really could have done just one coat, but did two anyway. I didn’t have streaking issues like I do with most metallics either!
Blue Grotto is a very pretty navy blue creme that was very opaque. I really like this cool, though I don’t really think it’s completely original. I can think of a few other recent medium blue cremes like Essie’s Mesmerize and Misa’s On The Edge that would be very close dupes to this. This was two coats.
Overall I am really happy with this collection, I love seeing the colors all together, so pretty!
