Sally Hansen Mermaid’s Tale – Dive in and Fall in Love!


I’m in love. Seriously, in love. When I first spotted this glittering bottle of polish sitting alone on the Shoppers Drug Mart shelf, I knew we were destined to be together! Oh, how rude of me, let me introduce you, this is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Mermaid’s Tale – somebody pinch me, I’m still not even convinced it’s real!


I may be late to the party on this, this might be an old shade that has been around forever and blogged about over and over – but it’s new to me and I’m going to gush about it! I mean LOOK at it! A deep sea, blue base with multiple sized glitter in green, blue and silvery shades with a jelly like finish. What more could you wish for in a polish named Mermaid’s Tale? I feel like I’ve dove into the ocean and have been surrounded by glittering, shimmering mermaids. And I honestly can’t stop looking at my hands!


Another bonus to this polish is it’s from one of my favourite brands and collections, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure. All of which are long wearing, apply incredibly smoothly and have a wide flat brush for easier application. Not to mention they are readily available at most drugstores and are only around $6.99!


Gah! I wish this photo did this polish some justice! I had a double whammy of the universe working against me in getting a good photo! 1. My camera battery died as I was taking photos, 2. it’s cloudy and ugly outside. I hope you can see that the effect is a genuine (what I imagine to be) Mermaid’s Tail. Even my boyfriend was impressed with the finish of this polish and he doesn’t care about any of my cosmetics products! I’m predicting that this is going to be my go-to polish for summer. I’m obsessed. And you will be too if you pick it up!
