OPI Mermaid’s Tears: NOTD

Here’s a little NOTD from a recent Lena White order I made when they had a sale on some OPI colours – I think each bottle was about £5, a lot cheaper than they normally are. So I picked up Mermaid’s Tears, It’s My Year and Stranger Tides.

First up for a NOTD is Mermaid’s Tears:

I love how it’s a slightly subdued turquoise – a slightly more toned down pastel/bright. It applied really nicely, two coats and dried quick enough that I painted my nails about an hour before bed and didn’t wake up with sheet imprints on the nails (which with some polishes manages to happen even a couple of hours after painting).

It’s also lasted really well, no chipping – just a small amount of tip wear so I did my recent ‘manicure lengthening’ trick of sticking a glitter coat over the top so the tip wear doesn’t show… a couple more days wear before removing and repainting (plus stops me getting bored of the colour).

    I’ve been really into turquoise lately. This needs to be added to the collection.

    This colour looks really gorgeous. I also love the name, and that price is great!
