Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday! I'm calling these "Mermaid" nails because I've managed to create a reasonable dupe of Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid's Dream, which retails for $18.
On my index and pinky fingers, I have two coats of Zoya Charla. On my thumbs, middle, and ring fingers I had two coats of Zoya Zuza topped with a brand new Ulta polish: Love Fern! Love Fern is teal microglitter and small round glitter in a clear base.
I love accent manis where everything ties together seamlessly and you can't tell which nails are supposed to be the accents. Honestly, I can't tell you which is which in this one. They both look awesome! In real life, there difference between the nails isn't as obvious as I would like, but it looks good in pictures and sometimes I feel like that's all that matters when you're a blogger.. lol!
I definitely had to double up on my basecoat because both Charla and Zuza have stained my nails horribly in the past. Also, my nails were completely smooth with one layer of top coat, which is always a plus when you're dealing with glitter.
Here's a pic of Ulta Love Fern on its own. I can't remember exactly, but I want to say this is 5-6 coats. Clearly, it will never build up to opacity, which is kind of a bummer because it looks like it would have a colored base in the bottle.
And here's a bottle shot of the polishes I used. They're sooo pretty! I definitely recommend grabbing Love Fern as soon as you see it!
