Reader’s Choice Monday ~ Orly Mermaid Tale

Hey dolls! The winner for this week’s reader’s choice was Orly Mermaid Tale with 50% of the votes. Mermaid Tale is filled with various sized green glitter, light blue hexes, and a little holo sparkle. Mermaid Tale’s formula was good; the glitter was easily placed on the nail and did not have an extremely gritty finish. The glitter is not as dense as I thought it was going to be, but I prefer the way it looks with just one coat. In the pictures below, I am wearing Mermaid Tale over Essie Turquoise and Caicos.

I love how Mermaid Tale looks like crushed emeralds. I’m pretty impressed with the Orly Flash Glam Fx glitters that I have purchased so far. These look similar to what we see from a lot of indie sellers. I knew it wouldn’t be long before the bigger brands would catch up.

Now to discuss the base color, Essie Turquoise and Caicos. I’ve had this shade for some time without ever wearing it. It is so gorgeous in the bottle, but the formula was a streaky mess. I had to use four coats, yes four, to get it to look somewhat decent. I’m not sure if I have a bad bottle, but I feel like everyone raves about this color.

Turquoise and Caicos is such a pretty color! It’s too bad though; the formula is a pain, so I won’t be keeping this one. I’m pretty sure I have something similar to it (if I don’t, that means I need to look for a replacement). Did you have any issues with Turquoise and Caicos?

For this week’s poll, I have three untried Zoyas for you. Please take a second to vote in the poll below. Hope you all have a great start to the week!
