Hey dolls, I’ve finally gotten around to trying OPI’s Mermaid’s Tears. This color is a very dusty, muted teal-like green from the Pirates of the Caribbean collection. Mermaid’s Tears was one of the few colors from this collection that was a must have for me! No complaints with the formula on this one; I applied 2 easy coats and had full opacity. I don’t own a lot of OPI polishes, so I have to get readjusted to the pro wide brush every time I use it. I had to take so many pictures of this shade because my camera kept bringing out the blue tones, especially outside in the sunlight. A picture I took using my blackberry was truest to this shade.

I really love this color and I’m sure I’ll get lots of wear from it. I was so disappointed when it got messed up after only 1 day of wear. I had to wash and style my hair, so I had some tip wear afterwards. While sitting under the dryer, I figured I’d use Turquoise Shatter to hide the imperfections. Bad choice…not only did it not shatter; it lifted up Mermaid’s Tears and caused it to peel completely off the nail!

Crazy right?!? So much for not changing my nails. Has this ever happened to you when using a shatter/crackle?
