Orly Mermaid Tale is an outstanding green glitter

After the China Glaze Chroma Glitters, I hadn't seen a great glitter nail polish made by the major American brands.  I'm so happy that Orly has decided to bring us glitter lovers something to play with.  Too bad this is the only one I really liked from this collection, so far.  I have been waiting to see the others, because aparently there are 22 glitters, but they are nowhere to be found.  Out of the 6 from the Beauty Supply I picked up 5, but I only loved Mermaid Tale, I'll let the pictures show you why.

Layering Order:
1 coat Haley's Comet
2 coats Orly Mermaid Tale
1 coat Poshe Fast Drying Basecoat
Barielle Manicure Extender


  1. *sigh* That is pretty and shiny. I wasn't going to get any but now I may need that one. I think I may hate you but in a good way.

    1. This is the only one (in my opinion) with a good formula, the other ones are either a watery mess or taco :(

    2. They did kind of look 'eh' from a few photos I have seen. Does this have a clear base or is it tinted? It looks amazing on you!

    3. It's clear :)

      P.S.: Sometimes I hate your swatches too, in a good way!

    4. You sweet talker you! Thanks!

  2. wow it looks like you have precious stones on your nails, gorgeous!

  3. this is the only one I got from this collection, it is so pretty!

  4. Loooove this glitter. It's so jam packed!!
