When I first Deborah Lippmann Mermaid's Dream I was intrigued. I was not intrigued enough to pay $18 for it though. I was really excited to hear that dupe was discovered at Urban Outfitters. I stalked the store for a bit, and it took me awhile to find it, but I eventually did! They sell their polishes 2 for $8, so $4 vs. $18. It's a no brainer.
Sea Dust is a seafoam green foil with small bright blue hex glitters mixed in.
This is certainly a unique polish as far as finish and appearance. I was worried with this polish that it would be gritty as far as texture. I find that the foil finish of this and how the light reflects off those particles gives it the appearance of having texture. This was actually smooth on the nail. I love these colors, and I'm glad I found this alternative polish! I don't think they're exact dupes, but they're pretty darn close. You can find a comparison on Mara in Polishland.
OOoOH! so pretty! I don't know how the Deborah Lippmann looks like, but honestly after seeing this one, I don't care, lol!ReplyDelete
Ohhhh, I'll have to see if I can order this online. This is a close enough dupe for me!ReplyDelete
This is the second DL dupe I'm seeing today! And it's pretty darn close to the original not to spend the 18$!ReplyDelete
So gorgeous!! I agree, $4 is definitely a no brainer. Looks great on you Stephanie!ReplyDelete
I *try* to not let the hype of expensive polishes to suck me in so I can try to wait for someone to make a dupe. I was really happy I waited and got this one.ReplyDelete
i've been dying for mermaid's dream, too. i will have to start looking at uo for this one.ReplyDelete
I need this! Thank you so much for finding a dupe :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for the mention! you're right, They are very close! They have also another DL dupe, Dust, perfect if you have to pick two for the promo!!ReplyDelete
This does look like it is textured, I experienced the same thing and it's so weird. Gorgeous polish though :).ReplyDelete
