When I first saw Do The Mermaid, I knew I had to have it. Purple is one of my favorite colors and purple version of Mermaid's Dream would be perfection in my eyes. I don't frequent Deborah Lippmann as a brand in my stash. The prices are way too steep for me, so Deborah Lippmann's are usually holiday and birthday treats. I picked Do The Mermaid for my birthday, and I think it was a good purchase!
Do The Mermaid
Do The Mermaid is a soft lavender base with gold shimmer and purple glitters.
Color: This is what I'm talking about! I love a good lavender to begin with, but the addition of the glitter and shimmer really makes this very special. The balance of the color, glitter, and shimmer is perfect. Can you imagine if this what Mermaid's Eyes looked like? I so wish that one was like this!
Formula: The formula was easy to apply. This is on the sheer side, that is my only complaint. I used 3 coats in the swatch above.
Price: I purchased this for $19.00 from Nordstrom. Yes, this is very expensive, but personally I really like it. I would love if Revlon or Urban Outfitters tried to replicate this one like they typically do with other Deborah Lippmanns.
Overall: I really enjoy this polish. I love the color and the glitter and shimmer make it magical for me. The formula is a bit of a downer, which will keep it from getting a perfect score for me. The same goes with the price, at $19.00, I expect perfect formula. That being said, the color can't be beat!
