NOTD: SH Mermaid’s Tale over Blue My Mind

Posted on: April 12, 2013

Mermaid’s Tale from Sally Hansen CSM over Blue My Mind. Okay, I’ll just say it, I know you are thinking it, I’m such a poser when it comes to glitter polish. I do not like the looks of it on me and to tell you the truth I don’t like the looks of it on too many people. There I said it. I am not a fan of glitter nail polish. Any of you surprised?

I added one coat of Mermaid’s Tale over my Blue My Mind manicure from yesterday. It is so pretty and Mermaid’s Tale is the perfect name for it. I do think with the name being tale and not tail this polish will probably get lost in any Internet searching for Mermaid’s Tale/Tail type polish and that is too bad because this is a really pretty glitter. It is in a medium blue, sheer base with large lime green & light blue hex glitter, the background is a micro glitter of a very bright blue along with a dark blue. (I painted some on a piece of paper and used my loupe to really look at what it is made up of).

I tried to get a good picture of the bottle, but with my camera it wasn’t possible. This is one of those polishes when you see it, you will know what I’m talking about. I think this would be pretty over almost any color of nail polish. I know I will use it again. Mermaid’s Tale has officially joined my glitter family, it’s a small family but we are happy to have this one in the collection.
I give Mermaid’s Tale a 5/5 stars. ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ The formula was easy to work with, dried pretty fast and did not pool down to my cuticles. With just one stroke of the brush for each nail, it did its magic.
Sally Hansen CSM polish can be found in most drug stores and sell for $7.99. (often times they have coupon offers so be sure to ask your sales associate if you don’t have a coupon they just might!)

Day 2 of Blue My Mind from the reformulated Sally Hansen CSM line is holding up well. Remember I did not use a top coat with this and there is no tip wear that I can see and certainly no chips. So far, so good. If I keep this polish on, I will keep you updated.

Have you had a chance to try out the new formulation of the Sally Hansen CSM line? If so, what are your thoughts? I’d love to know.

๐Ÿ’… As always, thanks for stopping by.

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
