1 comment

Hiya guys! I don't know about you, but I have been itching for the summer sun so much recently. I think because it's Jersey has been so dreary the past few months. All rain and hardly any sunshine, it's a real bummer. Luckily we are fast approaching summer, which not only means a change of weather but also a wave of new polish collections. Today I'm sharing swatches for the Let's Be Mermaids Summer 2017 Collection by Sassy Pants Polish, which consists of seven shimmering jelly shades. If you’re like me and completely obsessed with all things mythical and mermaid you're going to love this collection. Let's release our inner mermaids and dive right into the swatches!

Mermaid Tails can be described as a rich and vibrant turquoise scattered holographic jelly polish decorated with UCC blue/purple/red flakies. Starting off this review with one of my favorites and my recommendation as must-have in this collection. It truly captures the essence and inspiration of a mermaid in one bottle! My photos don't do the sparkle and shine any justice, this is quite the stunner under natural lighting.

The formula has a sheer application that builds-up well for full coverage. There is a slight visible nail line, but nicely disguised with the sparkle and flakies. It has a great balanced consistency, not too thick or too thin. It dries to a very high-shine finish on its own. Shown in three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Mermaid Magic can be described as a bewitching regal purple scattered holographic jelly polish with assorted purple and pink holographic and metallic glitters as well as purple to white shifting iridescent flakes. And here we have my second must-have pick from this collection! Yes, it's pretty synonymous to have purple in a mermaid collection. But that doesn't stop this from being a stunning shade all the same. The combination of the flakies and glitters bounce really well of the base giving it such a pop factor! Especially in direct sunlight.

The formula has a similar sheer application to that of Mermaid Tails. Consistency felt very balanced as well and easy to work with to layer. It dries to a very minimal gritty finish that smooths out perfectly with topcoat. Shown in three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Mermaid Tears can be described as a seafoam green scattered holographic polish with blue-green iridescent hex glitters, aqua hex glitters, turquoise holographic micro glitters, and blue/green chameleon shifting shimmer. To be perfectly honest, this one is my least favorite in this collection as I don't particular care for the combination of hues and glitters. That said, I cannot deny the fact that it really captures the underwater sea life very well. In retrospect, I actually think this would make a gorgeous topper over a cream base or gradient. Definitely looking forward to giving that a try in the near future.

The formula has a very sheer application, much more than the rest of the collection. If applied with a light-hand it will have a visible nail line. Consistency wise it leans on the thick side due to all the glitters, but it's manageable for layering. It's definitely jam-packed with glitters, but they spread evenly on the nail and do not clump. The finish dries down minimally gritty, but can be smoothed down with topcoat. Shown in three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Mermaids of the Ocean Blue can be described as a deep sky blue scattered holographic jelly polish with blue holographic hex glitters and an assortment of iridescent glitters and purple to white shifting iridescent flakes.

The formula has a sheer application that builds-up well for full coverage. Consistency leans on the thin side, but it helps with the application since this is so glitter packed. There are a lot of larger glitters in the base that don't need any fishing, plenty per brush stroke without clumping. It dries down to a gritty finish, but smooths out after topcoat. Shown in three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Mermaid’s Dream can be described as a coral multi-color shifting shimmer polish with assorted orange-green iridescent shifting hex glitters. Initially I felt as if this one was a miss for me, but it definitely grew on me as I wore it more. It's one of the more unique shade combinations in this collection. There is so much shimmer it gives ends up giving a foil-like illusion. So while I don't think the color suits me, I still think it's a shade I'll be wearing to the beach this summer.

The formula has a sheer application that builds-up with ease for coverage. I did find that a light-handed application tends to leave a visible nail line. The consistency has a very balanced feel, which makes very easy to work with. There are some minimal brush strokes in the finish that mostly blend out after topcoat. Shown in three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Mermaid’s Curse can be described as a dark mystical black jelly base with shifting shimmers and a rainbow of UCC flakies. At first I wasn't too sure about a black shade in a mermaid/summer collection, but once I put it on I completely changed my tune. It's all about them flakies! It creates such a gorgeous contrast against the darkness of the base, it's really illuminating to say the least. And it's also a very unique way to capture the mermaid inspiration.

The formula has a sheer application, but builds-up really quickly for full coverage. The flakies felt a bit scarce, but I actually preferred it that way in this polish. Consistency wise it felt very balanced, not too thick or too thin. Very easy to work. It dries down to a high-shine, but gritty finish that can be smooth out perfectly after topcoat. Shown in two to three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Overall I really love the inspiration behind this collection, but moreso how each shade interprets a different aspect of the mermaid life. I've been swatching for this brand from the very beginning and I have to say this is one of her most creative collections. I love the variety in the hues, whilst still being very on point with the summer season. Of course there are some must-haves, which hands down have to go to Mermaid Tails and Mermaid Magic. But those are my favorites, now tell me which ones caught your eye?

To recap, the Let's Be Mermaids Summer 2017 Collection by Sassy Pants Polish will be releasing this Friday, June 9th at 2PM CST. Each full-size 15mL bottle retails for $12 and mini-size 7.5mL bottle for $8. The full-size collection can be purchased for $75 or the mini-size collection for $51.
