Orly Flash Glam FX- Mermaid Tale

Day 2 of my Orly Flash Glam FX Polishes (you can see yesterday's post with "Sashay My Way" here).

The 4 I picked up.

"Mermaid Tale" is a mix of large green hex glitter and small green glitters.  They are holographic and it seems that the large hexes are actually different shades of green:

No color is more beachy or oceanic than Zoya "Zuza" from the Summer 'Surf'' Collection!  I decided this must be the base for Mermaid Tale:

 Note- this is one layer---ONE layer of Zuza.  How awesome?

I then did one layer of 'Mermaid Tale' on top:



Those bottom hexes look like they are on fire!
I'm pretty happy with this combo and I love the fact that these dry smooth- no gritty glitter to annoy the crap out of you :D

Do you like Mermaid Tale?

  4. Hot damn MB, this combo is GORGEOUS! And the glitter dries smooth?! I'm so OCD about smooth polish, but hate having to apply 2 or 3 coats of top coat for glitters. I have Zuza, but I need Mermaid Tale now!

    1. Thanks Jessi! I hate rough glitter with a passion and refuse to use more top coat so I was happy that wasn't the case her. You really need Mermaid Tale, especially if you already have Zuza :)

  7. Ahhhh!!!!! SO glad I got this! I haven't [of course I haven't.] worn this yet but now I've no doubt that I will love it! ...maybe I'll do that in the morning since I'm so over the underwhelming ozotic I'm wearing now.

    I love that color combo, don't know if I have anything quite similar, will have to see what I've got. :)

  8. Damn...wish I could find Orly close to me, because you just know that I'd be all over this baby! Especially in light of the fact that I'm "Cancerian" and always wanted to be a mermaid, lol! I so love this combo you came up with (don't I love every combo you come up with?) and even my daughter - who was peeking over my shoulder at your swatches - said that it reminded her of mermaids...and she hadn't even seen the name, lol! Gorgeous, my friend!
