Iridescent polishes for “ mermaid nail ” .
OPI Nail Polish in Fireflies
I very like how this polish looks when it reflects light. It ’ randomness kind of like the inwardly of an oyster ’ mho shell. It ’ s in truth pretty and subtle. For me, possibly barely a little moment excessively yellow though .
* Mirage Nail Polish in Cotton Candy
I ’ m a person who loves packaging and this international relations and security network ’ t the prettiest bottle. With that said, it was actually my favorite iridescent polish because it was so luminosity and brooding. In this photograph I am wearing a coat of lavender under it. I think it would be in truth pretty with a root of white as well. Legit mermaid nails !

* Revlon Transforming Effects in Matte Pearl Glaze
This polish is the entirely one I found at Walgreens. It ’ south got a very weird, fun freshness to it. I ’ m on the fence with felt polish ( sometimes I love them, sometimes not sol much ). personally, I love it even more with a glistening top coat like this :
It ’ randomness subtle, but indeed pretty.
