The Mermaids Of Lake Michigan

A note from the maker:

Three mermaids, named for the three main little girls in my life (my two daughters and my best friends daughter, who is like my niece).  If there is water in the vicinity, they are in it.  All set in a variation of teal, the shimmer brings out the difference.  Buy your favorite or buy them all!

All photos in this post are taken under artificial light. I used Talon Super Swatch & Peel base coat by Nail Hoot, (a clear peel-able vinyl base), and all are topped with Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat. These polishes were provided for my honest review.


Bristol

The spitfire. A deep teal shot through with red to gold to green shifting shimmer and scattered holo.

2 coats + topcoat

I wore this one as a full mani for a few days after swatching, that's how much I love it! The base color is gorgeous and leans just slightly more green than my photos show. If you happen to love Essie "Go Overboard", you'll love this. It's a little darker and filled with shimmer and scattered holo. Yes please.


Helena

The leader. A green leaning teal filled with green to blue shifting shimmer and scattered holo.

2 coats + topcoat

Greeeen! And oh so shiny. This one was the most opaque and least jelly-like of the bunch, with great coverage. It has an almost metallic wet-look to it that I love.


Sophia

The healer and the most adaptable.  A blue leaning teal filled with glowing blue to purple shifting shimmer with scattered holo.

2 coats + topcoat

Shiftier than I expected! In the best way. This is a beautiful rich, squishy blue-ish teal jelly that truly looks like a body of water. It has a ton of depth and I love the purple you get at certain angles. Really beautiful!


Don't forget that these beauties are limited edition, so once they're taken down on  October 2nd, they're gone for good! Do yourselves a favor and just grab them when they release tomorrow, Friday September 15th at 2 PM EST in the Great Lakes Lacquer shop. Trust me, you won't regret it!
