Hit Me With Your Best Mermaid

Hello, Fireflies!

If you liked yesterday's Mermaid, maybe you'll like today's, too.  I know I do.  Deborah Lippmann does it again with Million Dollar Mermaid, a pale orange polish with darker orange glitter and a gold shimmer.


Ermagerd shimmerd!


I decided to play with Deborah Lippmann Hit Me With Your Best Shot, the Pat Benetar-inspired metallic grey polish.


I love playing with textures, and there's something interesting about pairing the soft, glowing Million Dollar Mermaid with the harder, edgier Hit Me With Your Best Shot.

Do you like playing with textures in your nail art?

    1. I never would have thought I'd be an orange polish fan, but they're some of my faves.

    1. I had a best friend back in the day who was a huge Pat Benetar fan, and he converted me. I have to admit, I was sold on the name, too!

    1. Thanks! I'm sure it's been done before, I'm really not that creative! I do love using stripes to make the nail look longer and straighter, though!
