Purple Mermaids

Hello, Fireflies!

Today and tomorrow, I have a couple of looks to share that I did with Deborah Lippmann polishes.  I was entranced by the Mermaid collection, what with the glitter and shimmer and stuff.  I picked up a couple of those and a few others when they went on sale

Do The Mermaid is purple with purple microglitter.  Yum.


Pretty.  Right up my alley, as it were.


I also picked up Deborah Lippmann Stormy Weather, a grey creme.  I'm glad I got it on sale.  It's... okay.  Nothing to write home about, and I love grey cremes.  Not bad, I'm saying. Just nothing special for the hefty price tag, either.


I did a French tip first, and then added the stripe down the middle.  Not sure what I was going for.  Something abstract, I'm sure.  Maybe I was drinking that night?  Seems rather silly, now.  ;)

Have you ever done a manicure and later, when you looked at it (or a pix) you wondered what you were thinking?

  8. I have both of those and I think Stormy Weather is one of the most beautiful cremes I've used.

    1. Purple and grey = <3 but I'm not sure that Do The Mermaid doesn't shine more on its own.
