Swatch: OPI Mermaid's Tears

Hey everyone! Today's post is a Swatch post of OPI's Mermaid's Tears. It's raining outside hard enough that I can hear it bashing on my roof and I saw the bottle of Mermaid's Tears and went hmmm, perfect! This polish is from the new(ish) collection OPI did for the most recent Pirates of the Caribbean movie (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides). It's a really beautiful sea-foam green color and, though the application was a little annoying, it dries fast and leaves you with a great manicure. 

Application: I needed 3 coats (which I usually do anyway) and on some of the nails you could see the different layer lines (I guess I didn't really apply it as well as I thought!)

Color: Beautiful! I didn't have anything exactly like it in my collection. It was a worthy addition.

Drying/Hardening: Pretty quick but not as quick as Zoya polishes. Does anyone else feel like Zoya polishes are little fast-drying freaks of nature??

Wear: Surprisingly it lasted through a night at the diner (I'm a server) without major chips and that was WITHOUT a top coat. I'd say at the very least I'm very impressed!

Here are the pictures!! Does anyone else own this polish/ones from this collection?


  1. I LOVE this color. I have the whole collection and love them all.
