NOTD: Deborah Lippmann Mermaid's Dream and new blog design!

Happy almost Friday! I have another polish to showcase from the swap I did with my friend recently. She has a great collection and I made out with some true goodies. One of them was Deborah Lippmann Mermaid's Dream. Mermaid's Dream is a frosted seafoam green metallic with small blue-green micro glitter and larger ocean blue glitter. I don'y usually wear colors like this; I tend to stay away from  frosted shades like this but this one surprised me.

MD has great coverage,which is rare with a glitter polish. I got away with two coats . It does have a gritty finish and is a top coat eater; I wound up using two coats of Seche Vite for a smooth finish. As you can see in the pic below the polish has flashes of gold throughout. I really wish this had translated onto the nails a bit more.

Like I stated earlier, not normally a color I would reach for but I was pleasantly surprised by how nice it looks on my skin tone. 

Deborah Lippmann retails for $16-18 and is sold at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and the Deborah Lippmann website.  

In other news, as you can see I have changed the design of the blog. I would love to know what you all think of it so please leave a comment and let me know!
