Essence ~ 09 Mermaid of the Galaxy and Essie ~ Pinking About You


Essence ~ 09 Mermaid of the Galaxy and Essie ~ Pinking About You
Sky blue shimmer and baby pink glitter in various sizes and shapes

“Mermaid of the Galaxy” is an addition to Essense’s “Out of Space Stories” collection; a collection that originally came out in Spring 2017. “Mermaid of the Galaxy” came out in early Spring 2018 and it’s a very beautiful sky blue shimmer polish.

The formula is good and I used two easy and fast drying coats for full opacity.

I decided to add glitter. I used Essie’s baby pink glitter called “Pinking About You” as my topper. It’s a polish I bought in a blog sale recently.

Here’s two coats of “Mermaid of the Galaxy” and a layer of “Pinking About You” on top. There’s also a layer of topcoat added.

This is “Mermaid of the Galaxy” on its own; it’s two coats and no topcoat yet. Isn’t it a pretty blue?

Here are the two sisters side by side.
