Accessorize Mermaid NOTD

This is from sunnier days- one of my favourite polishes of all time. Its blue/green/gold flecks are so mesmerizing, you'd be staring at your nails everytime you are out in the sun. I know I do :p
The sparkle is very silvery in the shade, and the polish itself seems to be quite cool toned
In sunlight, however, the gold flecks are more prominent, and the polish itself seems to be brighter, plus you can see turquoise reflects. Above swatch is free coats, and you can still see a bit of VNL. I prefer four coats, since it gets rid of VNL and gives more depth to the shade- it becomes greener.
Overall, this is a jewel of my extensive collection, I would happily buy it again and again. And again, and again.
