OPI Pirates of the Caribbean Collection: Mermaid's Tears

OPI Mermaid's Tears (2 coats)

I've been cheating on my Poshe topcoat for Seche Vite again. I know, I know, I often talk crap about Seche for the shrinkage that it gives me, but I decided to give it another chance. Well, I find that if I wrap my tips really well, I've been having manicures that last for several days with no chipping or peeling at all. After about 3 days I start to get slight shrinkage, but nothing too bad. I've also been loving Gelous from Sally's Beauty Supply. Since it is so thick it really strengthens my nails. So overall, I use Essie Sensitivity base coat, followed by a layer of Gelous, 2-3 layers of polish, followed by Seche. Awesome manicures! 

When I made an order from Transdesign (which is apparently Nailsupplies.us now) and bought a couple more from the Pirates of the Caribbean collection. Mermaid's Tears is a cool dusty pastel green creme that had such great application despite being a pastel color. It was quite pigmented and only needed 2 coats with no streaking or pulling of color. While I really like the color, I feel like it could be easily duped (and I would go for that since OPI polishes are quite expensive...even online). 

Yay, Deadliest Catch is on tonight!
