Would you or wouldn’t you? Better yet, should you? Like many lipsticks, the nail lacquers that look prettiest in their packaging don’t seem to translate quite as well to reality. I adore the name “Mermaid’s Dream,” and I’m loving gazing into this shimmering seafoam-meets-aqua blue, flecked with specks of indigo glitter. But on my hands? The connotation is more eight-grade girl than washed-ashore maiden.
If there’s anytime, summer is it for getting a playful manicure. I applaud Deborah Lippmann for her bold way with glitter polishes; many of her confections resemble a party-in-a-bottle. Is this a party you’d like to attend or do you politely decline? At Nordstromfor $18.
