My purple mermaid

"Mermaid scale", "glass flecked" nail polish is all the rage now and Zoya's "Mimi" is my new favorite purple, a perfect purple mermaid in a bottle.

2 coats and 1 coat of Seche.

Deep purple scales, dark and delicious!

After 3 days I wasn't ready to say good bye, so I gave Mimi a little kick!

1 coat of Nfu-Oh 51....gorgeous!

What makes flakies better?...add it! But beware ladies, this manicure was a pain to remove....P.I.T.A.

Pin It!

I love Mimi! I didn't think removal was that bad, though; I just hold the cotton pad on my nails for a bit before wiping and it comes off fine.

Removbal of Mimi alone is no problem wikth the "foil method", but with the Nfu-Oh on top, I had to add a couple more minutes to the "foil method" :)

It was worth it!

Ahh I can imagine that was nasty to remove lol. But with that result on your nails, it's worth it, because thats an awesome combination!
