Summer Nails: LVX Viridian and Sally Hansen Mermaid's Tale Nail Polish

Oceanic shades of green and blue are high on my hit list this summer. Basically if it looks like I could swim in it then I want to be wearing it on my eyes, body or nails, and this combo is pretty close to making all my dreams come true.
 
LVX Viridian Nail Polish Swatches
 
I've featured LVX before - they release a small edit of fashion led shades each season and for SS13, Veridian is definitely the standout.
 
Sally Hansen Mermaids Tale Nail Polish Swatches
 
This gorgeous seagreen is a stunner in its own right and, like all polishes from this brand, is '5 free' - meaning it's free from scary chemicals like Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluene, and Camphor. You'll find it on cloudtenbeauty for €12.99.

It was the perfect base colour for my current favourite from the (excellent) Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure line.  Mermaid's Tale (€8.99)  has already made an appearance on the blog but today you get to see on the nails, in all of its sultry and shimmering finery. Isn't it dreamy?

Happy sigh.

So, lightning poll time: what are YOU wearing on your nails RIGHT
NOW?

Not a nail polish person but I would totally wear my nails like that!

As of right now, just wearing a clear polish :)

Cute, I love the glitter on top! I am wearing a Boujour 1 second nail polish right now. I think it's called red poppy something. It's an orangey red.

Absolutely gorgeous, I love that Sally Hansen polish too - it's an almost bang on dupe for Essence Blue Addicted that was discontinued for some unknown ridiculous reason. Love it!

Sue said...

Love it! Love the background color and the idea of putting glitters on top. I find it classy and elegant.

So pretty Emma! Love the combo.
I haven't worn polish in months now! For some reason, I just can't be bothered, but lately all the summery colours are starting to catch my eye!

I just read your comment on Joanna G's site that you tried my brownie recipe - thanks and so glad they were a big hit at your event :)

I'm actually wearing a Sally Hansen Complete Manicure polish too in Gilty Pleasure! They're such an amazing formula!

Love these two colours, I gotta get some more Sally Hansen polishes!
