The mermaids are up all night

Hello again! I hope everyone’s week is going well so far. I don’t have much today, let’s get right into the swatches!


Let’s start with one super opaque coat of China Glaze Up All Night. I’ve worn this before as part of a more complex manicure, but I’d yet to swatch it on its own until now. It’s an incredibly dark inky blue, with a cobalt shimmer that makes it look lit from within.


I added Icing Aspiring Mermaid, a bright aqua shimmer, on top. I’d intended to layer this for an extra shimmery effect, but Aspiring Mermaid ended up being more opaque than I’d originally thought, and too streaky to layer with. This is three coats on top of Up All Night. The under layer was definitely not necessary, haha.

That’s all for today! Thanks for reading. ❤
