Born Pretty Store Mermaid Tears Magnetic Gel Nail Polish ~ Swatch and Review

Hi lovelies! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve had Born Pretty Store on my blog, but I still use and love a ton of their products. I recently started using Gel Nail Polish, I was delighted to find how easy it is to use and it has a place even for people like me who change their polish all the time! But I’ll get into that more after we look at this gorgeous magnetic gel polish.

Mermaid Tears is described as a Chameleon Cat Eye Gel Nail Polish in a clear base that shifts purple to teal blue when a magnet is applied to it. Since this is a clear base you can apply it over any color, preferably dark colors. In my swatches I’m wearing one coat over a black base. Sealed with Gelish Gel Top Coat.

I had to contort my hand all sorts of ways to capture the purple magnetic shift, but it’s there. So pretty! 

So why would someone like me who changes their polish all the time like Gel Polish? Well there are a few reasons. 1) I like the brilliant shine you get from gel that doesn’t dull over time; 2) it is a great protective layer for those with weak or peeling nails. It allows many to grow out their nails that couldn’t otherwise; and 3) my favorite part is I can wear gel on my cindy hand while I’m swatching and the acetone doesn’t really affect it, so I don’t have to redo my nails at the end of a long day. And removal is actually far easier than I thought it was. Just break the seal by roughing up the surface of the nail with a course nail file, soak your nails for approximately 10-15 minutes (I like to use nail clips to hold an acetone soaked cotton ball on the nail.. easy peasy!), gently scrape off any excess and apply your favorite cuticle oil to rehydrate your nails.
