Jesse's Girl Mermaid's Lagoon


Today I've got pictures of my Jesse's Girl Manicure. When I first saw swatches of Mermaid's Lagoon I was super excited about the copper shimmer in it. However, once I got it on my nails I could barely see the shimmer even in strong sunlight. I remedied this by adding Orly Fifty Four over the top for a pretty copper shimmer. Two coats of color with one coat of Orly on top and Orly topcoat.

Sorry about the lobster hands! I don't know what happened with the lighting here but the polish color is pretty close.


  1. I just put this on today! I had to try twice because the first time I used it, I finished it off with a top coat and it turned bright green? Weird! So the second try I did a 'bonder sandwhich' one coat of Orly Bonder, one coat Mermaids Lagoon, Bonder, Mermaids Lagoon. It took longer, but the shimmer is much more visible now too! Looks good on you!

  2. Such a pretty polish! I do not own any of this brand! Great layering!

  3. Weird about the green! What topcoat where you using that turned it green?

    Thanks! I'm pretty sure this is a Rite Aid only brand.

  4. That sucks about the shimmer, I actually put this one back an got stiletto instead.
