Well, it seems that this collection actually debuted in the Summer of 2011 but for some reason, it just came out in my local supermarket… go figure.  There were eight polishes released in the Mermaids Cove Collection but I only picked up five colors, as the other ones didn’t really ‘speak’ to me.

I picked up some at my local supermarket for $1.99, which is the regular price of the Fast Dry line of polishes.  Can you still find these?  I am not entirely sure, but if you see the display, go take a closer look at the beautiful colors available.

Diving for Pearls is a shimmery green with a slight blue tone… basically a green teal.  I have did not have any issues with the brush in this bottle nor the formula.  On the swatches, I have used two coats on the nails and three coats on the nail wheel.  The bottle contains .46 fl oz / 13.5 ml and it is easy to open and comfortable to hold.

Here are the nail wheel swatches…

I hope these swatches have helped you decide whether or not you want to pick up Diving for Pearls.  I know that I’m glad I did since it is a really beautiful color.  I was in France in the Summer of 2011 so I was fortunate to be able to pick these up now.

Toodles til next time…
