Today Johnie, makeup artist and blogger behind The Beauty Junkie, shares why you shouldn’t miss Sephora by OPI’s Mermaid to Order nail polish.
Remember Sephora’s Metro Chic? It was their OPI “it” color for Fall 2008, and its popularity made it hard to snag online or in stores for months. An interesting gray with a hint of purple, it quickly became one of my favorites.
Well, Sephora has done it again. Their latest “it” color for Summer 2009, judging by the attention it’s getting, is Mermaid to Order ($9), a color from the new Mermaid in the Shade collection.
The collection was just released online, and I have a few friends who helped me pull the color from stock they hadn’t yet put on the sales floor. They tell me I’m the first to own it in my area!
According to the Sephora sales associates I know, Mermaid to Order is the next Metro Chic — the color they’re all craving and raving about, and that includes me!
Sephora says the Mediterranean island of Capri inspired the Mermaid in the Shade collection, how it “captures the deep blues and aqua hues of the oceans.”
Mermaid to Order is described as a “shimmering deep green blue.” I love love love its gorgeous metallic finish!
The shade makes a beautiful mani or pedi color for summer, being particularly eye catching on piggies and perfect for summer!
If you haven’t picked it up yet, you better hurry. This one’s predicted to sell out fast.
Mermaid to Order retails for $9.
The Mermaid in the Shade collection includes five other can’t-miss shades as well. Next one I’d like to try: Underwater Fantasy. It’s a shimmering cornflower blue, and like the other colors in the collection, it’s limited additions (LE), so it won’t be here forever. 🙂
