Mani Monday – DND Gel DC Mermaid Collection in Dark Aqua

September 20, 2021

Although gel manicures do tend to destroy my nails for several weeks after removal, it’s hard for me to not want the durability and longevity that comes with it when I travel. So, that is what I did before I headed out to Charlotte, NC for a work trip this past week!

🔘 Base coat: @madam_glam Soak-Off Base Gel ($19.95 –
🔘 Color: @dndgel DC Mermaid Collection in Dark Aqua (.5 ounces for $7.60 –
⚫️ Applies like a normal gel polish but has premixed mirror dust powder to give nails a shimmery sparkle
⚫️ DC gel polish lasts for up to 3 weeks with no chipping or peeling, and soaks completely off in only 10 – 15 minutes
🔘 Top coat: @madam_glam Soak-Off No Wipe Top Gel ($19.95 –
🔘 UV light:

My verdict?
I fell in love with this polish online, again when I swatched it onto a nail stick ( and finally, for a third time, when I put it on my nails! It’s one of the most stunning shades I have ever worn and I absolutely need to purchase more from the DC Mermaid Collection! Also, the wear time has been excellent! I first applied this on September 12th and I took these photos on September 20th. Zero chips and the shine doesn’t appear to have dulled at all! I highly recommend this gel polish and all of the other products listed above that I used in conjunction with it!
