I am a firm believer of fate. Here’s a case in point. I’ve been wanting the Deborah Lippmann Mermaid’s Dream for ages, and when one came on sale on Luxola Singapore, proceeded to order it for delivery to my Singapore hotel. When I arrived, it wasn’t there. Turns out the payment did not go through. Dejectedly, I threw it out of my mind. But voila! While shopping the Singapore drugtores, Revlon Wintermint came into sight. It was about $9 Singapore dollars, half the Lippmann that was already on sale! Reportedly, this is also available in Indonesia at an even lower price (about Rp50k?).
Anyway, Wintermint is GORGEOUS! I did not have base or top coats when I put these on, but the result is stunning nonetheless, though as usual my crappy picture-taking ability doesn’t do it justice. This is from the Revlon Perfumerie line of scented nail polish, and the mint scent is nice though it disappeared by day 2. Is is a dupe for Mermaid’s Dream? I think it’s close enough that my craving is sated – though if an opportunity to grab Mermaid’s Dream at a bargain arise, I may still succumb.
Also, how do you like my hennaed hand? I really enjoyed sitting down getting this done, while munching on sweets and my belly full of yummy Indian food, watching the Deepavali 2014 crowd in Singapore’s Little India. Seriously, I’ve never seen anything so rowdy in Singapore – jaywalking and all that! 😀
