Nails Inc. Self Made Mermaid Duo | Swatches + Review

Hi pretty polishers or should I say pretty mermaid polishers?!? This has been an all Mermaid-week! Earlier this week I did a Plan with Me Mermaid theme and I love the way it turned out. So today I’m sharing with you this gorgeous duo set by Nails Inc called Self Made Mermaid.


Nails Inc. has been releasing these duo sets for the past year or so and I am loving them!! They also released a Unicorn set that you can see here, an amazing Holographic set that you can see here, and Summer delicious bright Flamingo-themed set that you can see here. Now let’s take a look at the Mermaid set.


This is a stunning teal leaning toward blue base packed with gold shimmer. It is incredible. I am in love! The formula was fantastic. Smooth and opaque in 2 coats.

I am obsessed with the gold shimmer in this. If this doesn’t scream “MERMAID” I don’t know what does!



This is an off white iridescent opal. This one was a bit more sheer, but it’s meant to be that way. After 2 coats I can still see my nail line, but it looks so chic. This reminds me of a clam shell or an oyster mother of pearl type of color. It’s quite pretty and very reflective. Not my favorite type of shade but it’s so perfect for this mermaid duo.

The shift goes from green to teal to blue. It’s very beautiful! Look at that glow!!


I have a live swatch + review video of this up on my channel here and as you will see I had fun filming part of this video at a local mall in Miami called Merrick Park where they have gorgeous fountains. A perfect setting for this duo set!

Nails Inc launched 15 years ago, the once small British brand was founded by young entrepreneur Thea Green. The product line is formulated with the latest professional technologies, boasting a portfolio of more than 150 colors and special effects including the bestselling Porchester Square, Mayfair Lane, The Paint Can spray on nail polish, Leather Effect and NailKale shades. NailKale is my personal favorite! I am loving these fun duo sets lately. You can check out my reviews on their other duo sets here.


You can purchase this set on the website for $15. It was in stock at the time this post went live.

Hope you’re having a magical weekend, but if you aren’t hope this brightened up your day! Have you tried Nails Inc.?
