Misa Mermaid Dreams versus China Glaze Blue Iguana


You want to get yourself a nice vibrant blue for summer but you still don´t know which one to choose? Well maybe this post will help. Both of these polishes are from this year´s summer collections. I already did one comparison with China Glaze Blue Iguana (BI) here. I still have one more polish I wanted to compare it to and that is Misa Mermaid Dreams (MD). As you can see from the picture, they might look similar in the bottle but on the nail the difference is evident. I used three coats for both of them but while Misa has full coverage, China Glaze still has visible nail line. For me the winner is obvious, it is Misa Mermaid Dreams...one of the best polishes from all the summer collections for me :)

  3. I think the Iguana more interesting. Partly because it does have a lot more green. Seems more complex. But I'm not a blue-lover really. It's one of my least favourite nail colours.

  5. I like the glass flecks in BI more though. Makes it interesting to look at :)

  6. Mermaid Dreams is stunning, but I still find that Blue Iguana is far superiour to it! Two coats gave full coverage for me, and the slight duochrome effect that I could find in some lights and angles were to die for!

  7. BI all the way. No brush strokes, leans more green and less purple, glass fleck <3<3<3, and I don't have VNL with two coats. It's my summer favorite.

  9. I prefer the Misa polish on its own, but Blue Iguana would be a winner over a bright blue creme :) I don't like VNL as my lines aren't even, and I'd fear the green tint in BI would make my yellow nails look even more yellow.

  10. I like the Misa because it doesn't show VNL, but I prefer Blue Iguana for the glass flecks.

  15. They are different on the nail. I prefer MD much more. Very pretty shade on you.
