Mermaid Effect Nails With Essence Aquatix

I tried these out a while back and then couldn’t find any of the limited edition collection since so was excited to see Essence Aqauatix Mermaid Effect Nail Stickers on the clearance shelf at Shoppers Drug Mart.  I love blue polishes and these mermaid stickers adds a nice effect you rarely see.
