As the self-proclaimed queen of aqua/turquoise/mint nail polish, I’ve been dying to get my hands on OPI Mermaid’s Tears… but every time I saw the display in Ulta I decided against getting it. Mermaid’s Tears just didn’t wow me enough to be worth $8.50.
Fortunately I spotted the suspiciously similar Sinful Colors Adventure Island collection at Rite Aid and bought Open Seas for only $1.99. BAM!
Open Seas is a greyed mint green creme that applies wonderfully. It’s a little more subdued (as subdued as light green can get) than my other mint/aqua polishes… almost antique looking. Very similar to Eyeko Vintage polish, but Open Seas is less blue.
Putting Open Seas next to China Glaze For Audrey (whose bottle has clearly seen better days) really shows how green Open Seas is by comparison.
This was my first Sinful Colors purchase and I have to say, it was pretty amazing. Who knew drugstores offered such great quality nail polish? (Apparently everyone but me!)
Bottom Line: You won’t regret buying Sinful Colors Open Seas instead of OPI Mermaid’s Tears.
