By K Mermaid Cave - swatches and review

I've got a stunning olive green shimmer polish for you this Green Wednesday from By K. This is Mermaid Cave from By K's fall collection 2014.

This olive green beauty almost shifts to bronze in some lighting. I get such a fall feeling from this polish! I'm thinking long walks with crispy fresh air in the woods underneath the trees which have starting changing color, damp green moss and mushrooms behind every tree. Do you get the feeling? ;)

This is two coats with a top coat.


Type of polish: Shimmer.

Number of coats: Two.

Formula: Very good! Thinner than the By K creams but not runny. Two coats give you perfect opacity!

Brush: Thin straight cut.

Top Coat: Yes. 

Grade: 5/5

If this is the color of a mermaid's cave, I'd like to live in one ;)

How do you like Mermaid Cave?


  1. Wow, ny design på bloggen ser jag, sååå fräscht och fint. Underbar bild på dig och din katt.
    Och vilket underbart lack du visar, helt min typ av färg, såååå snyggt. Önskar detta lack fanns i min ägo....;-)

  2. Beautiful shade of olive and gorgeous on you doll!!! Now we have that feeling already - you know damp and crisp - bust minus the colored leaves - well i should not complain, I prefer this over a hot summer ;-) - what a pity that thi shade is one of the worst in the universe next to my skin tone :-( - viele Küsschen xxx

  3. This is a really pretty colour! I like it!

    Wow I'm liking the new site change :-)

  4. Oh, ny snygg design på bloggen! :D Det vill jag också ta tag i känner jag, har funderat på det senaste året. Dessutom jättefin bild på dig och din katt. :D

    Om vi sen tar lacket så är det verkligen ett lack i min smak! Grönguldigt <3

  5. Beautiful nail polish, but there is something I like more: your new photo! :-) I really like it, because I see you better and you have a beautiful smile! (and a beautiful cat too!) The previous photo that you had here on your blog was different; oh it's not that I didn't like it (I did, with those flowers that you were smelling), it's just that it gave me a different impression of you... Have a nice day, lovely lady! :-)

  6. It's not my favorite color but it looks good on you. I am really surprised by these polishes. Great coverage and awesome colors.

  7. Vad härligt att avlägga ett besök här för första gången på väldigt länge! Snygg, ren och enkel bloggdesign, fem plus! Och så ett galet snyggt lack, fem plus till! Sist men inte minst ett extra plus i kanten för den fina bilden på dig och Smilla. Totalt elva plus:)

  8. Jätteläckert lack!
    Håller med övriga, jättefräsch design och bilden på dig och söta Smilla är ju för fin!! :D

  9. Jättefint! Och ja, definitivt höstkänsla:)
