The Kraken ($10 for full size 15mL bottle):
The ultimate mermaid nail color, The Kraken is a blue jelly based polish packed with blue and green hexagon glitters. I have reviewed this polish in the past, check out the post here. Overall, the formula is thick but not impossible to work with; it is hard to get a clean line near the cuticles but no glitter fishing is needed.
Magic Cake ($10 for full size 15mL bottle):
This glitter is jam-packed with tiny iridescent flakes and neon colored glitters of various shapes and sizes. The subtle cool-tone sheen of the iridescent flakes gave the polish a lot of depth. The formula was incredibly easy to work with, the glitters applied rather evenly and smoothly, I used two coats on each nail.
I've Got A Goodie Bag from GlitterBunny but they certainly aren't dupes. Magic Cake also has a better formulation that does not require sponging to apply the glitters evenly.
Both polishes are available at Rainbow Honey and Nail Polish Canada.
