The name of the Sally Hansen Across the Universe dupe is...

I have received lots of comments/emails/tweets asking about the name of new Sally Hansen dupe of Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe (click here for pics). Thanks to Emi at Project Swatch (who originally supplied us with those great pics), I can now confirm that the name is...

560 Mermaid's Tale

Thanks so much, Emi, for letting us know! Also, I've been to several CVS and Walgreens locations and so far I haven't spotted Mermaid's Tale in any of the Complete Salon Manicure displays (although I did pick up that lovely blue duochrome, which I'll be swatching for you shortly). I'm wondering, for those of us who don't have the fancy nail bars at our Walgreens stores, if we'll have to wait until this collection moves to the permanent wall display before we have access to this color?

Have you spotted Mermaid's Tale in person yet?


  1. Wow this color looks so pretty & like such a great dupe!!

  2. Glad I could help! And looking forward to the duochrome swatches :)

  3. I finally splurged on my first DL polish 2 months ago, and I chose ATU. Sadly, for 18bux I didn't find it to be that needed the boost of a dark blue undercoat to really appear as it does in the bottle.

  4. I saw the new ones at Walgreens today (with the nail bar) and I think I see at least a few other dupes as well, though I didn't see the DL one. There looked to be some China Glaze and OPI dupes there.

  5. Icing by Claire's now has an "Across The Universe" dupe! I just bought it on Friday. It's called "Hey Sailor Boy". Icing also has a dupe for "Ruby Red Slippers", "Happy Birthday", and "Bad Romance".

  6. I haven't seen this one, but Revlon also has an ATU dupe. I can't remember the name, but it is a new shade and I bought it at Ulta. The cool part was since Ulta carries DL polishes I had been swatching some of the tester polishes including ATU. I bought the Revlon polish and painted my nails at home. My friend couldn't tell the difference and I couldn't either.

  7. Found the fancy nail bar at a brand new Walgreens today. Too bad the ONLY shade they were out of was this one! I guess it's good to have something to hunt for.

  8. Hi Girls! I found a bottle at Target the other day, it was all by itself, so I grabbed it immediately… Just a small precision regarding the name: it is Tale and not Tail…

  9. I found my Mermaid's Tale at Target as well
