My version of DL Mermaid's Dream - A Layering Experiment

After my swatching early I wondered whether I could actually re-create Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid's Dream using polishes I own. I don't have the real thing so I used photos as a guide. It's probably nothing like the real polish but my lemming has been squished for the time being.
L-R: H&M - Lady Luck, Sinful Colors - Hottie, Essence, S-he Stylezone - 471, Color Club - Perfect Molten
One coat of Lady Luck, then a coat of the glitters. After that sponge on the foils!
Do you have the real thing? What do you think of my version?

***this is my 200th post***
