Were there any application differences between the two polishes? How did I come to have both? For answers to these questions and a few more pictures, keep reading!
So I'll go ahead my second question first. I do not own Mermaid's Dream. I am lucky to live by a high end department store with a huge variety of polish testers in their Deborah Lippmann section. I went there and painted my nails specifically for the purposes of doing a comparison.

*Edited to add: After wearing the polish out and about all day,it definitely seemed like Mermaid's Dream showed a bit more duochrome quality. When the sun shone on my nails at certain angles, they looked more turquoise blue-ish. Sea Dust didn't do this in the sunlight. Also, I think the glitter in Mermaid's Dream is a slightly brighter shade of blue and more densely packed, so that might also account for the differences the 2 polishes displayed.
