DIY Mermaid Nails

I've been promising you guys a new makeup tutorial, and here it is - a beautiful DIY mermaid mani! It's so perfect for Summer, and I promise you, it's quite easy to do. I was so inspired by the samples I recently received from Nail Social Nail Brand. I have to say, when I first saw the colors, I knew they were a little bit out of my typical comfort zone. Honestly, I haven't worn sparkly blue nail polish since college, which was quite a while ago for me. For years I've stuck with pinks, reds, and purples; with the most adventurous of my manis being hot pink (and only when hot pink was very on-trend). None the less, I was ready to try this "24K Mermaid" polish. Objectively speaking, as blue sparkly nail polishes go, it was pretty after all.

It was beautiful on, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that under different lighting it went from a true blue to a sparkly greenish blue that looked even more...mermaid-ish if you ask me. When it came time to take i…

I'm doing a lot of cherry blossom layout this week in celebration of the D.C. cherry blossom festival. Iunfortunately won't make it out to see the beautiful pink and white buds, but thankfully there are many cherry trees blooming here in Frederick as well.

Yesterday I featured a cherry blossom themed Mother's Day gift guide. Today I'm celebrating cherry blossom inspired fashion. From dresses to cherry blossom scarves to jewelry, there is no shortage of beautiful flower-print fashion in gorgeous shades of pink.

    1. Oh boy, for just a weekend, I wouldn't know where to start. There is soooo much to do here. You could swing over to Alexandria to see Mt. Vernon if you love history. If you want to do some major shopping, check out Tyson's Corner. And the cherry blossoms just hit peek bloom, so you definitely want to spend some time in DC. If you have time for just a few museums, definitely the smithsonian natural history and american history museums. The Natural History museum is great because the lines move pretty quickly. If you like modern history, don't miss the Hirshorn in DC. I could go on and on. So much to do here!
