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…

2013 Style Trend: How to Wear All-Over Denim



Otherwise known as the Texas Tuxedo, all-over denim is one of the top women's fashion trends for Spring / Summer 2013. I initially wanted to avert my eyes and wait for the trend to pass, but it just continues to gain ground, so why fight it? It isn't as hard to style as you might think, and it can actually look great.

Tips for How to Style All-Over Denim
  • Mix up the shade. In look #1, I paired a light-denim chambray with dark denim.
  • Go with a denim dress! It's a quick and easy way to achieve the look. And as you can see in look # 2, it's the perfect opportunity to sport a floral print handbag.
  • Instead of mixing different shades of denim, pick a top with pattern to break up all the denim.
  • It looks great with tan accessories, but you do want to add some color. If the shoes are neutral, go for a colorful handbag.

 Two Ways to Wear All-Over Denim for Summer


For instant all-over denim this Summer, throw on a light denim cover-up at the beach. Pair it with the Sam Edelman Gigi T-strap sandal in denim. For some color go for a bright red beach tote, like the Mar Y Sol Havana Striped straw carryall in coral. In the second denim look, I broke up the blue with different shades and a print. Pair the look with this Summer's new it shoe - the espadrille flat. Soludos in particular is a very popular brand this season, worn by celebrities like Kate Bosworth and shown on the Today show by beauty and style expert Bobbie Thomas. These looks have a nautical and patriotic feel, but don't have to pair summer denim with red and white. Other bright colors like yellow or orange can also add a nice pop to these all-over denim looks.
