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.

Online stores like Joss & Main have a huge selection of upscale nautical decor, and you can find more affordable beach-themed accessories at Pier 1. How cute is this starfish tea light holder? If you're crafty you can even make your own accessory by painting a wooden sign with stencils to make your own beach-themed wall art.

Etc. Etc. Coastal is wonderful- on the coast. And I think you'd agree.
