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.

The Weekend IT List


1. Indulge. It's time to master the caramel apple. This quintessential fall treat can be very expensive at the store. If you've yet to master the technique, check out this step by step tutorial on theyummylife.com.


2. Have Fun. Iron Man 3 is out on DVD. Rated PG-13, this latest installment of the Tony Stark blockbusters is perfect for a family movie night.


3. Shop. Get stocked up on fall fashion. This weekend Old Navy is having a sale on jeans for the whole family, adult's from $19 and kid's from $12. The sale ends 9/27, so get shopping! Don't forget you can shop the sales online.

4. Stay Fit. Think Yourself Happy. Thoughts lead to emotions, not the other way around. When I learned how to better control my thoughts, I felt like it was a get-out-of-jail free card. I can choose to be happy no matter which type of situation I'm going through. For me focused thinking began with meditation - not clearing the mind, but focusing the mind on something during meditation. Here is a great article for beginners - Meditation for Beginners: 20 Practical Tips for Quieting the Mind.

5. Get Pretty. This time of year I'm obsessed with anything pumpkin, including beauty treatments. Pumpkin is a great source of Vitamin A and other nutrients which are great for the skin and hair. Check out these 5 DIY Pumpkin Beauty Treatments you can make with canned pumpkin puree.
