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…

Easy DIY Princess Christmas Ornaments


These DIY princess christmas ornaments are so easy to make, and they each cost under $1.00. I simply used prepainted wooden cutouts from the craft store. You can get them unpainted for a Christmas craft project for kids, or you can purchase them prepainted like the ones I used. These wooden cutouts come in so many different styles and colors, like sailboats, animals, hearts and more. Using wooden cutouts to creat DIY ornament makes it easy to create a themed tree for a child's room.

Supplies Needed:

*painted wooden cutouts

*hot glue gun

*matching ribbon



Instructions:

Use your hot glue gun to place a generous amout (about half a dime size) of glue to the back of the wooden cutout at the top center. Cut the ribbon into 6-inch strips. Taking both end together, pull the ribbon into a loop then place the ends down onto the hot glue. Use a pen or something to press the ribbon down into the glue then top the ribbon with aother dot of hot glue. Leave ornament upside down for a few minutes to dry completely. The glue dries quickly, so you need to do one ornament at a time.



It's that easy. You can make these in any number of styles and color schemes. For more of a DIY keepsake ornament or simply for a fun Christmas craft, you can get these wooden cut-outs unfinished and let your child paint them his or herself before you attach the ribbon.
