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…

Nursery Decor: A Modern Gray and Sage Green Baby's Room

Gray has become a surprisingly trendy home decor color, even for baby's rooms. This once thought to be drab color has become one of the most beautifully displayed neutrals lately. It has such a calming effect, it's easy to see why it has become so popular in nursery design. A slightly dark shade of gray (pictured above) can give a sleek and modern look, while a lighter Heather gray (pictured below) can look quite feminine when paired with the right kind of accessories and prints.

I love this neutral for a baby's room, because it truly can go either way, unlike blue or pink. And you can add any accent color you can imagine. It also looks very cool and modern with primary colors like orange and yellow, and it looks modern yet sophisticated when paired with cool colors like blues and greens. For this inspiration board, I've paired it with a very light sage green. It's very neutral, but given the right patterns, can also look very girly. You could easily add in a second accent color - blue for a boy's room or lavender for a girl's room. To incorporate animals into the design, you could use gray-colored animals like elephants, mice, or sharks.

You can use whichever type of wood with these colors, though for a full modern look, go with black or white furniture. If you want to add in metallic elements, go for silver.
