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…

Snapshots from the Week


We've gone to the reopened library downtown Tulsa several times now, and we love it. Ken and I took the girls last weekend, and it's always nice to just walk around and look at all of the books. I daresay we've been neglecting Barnes & Noble lately, but hey, there is a Starbucks in the library, can you blame us?


This last time we noticed a glass fixture that I hadn't noticed before. It definitely lends itself to the modern feel of the library. 


During the week we tried out our new decanter that my sister gave us as a wedding present. As it turns out, decanting red wine really does bring out the flavor. I've probably said this before, but we highly recommend Yellow Tail as a great under $10 wine.


My amazing husband published another book from one of his blogs Living First Edition. I highly recommend it, and I'm not just saying that because I love the guy.;) It gives some very wise insight into how to live your best life. You can check out a sample here


Another wine we enjoyed this week is the Davinci Chianti. We've had it before. I love it because, honestly, I can have a few glasses without it affecting me too much.


With the wine, we had a very yummy dinner made by my husband. I love to cook, but he likes to cook sometimes too, especially if my back is hurting. It's nice to have someone who likes to help.:) He made a yummy Italian pizza that will definitely be on the menu in the future.


Also this week we got our wedding photos!:) You can see my full post on it here.

Tonight we'll be watching a few favorite shows like Grimm and Emerald City. Anyone else watching Emerald City? We all loved the premiere episode and are looking forward to the next one. I absolutely love that in this version, Toto is a German Shepherd like our dog.:)

Well, I hope you all had a great week, and have a very relaxing weekend!!

  1. That glass fixture looks very much like a Dale Chihuly sculpture. He does these intricate glassworks. If it is, somebody was very generous to the library.
