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…

3 Looks for a Summer Wedding

http://www.formaldressaustralia.com/

It seems not too long ago when I shared three looks to wear to a spring wedding. But that season has come and gone so quickly, and summer is upon us. And it is the biggest season of the year for weddings, so chances are you have a few invites and may be wondering what to wear. It's pretty easy to figure out summer wedding attire if you keep the location in mind.

Of course you have the invite to start with as well. It should say "Black Tie Attire" or "Black Tie Optional" or perhaps something like "Formal Beach Attire," and it will have the ceremony time. Generally indoor evening weddings call for more formal attire than outdoor afternoon weddings.

For an indoor wedding, no matter what time of year, you can never go wrong with a Black Formal Dresses. An elegant knee-length cocktail dress, like this FAIRY COUPLE Women's Off the Shoulder Lace Vintage Wedding Party Cocktail Dress is perfect for a black-tie optional indoor wedding, while a sleeveless or strapless full-length gown, like this Lily Wedding Womens Spaghetti Strap V-Neck is better for a formal evening wedding.

For an outdoor formal wedding, simply follow the same guidelines with the length of the gown. For a black tie outdoor wedding, stick with a long gown, for example. Something strapless and chiffon, like this ERIN erin fetherston Women's Tuberose Painterly Cheetah Strapless Evening Gown is perfect for an outdoor dressy wedding.

For a dressy-casual outdoor wedding, you can go with just about any cocktail dress above the knee, or pair a nice skirt with a blouse. It has even become acceptable, and even trendy, to wear a dressy jumpsuit to a dressy-casual or black tie optional wedding. This Vivicastle Women's Jumpsuit, for example, is something you could dress up for a Summer wedding and dress down for just about any occasion. Whether you go with a jumpsuit, cocktail dress, or gown; try something with light, flowy fabric like one of the strapless or sleeveless chiffon gowns at Formaldressaustralia, and go for lighter colors.

Beach weddings are also very popular for summer and can be quite fun to dress for. You can stick with a knee-length cocktail dress for just about any dressy-casual wedding, including a beach wedding. But a seaside ceremony is the perfect opportunity for a flowing hi-low dress, like this Eliza J Strapless Mock Wrap Asymmetrical Chiffon Dress. The one pictured above is the best buy, because you could dress it up with jewelry for a more formal seaside wedding, or you could dress it down for a casual beach wedding. Best of all, you can wear it afterwards for any dressy-casual occasion. With a pair of flat gladiator sandals and some boho-chic jewelry, this one looks like the perfect vacation dress.

And whether you go with a gown, hi-low, or mid-length dress; you can go in on the season's hottest trends with an off-the-shoulder dress, like this Tinkwell Women Off Shoulder Spaghetti Strap Floral Maxi Dress.

  2. These are all such great suggestions for different summer events. It can be challenging to find the perfect dress in general, let alone for when it's hot outside, yet cool indoors; the transition can be drastic. Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great week ahead!
