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…

My Summer Style Picks


Hello summer!😎 It's definitely feeling like summer here in the Midwest. Time for sundresses, sandals, and my favorite sunglasses. Though I confess, I don't wear shorts very often, no matter how hot it is. I still prefer my cropped boyfriend jeans or a skirt. Pictured above: Off the Shoulder Ruffle Spaghetti Strap Blouse

Anything off-the-shoulder is still super trendy, and I love it. A few other trends that we tend to see during spring; like pink, florals, and ruffles are all going well into summer this year. Another summer trend I've always loved is embroidery. It goes so well with the boho-chic look that will always be my favorite for summer.

Black Embroidered Cut-Out Midi Dress

And while pink is a top color trend this year; when it comes to the more boho-chic looks, it's all about bold primary colors. Reds, blues, and yellows especially look great with the pom and fringe trends. If you aren't sure about wearing the look head-to-toe, simply pair some bold boho earrings with a white summery top.

Now let's talk summer accessories. I love a great pair of sunglasses, and I can't live without my sandals during the summer. I have a tortoise-shell pair of sunnies that are so versatile. The fact that they have both shades of brown and black on them makes them go with just about any outfit. Then I have a pair of black cat-eye sunglasses, because, well, every lady should have a pair of those. They're so chic and instantly elevate any look.

Striped Embroidered Shirt Dress

I do love a straw tote, but when it comes to my summer bags, I use the same classic crossbody bags I use year-round. They just go with everything, and they're hands-free; so I can shop, sip on my coffee, and still hold my husband's hand.💕 

My sandals may need an upgrade this summer. I've had the same gold-tone gladiator sandals for a few years, and they're finally looking a bit worn. I do have a great pair of brown braided sandals. Though I have to say, metallic is the way to go if you want sandals that will go with just about anything.

Embroidered Cold-Shoulder Midi Dress

Finally, we can't talk about summer style without talking about swimwear, right? I have to say, I don't go swimming very often, but whenever I do, I'm all about the cover-up. There is nothing more chic than a beautiful one-piece, and a breezy summer dress is just the thing to layer over a swimsuit. And of course, I need one of those super cute summer hats.

What are some of your favorite pieces for summer this year? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. I like my shoulders covered because they get chilled from all the air conditioning around here. 😎
