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…

Galentine's Day the Right Way


There are usually two different kinds of people when it comes to Valentine's Day - those in love and eager to celebrate and/or flaunt it, and those who have a bah humbug attitude towards the whole thing.  I find myself in the first category, though I hope it comes across as inspiration vs. flaunting. If you however, find yourself single this February, I encourage you to embrace the holiday! What better time to get together with your friends and have a fun party. It doesn't have to be an all-men-suck rally...why let that dominate a perfectly good evening? I suggest you celebrate yourself, your friends, and use it as a time for some much-needed self love.

I really like the idea of this Pizza & Popcorn Galentine's Day Greeting Card as a GALentine's Day invitation. It's tempting with social media to throw a super chic and Instagram-worthy brunch, but how about ordering pizza, making some popcorn, and doing some face masks and nail painting like we all did back in the day. You can still make it chic with some easy decorations and a yummy sparkling cocktail. Pictured above: Galentine's Day Wine Bottle Label


For anyone attending a Galentine's Day event, a wine bottle covered with a Galentine's Day Wine Bottle Label, like this one by Paprika Paperie, is the perfect thing to give as a hostess gift! There is one more cute Galentine's Day design available, though my favorite is the Kate Spade inspired striped one pictured above. Click here to see all of the Valentine's Day products available at Paprika Paperie!


For a cute and easy party favor, you could go with something like individual face mask packets or nail polish, especially if you decide to do a pampering themed party, but if you'd rather give out sweets, these "All Day Rose`" Rose Gummi Party Favors are perfect! You can find more packaging options at The Brodie Bride.




As I suggested above, forgo the complicated buffet with bite-size appetizers and just order some pizza. Keep dessert just as simple but a little more chic by picking up a pretty cake at your local bakery and topping it off with this Happy Galentine's Day Cake Topper by City Girls Crafty World. For some inexpensive, easy, and super cute decorations; order their Valentine's Day Banner and heart confetti. You can get them in different combinations of silver or gold and red or pink, and the banner is currently 10% off!


Of course when it comes to the drinks, wine is such an easy choice. But if you want something a little special, try my recipe for a Rose` Raspberry Cocktail. It is a self-pampering party after all...a little bubbly is in order, I think.

If you're throwing a Galentine's Day bash, I hope you take my advice and use it as a time to celebrate your friends and yourself. You can shop for everything you need using the links below. Happy February! 💕
