KCL Friday Finds

Welcome to another Friday Finds! Can you guys believe it's the weekend before Thanksgiving?! Time has been flying by since we moved into our new home, and I'm miraculously keeping up with all of the PR samples and promos and photography. At KCL we've also passed 5K followers on Insta and have a huge giveaway featuring some of my favorite things...over $500 worth of faves (including this gorgeous red nail polish)! You can enter to win here >.

Next week's finds will be Black Friday deals, so there won't be the usual small shops featured, but that is to make way for my big Holiday Gift Guide that will be posted on Small Business Saturday! On today's finds, you get a sneak peek at one of the gift guide picks as well as some self-care bath and body goodies and some adorable ornaments to help you kick off your holiday decor. Enjoy!

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 it off so I could test the other colors, one of which was gold glitter, I thought I'd experiment a little. Keep in mind that while I do manis regularly, I have never ventured into nail art; so if I can do this on the first try, anyone can master these mermaid nails!
