How to be a Mermaid

My favourite thing about any costume are the small details like, in this case, the nails. Being a huge lover of nail polish, I can’t very well have naked nails on Halloween!
With Halloween fast approaching, I have decided to do tutorials that will add that little extra touch to your costume every Friday in October! As a bonus, I’ve put together some beachy nails that could be used for a mermaid perhaps? You be the judge!

As a mermaid, you want something light and shiny so immediately, I have the perfect combination in mind: OPI’s The Living Daylights as my sparkle with Sally Hansen’s Dune, Dive In and Debora Lippmann’s Mermaid’s Dream.

As you can see, I used Dune as a base on all of my nails, and on my ring finger, added 2 coats of The Living Daylights. I always have to have an accent nail.

On the rest of my nails, I drew half moons with Dive In first than Mermaids Dream for a bit of extra sparkle.

The colours go together flawlessly and even the names are beachy!

Do you coordinate your nails with your Halloween costume?
