We love all the glitter and sparkles that come with being a mermaid, but what about our mermaid nails? It’s a GREAT way to express that inner mermaid when you can’t be in the water. I did some research and there are a BUNCH of ways you can glam yourself up. Some are more involved but if you have the right materials, some won’t take that long at all!
Let me know which style you like the best!
Mermaid Nail Polish
This is the easiest and fastest way to get that mermaid shine on! Start with a center strip down the center of the nail and then carefully paint the sides. Repeat 2-3 times depending on the polish.
We live in the modern age when time is short and our days are long. Sometimes all you can get in is a basic coat of fingernail polish. Luckily for us land mermaids, there are great options that will stay all day!
