DIY Sea Glass Nail Polish

I’m so excited to share with you, my DIY Sea Glass Nail Polish!!  It’s the perfect Summer nail art and even better it’s incredible easy.  I’m all about an easy beauty DIY!  I’m going to show you the exact nail polishes I used to get this look and how easy it is to do.  Scroll down to see more!

I think what I love best about this is the ethereal effect having sea glass nails gives off, especially in the sunlight!  It could have also been because I chose this beautiful aqua shade.  Blues and purples tend to give off that ethereal quality.  I’m pretty sure mermaids would approve!

I don’t know if you would call these “ingredients” per se, but are you ready?  The list is super short:

  • Revlon Transforming Effects Matte Top Coat
  • Sinful Colors Wonder Mint – don’t let the name fool you, it’s really a pretty turquoise color!
  • Tissue
  • Something to mix the nail polish in – I used a plastic lid but you could also use an empty nail polish bottle

 

DIY Sea Glass Nail Polish

 

 

  1. Pour out some of your matte nail polish into your mixing container.  I found that a 4:1 ratio of clear to aqua gave enough color but still let the polish stay transparent.  If you’d like to go even lighter, you could do a 5:1 ratio.
  2. Add your aqua nail polish.
  3. Use the tissue to wipe off your aqua nail brush and use the brush to mix up your polish.  *Note:  The color will look thicker and almost milky in the container
  4. If you used the 4:1 ratio, get a good amount of nail polish on your nail brush and apply one coat and one coat only.  *Note:  If you find that your polish isn’t as colorful as you’d like, don’t add a second coat!  Instead remove the polish from your nail, and add a teeny tiny amount of aqua to your mix and reapply.
  5. If you used the 5:1 ratio, I still recommend trying to apply only one coat, but I did find that adding a second coat was okay.  It just wasn’t as transparent as I would have liked.

*One last note:  If you are using a container that doesn’t have a lid, the nail polish will dry really fast in your container.  So you’ve got to be quick when you apply it.

Top Nail Polish Trends for 2020

Today I’m sharing my favorite nail polish trends for 2020!  This year I’m loving all the shimmer, nudes and metallics but don’t worry I haven’t left my favorite turquoise color behind.  2020 is all about small delicate details whether you’re going with bold colors or shiny metallics.  I feel like this year’s nail polish trends are following the jewelry trend of delicate sparkling layers.   Take a look and and let me know what you think!

Summer Hair Inspiration 2019

With every season I like to change up my hair, even if it’s just a little bit.  So today I’m sharing my latest Summer hair inspiration, inspired by the latest hair trends.  My favorite so far being the offset braid, or an imperfect braid.  I like the more natural look of this braid instead of the tight and uniformed braids of my little kid days.  Basically I’m rebelling via my hair, lol!

pony tail braid – classic and super simple!

Spring Hair Inspiration 2019

I’ve been noticing some fun new hair trends for Spring and wanted to share!  Did you know that lavender is the new hair color of the season?  I’ve been spotting it everywhere and I love its mermaid-esque look!  I especially gravitate towards the lighter almost grayish lavender hues.  I find them so pretty!  Take a look:

I love wispy bangs! If I had straight hair I would wear wispy bangs all year round but sadly since I was born with curly hair, I have to restrict my fringe to late fall and winter months only.
