I’m ready to change up my nails for Fall 2020, so today I’m sharing the latest Fall nail polish trends I’ve been seeing and wanted to share! I’m really loving retro nail art! and also the bejeweled look!! Check out more below:
So what’s new with Summer nail polish these days? Some of the big trends for Summer 2020 include sea glass nail polish (one of my personal favorites!!), animal prints are big and star nail art is continuing from Spring into Summer! Pastels are also continuing from Spring to Summer and of course glitter is still in style. Check of these Summer nail polish trends and more below:
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!
- Something to mix the nail polish in – I used a plastic lid but you could also use an empty nail polish bottle
- 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.
- Add your aqua nail polish.
- 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
- 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.
- 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.

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!
leave it long and wavy
Summer scarfs are making a come back, tie and tuck some fabric into your do!
Offset braid – I love the messy imperfection!
Wavy ponytail, another simple one for Summer

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.
I love a good bob with some wave to it!
Top knots once loose and messy are now inspiring a more modern, cleaner look for Spring.
Feathered layers provide a more natural layered look for Spring
