Manicure Monday: Little Mermaid

For Halloween this year, my team at work went as hipster Disney princesses, and I was a hipster Little Mermaid. I went all out with my costume – long red wig, suspenders, boots, thick glasses, fork … I mean, dinglehopper – and all I needed was the perfect manicure to go with it! I decided to embrace the mermaid look and go full-on scales.  Read on to learn how to get a mermaid manicure yourself!

Although my costume was straight hipster, I really wanted to do a mermaid manicure. I never attempted the fish-scale manicure look over the summer, so this was my chance.
