The onset of Summer always makes it abundantly clear to us: we're actually mermaids, and our life on land must be some kind of mix-up. We believe shimmering rainbow is the new black, a colourful coif is a necessity, and beach waves are an absolute given. But now that mermaid nails are the coolest talon trend, we're officially on the hunt for our aquatic sidekicks (Sebastian and Flounder, are you reading this?).
We fully support the women of Instagram who are bedecking their digits with sea-siren-inspired manicures. The designs range from subtle glitter and painted scales to practically blinding bling and shell-encrusted claws. A mere peek at these images will inspire you to hit the beach (with your tail, of course). Just don't forget the SPF!
