Part of a healthy mermaid obsession is to express your love of mermaids with accessories, tops, makeup, hair, and even nails! This article is all about mermaid nails.

What are mermaid nails?

Mermaid nails are nails with any embellishments that give off mermaid vibes. Anything that shimmers or sparkles, has mermaid colors (teal, purple, blue...), has pearls or scales, makes for fintastic mermaid nails!

Mermaid nail designs

There are several nail design options you can go with. Mermaid nails could painted in light hues of blue, green, or purple with gems or pearls on them. Another style is silverish/blue monochrome nails that shimmer like a mermaid tail. You could also use fake nails to achieve a mermaid scale print look. There are so many options for colors and designs!
