Happy Mani Monday, my loves! Today I'm featuring my own hands, but not my natural nails! Please allow me to introduce you to the amazing Meero Mani Nails! There's also a special treat for you at the bottom of this post!
If you're not yet familiar with Meero Mani Nails, it is a local, small business created and run by the sweetest ladybird, Marsha. She met up with me one day to discuss a potential collaboration, and knowing me and my nail product addiction, you bet I absolutely said yes! Marsha and I had first met back at the Well Dressed Midwest VIP Blogger Lounge, where she was one of the vendors available for bloggers to connect with. And connect we clearly did!
The nails crafted by Marsha allow you to get "fierce nails in a flash," with reusable, stick-on faux nails. They come in a variety of shapes and lengths, and you can even request custom ones! Does your day job require you to keep your nails short and professional? Are your nails just not in great shape due to your lifestyle (bartender, crafter, etc)? If you have a big event coming up and need fabulous fingertips, it's easy to slap these beauties on and go. They're durable and dedicated, so you won't have to worry about them popping off throughout the night.
When I first tried a sample nail at the VIP Blogger Lounge, I was a little nervous about the removal of the nail - I worried that it would strip off the polish I had just painted on the night before and was very happy with. However, when I took the nail off later in the evening, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it hadn't damaged my polish in the slightest!
Marsha recently launched her Bridal Collection, which is what I took photographs of! Also, that ring is fake bling, in case you were like WAIT WHAT. She will be a vendor at the upcoming Off White Indie Wedding Show, which will be the hottest spot for hip brides and grooms-to-be this March. From customized wedding date nails, to fantastic 3D metal "crowns," Meero Mani Nails' bridal line is sure to please any bride or groom who doesn't want to fuss with having to make a manicure appointment. Just wait until the wedding is almost ready to go, and have one of your friends help you apply these beauties, and you're off looking picture-perfect with fancy fingertips! I think these would be especially great for bridal showers, bridesmaid gifts, or even matching sets for bachelorette parties. Since you can customize them, Marsha asked me if there were any significant dates or names I'd like to use for these sample sets. I chose the date 8/20 for my parents' wedding day, and the initials R & M for one of my closest friends, Rebecca, and her fiance, Michel.
Which ones are your favorites from the bridal collection? I'm totally in love with that milky nude set and its 3D elements. The color is understated, but the ornamental accents say "I mean fabulous business!" I think my favorite shape is the periwinkle set with my parents' wedding date, though. So much pretty, so few fingers!I can't get over how well they sit on my nail bed.
