heart tipped nails

Stiletto heart tip nails for Valentine’s Day! I’ve never had this shape of nail before because my nails were never long enough, but I absolutely love it! I would definitely recommend it! And I loved these because I always wanted to use my bare nail for negative space designs, but I didn’t like the white tips showing, so this one makes that a non issue.

seaglass bones and silver scales
strewn across the beach sands;
looks like a fairytale happened here,
like a mermaid swam to shore
and fell in love with sunshine.

all these dancing twists and tales
of true love’s kiss and curses,
secret deals and secret sacrifice,
yet nothing can compare to light
glistening on the surface of the sea

a mermaid fights her way ashore,
bathes herself in sand and stars;
her sisters down in the deep below
spin seaweed into ocean art and
pin it to their coral castle walls.

the strum of seasongs bright
in their aquamarine veins,
a thousand sailor hearts
clutched in pearl-tipped nails
dripping blood to the rhythm
of the ocean’s nighttime tides

oh, i saw a mermaid once,
and she had a siren smile,
a seafoam heart, saltwater
in her tears, waiting for the day
she might look upon the sun again
