How to become a mermaid with NiftyLooks!

So, because we receive so much love for our mermaid leggings we thought it only fair to dedicate a whole blog post to the glorious mythical creature that is the mermaid!

Who doesn’t want to be a mermaid? Their glorious, colorful locks, the seaside themed jewelry and stunning femininity! It's from this we drew the inspiration to create our bright and beautiful mermaid leggings range.

We think it's time to take the look a little bit further and really maximize it so we are going to show you how to become a real life mermaid.

Let's nail the right accessories, hairstyles and clothing become mermaids!

Luscious locks

Mermaids are known for having luscious locks and pastel colored hair. In order to achieve this look you will need to wear your hair in beachy waves.

This can usually be achieved by simply spraying salt water in your hair after washing and leaving it to dry naturally.

If you want to go all the way you will need a pastel toner such as rose gold, lilac, pale green or blue – this is quite a big commitment though ladies!

If you want to take it to the next level add a shimmer or sparkle spray to your hair so it glistens! 


Want that ocean glow like a mermaid? This is one of the most fun things about adopting this pretty look. Mermaids are all about that shimmer and sparkle!

For your eye shadow you will need to get a dusty shimmer in a pale color such as silver, pearl, golds, or any pale pastel shades. Keep your blusher light and your lips pale and glossy.

Mermaid jewelry

Mermaids are also known for their delicate and feminine jewelry! This is something you definitely can’t slack on if you want to really nail the look. Think of all those beautiful seaside trinkets and treasures!

Shell earrings, necklaces, bracelet, rings or anything coral or natural gem themed also works. Moonstones look pretty on mermaid inspired looks.

If you want some super authentic pieces you need to make your own! Pop down to the beach and find a beautiful little shell, make a small hole in it and thread a chain through it and you have a handmade bracelet or necklace.

Clothes and accessories

Because you already have your mermaid leggings you can indulge in the rest of your outfit. The modern mermaid look is bold and daring so don’t be afraid to go all out! Why not opt for a shell print crop top?

Any block pastel color t-shirts also look great as you don’t want to overpower the design of the leggings or clash.

When not accessorize with seaside themed bits and pieces or be a cyber mermaid and grab yourself a holographic handbag or sneakers.

Hopefully you feel a lot more ready to hit the mermaid look now with your NiftyLooks! Be beautiful and don’t be afraid to be different!
