Lucky Nail Designs for St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is on March 17, and many think of it as the luckiest day of the year. Once a traditional Irish holiday, it’s now widely celebrated by people around the world. But before you go out for green Guinness and Riverdancing, check out some tutorials and inspiration for St. Paddy's-themed nail art.  

Make sure you stick around until the end of this post for an opportunity to put all of that Irish luck to good use towards winning some awesome prizes!

Luck of the Irish
When it comes to the legendary four-leaf clover, you have two choices.
1: Dirty your nails by spending hours digging around for the elusive sprout.

2: Paint one on your pristine nails, look amazing while sipping an appletini in an Irish pub.

The choice seems clear to us :D

Irish Pride
For those of you with deeper ethnic or national ties to St. Patrick’s Day, try this Irish-flag design. It's certainly a lot easier than trying to paint the fifty stars and thirteen stripes of an American flag on your nails!

Subtly St. Paddy's
You can still go green-themed without your design being overtly tied to St. Patrick’s Day. Check out this simple yet elegant polka-dot look in three shades of green.

Bad makeup application? It’s probably your lights!

Has your makeup ever looked perfect in your bathroom mirror, then completely different somewhere else? You might think it was your skill or tools that weren’t good enough. But even after watching hundreds of makeup tutorials and buying more and more expensive makeups and tools, your makeup still hasn’t gotten any better.

Maybe what you really need is ….
So what is the right lighting? Let’s first talk a little about the science of photology.


Take home messages:
- Kelvin (K) is a unit of measure for absolute temperature
- Color temperatures over 5000K are cool colors (bluish white)
- Lower color temperatures, 2700–3000K, are called warm colors (yellowish white through red)

A given object appears very different under different lighting colors.

Your makeup is one such object! That includes eye shadow, foundation, blush, and lip stick color—all of them will appear very different under different light temperatures. That’s why your makeup can look one way in your bathroom but appear completely different when you go somewhere else.

So, what can you do?

MelodySusie’s new  Narcissus 2-in-1 LED Mirror Lamp is a makeup mirror framed by an LED ring so you have a “shadowless” light source from every angle. Through extensive testing, we carefully chosen a light color temperature of 6500K, comparable to midday sunlight and often considered the best lighting environment for applying makeup accurately. Conventional incandescent and halogen lights in your bathroom are far “warmer” and thus distort how we see colors.


Our mirror lamp ensures that you have the most natural daylight-like light source for makeup application. We also designed the light with an internal reflection process before output, which keeps it safe and comfortable for your eyes, even first thing in the morning.

The Narcissus can be easily converted into a table lamp with two modes: reading and night-light, operated with subtle touch-control buttons.


The head can be swiveled a full 180 degrees to whatever position you need.


As a bonus, the round base acts as an organizing tray for cosmetics and accessories.


You can power the Narcissus with the included USB able or 4xAAA batteries (sold separately).

The MelodySusie Narcissus was named an Editor's Pick by Mothermag and has received great reviews by Amazon users. For more information, please read MelodySusie Unveils High-Tech “Natural Light” Makeup Mirror.


You can now enter the code WC225TWP on Amazon to get 25% off (valid until March 31, 2017). Gaze into the Narcissus and fall in love with yourself all over again.

MelodySusie’s World Cancer Day 2017 Campaign



World Cancer Day is a global cancer-prevention initiative organized by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). It takes place every year on February 4th, and its aim is simple: to raise awareness and encourage action in the fight against cancer. In 2017, Melodysusie decided to take part in World Cancer Day with a campaign of our own.


Visit their site at www.worldcancerday.org

The tagline of World Cancer Day for 2016-18 is “We can. I can.” The message is that all of us, from individuals to world governments, have a part to play in eliminating cancer.
WCD offers a variety of thematic ways to support the cause, including Making Healthy Lifestyle Choices, Inspire Action, Take Action, Challenge Perceptions, etc.


Millions of families around the world are suffering from the physical, emotional and economic burden from this devastating disease. And they need help.


For more information, visit World Cancer Day and The American Cancer Society.

To participate in WCD 2017, MelodySusie decided to focus on raising awareness by encouraging our followers on Facebook to join World Cancer Day’s Thunderclap campaign. Thunderclap is a service that allows brands or organizations to post a one-time message on the Facebook page of anyone who signs up. They call it “crowdspeaking”, and it’s a great way to get your message out across social media. 

We offered 50 of our bestselling LyfeLike wigs to our Facebook fans willing to join the WCD campaign. This prize was chosen as an additional incentive for people to participate, but it also due to its symbolic significance—a number of our customers are women who have survived breast cancer and chemotherapy and have found their wig to be a crucial part of regaining their self-confidence.

During the 1-week campaign, we were able to reach 5,750 people through Facebook. We cannot thank our Facebook fans enough for their participation.

 Due to the great outpouring of support, World Cancer Day was able to smash their goal of 250 supporters with a total of 1,076 Facebook users, for a total social media reach of over 7.8 million people! 

In the end, we were honored to have been part of World Cancer Day 2017. We randomly chose the winners of our wigs and have notified the winners. The prizes will be distributed shortly!
Again MelodySusie would like to thank all of you who supported this campaign and helped to raise cancer awareness.
