Tutorial: Peppermint Mocha Nails

Peppermint Mocha Nails.


Are you already sold?

Once I heard about these, I knew I had to do a tutorial to share with all my loyal followers. I love fun nail styles and I'm never afraid to try something unusual. This one just hit the mark with me, mocha's are kind of what I live for, and peppermint gives it that special holiday kick! Why not try your favorite Christmas drink on your nails? Since painting my nails this way, I swear I've been craving mocha's non stop. No joke!

And by popular demand, the Peppermint Mocha Nail Tutorial:

Step One:
Sephora: White, OPI: Skinny Dip'n In lake Michg'n, Hello Kitty Sephora: Red Sparkle

Pick out three nail colors and a toothpick, a mocha (or light nude if you prefer a latte) tint, white for the whipped cream and Red Sparkles for the sprinkles. Drool.

Step Two:

Paint all nails with two coats of your Mocha color, one coat if yours is darker than mine.

Step Three:

On my last coat of mocha I quickly add a tiny drop of white color. * You got to be quick on this step, so work on one nail by one.

Step Four: 

Use a toothpick to swirl your "whipped cream" with the mocha. Do this to each nail: one by one.

Step Five: 

Use your "sprinkles" and paint just the tips with this red sparkle color. I went with one layer and didn't try to make it in a perfect line. I like my sprinkles scattered. And if you prefer EXTRA sprinkles, well I won't judge, just add another layer or two, and your set!

Easy peasy right? If you are a professional barista you could go that extra mile and create coffee art!

Now your nails are festive and will be the envy of all your friends at your next holiday party! Share this tutorial with your gal pals, after all its Christmas time.
