I 'm a big fan of the red cups at Starbucks, it makes me feel extremely festive and full of holiday spirit while getting my much needed daily doses of caffeine haha! To me, there is nothing that signifies the arrival of the holidays more than seeing people sipping from these beautifully designed cups. However, I have always been hesitant about ordering their holiday drinks because I worry they may be too sweet or sugary; but this year I finally decided to give them a try after you ladies recommended them in this post. After multiple taste tests these past weeks, I can conclude my favourite is definitely the Peppermint Mocha, the cool mint chocolatey taste reminds me a lot of After Eight hehe. :)
This is the first holiday nail art design that I have created for this year. All the nails except for the accent finger features diagonal stripes painted with gold and white polish, which I find a lot more unique and interesting than the usual holiday colour combination of red and white.
Here are the steps to create the design on the accent nail:
1. After applying base coat, paint your nail with a gold nail polish. I used a franken I created with OPI Glitzerland and Designer...De Better because I wasn't able to locate a warm golden polish in my stash.
2. Next, paint a diagonal section on the upper portion of your nail using white polish. I used Essie Marshmallow for this design.
3. Line the edge where the two colours meet with silver nail art tape.
4. Glue on your favourite rhinestones and nail decals and finish the design with a thick layer of top coat to protect your mani.
I hope you like this design ladies and I'd love to know what your favourite holiday drink is at Starbucks!
