Starbucks Peppermint Mocha Inspired Mani!

My favorite drink around the holidays is Starbucks' Peppermint White Mocha. I wanted to do a mani using a marbling technique without water, since we all know water marbling isn't so easy. This is the look I came up with!

I started with Sephora by OPI's base coat, which I've been loving lately.

Then I used the marbling technique and painted my nails one thick coat of Sephora by OPI's Under My Trench Coat. I then blobbed on a white polish & took a dotting tool to swirl it to look like cream in a hot drink!

Now it was time to stick on same festive designs I had premade using nail art pens & a piece of plastic. I made two Starbucks cups for my ring fingers and some candy canes for my thumbs.

I stuck them on using Sally Hansen Advanced Hard As Nails Strengthing Top Coat.. which I hate writing out.. & then also topped all my nails with this top coat!

I love this finished result!
I hope you enjoyed & if you try it out let me know!
