Minty Fresh Nail Art

Now that Christmas is really closing in (I can't even think about how few days I have left to do All The Things), I'm finally getting the chance to post some of my holiday nail art here for you guys. I have a nice little cache saved up to post this week and next, so I hope you enjoy!

First up is this cute little peppermint manicure inspired partly by the holiday season, and partly by one of the new(ish) piCture pOlish collaboration shades, Minty.


As soon as I saw this polish, I knew I had to do peppermint nails with it. The gorgeous mint green with the minty glitters is just too perfect!

The base of the peppermint swirl accent nail is China Glaze Snow and I applied the swirls with piCture pOlish O'Hara and a small nail art brush. The white on top of the red is white acrylic paint, as is the white of the little candies on my ring finger. The red on those is O'Hara again.

Minty is a fabulous polish, like all piCture pOlish's offerings: it went on smoothly and I had to do minimal fishing/placement for good glitter distribution. La Paillette Frondeuse and piCture pOlish did a fantastic job with this one!

It never fails: every time I look at this manicure, I crave a candy cane. I may or may not be eating one as I type this...

Thanks for looking!


  1. I LOVE that you paired candy canes with this! So pretty!

    1. Thank you! This polish really was the perfect inspiration for candy cane–themed manciure. :)
