Minty Manicure

Pretty in peppermint. Follow these steps for a wonderful winter manicure:


  1. Paint all nails with two thick coats of Zoya’s Snowwhite (white). Allow polish to dry completely.
  2. Using the tip of a toothpick or a freshly sharpened pencil, paint slightly curved stripes of Zoya’s Carmen (red) from the center of the nail to the edge all the way around the nail (5 - 7 stripes) on all nails, except your ring finger.


  1. Using a toothpick, paint a small orange (Zoya’s Heidi) triangle for the snowman’s carrot nose in the center of your ring finger.
  2. Using a toothpick and Zoya’s Envy (dark green) apply two drops for eyes and several drops below the nose for the mouth.
