Merry Peppermint Mani

It's all about the holidays right now, which means lots of family, fun and food. I recently spent the day with my niece, Natalie J. Wilson. Her giving spirit (she volunteers her time with at-risk youth) and natural beauty (big smile and sparkling eyes) make me a proud auntie.

The two of us share a mutual love of lacquers and the holidays. So in the spirit of the season, we used a big bag of Starlight Mint candies as the inspiration for a Merry Peppermint Mani.

Peppermint awakens the senses. In fact, the aroma of this popular herb has been found to enhance memory. We hope these festive tips will help make your holidays unforgettable. 

Let the merriment and manis begin! 

Mani model and nail artist: Natalie J. Wilson

SHINE: Apply a base coat and two layers of Essie Marshmallow (cloudy sheer white). Mimic the rays of a sunburst with Lollipop (candy cane red). Use the tip of the brush to draw colorful quarter moons around the edges of each nail. Finish with a top coat. 
BEAUTY: Eye candy for your tips. 

BEACON: Essie lacquers contain no dibutyl phthalate, toluene or formaldehyde.
