Starbucks Nails


I recently purchased a new nail polish, a beautiful emerald green, and fell in love. I was trying to come up with a design for the colour, when after picking up a yummy Cinnamon Dolce Latte, I realized that the colour matched the Starbucks logo exactly.

In honour of today being my first day back to University (after a week and a half break) and needing all of the coffee I can get, the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks (yay!), and the beginning of fall colours, here is my newest nail design. It is by far my favourite, and I hope that you all love it!

Coffee cup inspiration + Emerald Green nail polish found at Ardene (2/$6) + any white polish


I began by painting all of my nails with 2 coats of the green polish- except for my ring fingers, which I painted with 2 coats of white.


I then placed french manicure tip stickers over the white polish in a sideways stripe pattern and applied two coats of green on top. If you try this, let the white dry fully before doing this, or the white will come off when you peel the stickers.


Once the green polish was dry, I removed the stickers. I then touched up the small mistakes with white polish and added a star sticker to my middle fingers to play up the Starbucks cup theme!

Just because i'm so in love with this design, here are some extra pictures!
