NOTD Tutorial - mint chocolate nails

Two things. One: I've never tried my hand at nail art before (too scared they might look tacky on me). Two: I love the colour combination of mint and chocolate together. It's such a fresh combo that looks good no matter the season.

Feeling bored one day I thought I'd do something other than just paint my nails a single colour. But since I don't have the talent to do anything complicated, the easiest thing I could think of was doing mint and chocolate diagonal colour blocking on my nails. This is how it turned out.

Overall I'm quite happy with it and I don't think it looks tacky at all. Here are the simple steps I took to do the above nail look, using Hot Coco and Mint Candy Apple both from Essie.

So, how do you feel about nail art? Yay or nay?


  1. Of course you know I love it! Tape mani's are so easy and the graphic effect is always cool, not tacky!

  2. Nail art - definitelt yay! Love the mint shade!

  3. Love the minty colour and it goes so well with the chocolate! I've recently discovered tape nail art and have been changing my nails every other day :D

  4. I think I have previously posted how much I hate brown nail polish (I call it poo nails!!); however, you may have just converted me with this NOTD - it really looks fantastic. I don't see myself rushing out to buy a brown polish though you have inspired me to try some nail art (I am like you and dont have the skills to do it though could manage this).

  5. I LOVE this, definitely wanna try that out!!


  6. Mint is my new favourite colour for the season! :)

  7. Wow that mint must be super pigmented to be so true to color over the brown polish! Great post! love this!


  8. I'm the same as you - I'm scared nail art would look tacky on me! But I love this colour combo with the nail art you've chosen; it's very classy! Something I would certainly try! Xo

  9. Definitely yay! (to a certain extent. Sometimes is passes from the realm of "cute" and "awesome" to "overkill" and "tacky"). You did a really great job with these--I am *horrible* at nail art but I think I'm going to give this one a shot. Doesn't seem TOO difficult.

    And now I'm craving mint chocolate chip ice cream!

  10. I love nail art, but I absolutely lack the ability to do it on myself. You did a great job! (I think what kills me is that I don't have the patience to wait for the first colors to dry.)

    1. haha ! you are so me . I also lack patience :))

  11. I love the colour combination !

  12. These colors go great together!
