We might still be 17 days away from the official start of spring, but we're already getting in the mood for warmer weather with a zesty drink and matching mani. With a dash of mint leaves, this mojito is a welcome sip, while mint green and gold make this mani a must for spring. To mix the perfect cocktail, we called in the help of Malibu. The pros at StyleSeat, a beauty booking app with access to more than 285,000 beauty professionals in 15,000 US cities, hooked us up with nail pro Narina Chan for one decadent design. Get the recipe and how-to below.

Directions:

Apply a base coat followed by two coats of the mint hue, "Candy Rain." Next apply "The Next CEO" or another gold color to the sides of the nails. Work quickly so the polish doesn't dry. Take a striping brush and drag through the gold to create a feathered effect. Repeat on all nails. Let dry and apply top coat.
