Ice Cream Nails

June 18, 2013

I made this cute pastel ice cream design for this weekend and I completely fell in love with it. It was quite easy to make and the result is so pretty and fun, so I'm very happy to share it with you ladies.

I started with two coats of my favorite nude color Essence Iced Latte, then stamped the net design to create the waffle look. I used Cheeky CH11 plate and L'oreal Mauvelous as my stamping polish.
I used a dotting tool to create the dripping ice cream waves, and chosetwo lovely pastel colors; Essie Mint Candy Apple and GA-DE Marhsmallow.
Creating the dripping shape was easier than expected, but I do wish I had a larger dotting tool to make it even easier. Since mine had a really small/fine edge, I had to repeat the dabbing motion a few times to create the desired shape, and then I applies a stroke of the same color on the free edge.
I wanted to add some sparkle to the tips and make it more interesting, so I applied on the dripping tips a bit of fabulous OPI Which is Witch to finish this look and create the "sprinkles" look.
To seal the design I used Poshe fast drying top coat.

The result was delicious! I had so much fun wearing this design and I think it's really easy to execute and get great results even if you don't consider yourself as a pro nail artist. It doesn't require a high skill level and the result is very impressive, so if you haven't tried something like this yet, I really recommend this design to you.
Hope you enjoyed this post and that it inspired you. Thanks for reading!
