IceCream Nail Tutorial!

Hello Ladies,

I always love browsing photos of nail art and just stumbled across a picture of IceCream nails! I instantly needed to recreate this look. They turned out better than I expected and thought , why not share it with all of you?

Here is my step-by-step guide on how to create ice cream nails:

1. Paint your nails, as normal, any colour you like! I would recommend a pastel/bright shade. I chose "Fuschia Wife" from Nicole by OPI. Allow to dry.

2. Then take a white polish. I used a limited edition MAC polish entitled "Vestral White". Blob this polish on so it looks as if it's dripping down about midway along your nails- do not worry about it looking neat and tidy!

3. Once this has dried, get a nail art pen or a thin brush. Dip this into a pastel colour of choice. I chose "Mint Candy Apple" by Essie. Apply this in thin, short lines on the white polish. These are your sprinkles!

4. Repeat step 3 using a different shade. I used "Do you Lilac It?" by OPI.

5. Finally add a blob of pink or red at the tip of your nail, representing the cherry on top!

And that's it! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and do let me know if you tried it out, or tweet me a picture @missbeautyblogg .
