ice cream cone nails! + tutorial

If you follow me on Instagram, you might remember the ice cream nail tutorial I did! I slaved over it because I wanted so badly not only to grow my nails long enough to do it but also to compose a little IG video tutorial (my first ever!) and holy cannoli, video tutorials are not easy!
I managed to get it done and I was super proud of it! But somehow neglected to make a post here about it. Yeah, I'm the worst. (Let's not talk about how this is my first post in November, okay? It's been a busy month. I was gonna talk about it but I'll save ya!)

Anyway! Here's the tutorial again and some more words about my ice cream nails.


Press play!
I started with a base of Essie - Topless and Barefoot for the nice cone color. I did the waffled details using Essie - Mink Muffs and a striper brush.
The ice cream colors are all from Lime Crime:
Lime Crime - Pastelchio
Lime Crime - Milky Ways
Lime Crime - Parfait Day
Lime Crime - Lavendairy
Adding the dots of the color along the line between the ice cream and the cone really helps with the cutesy ice creamy feel by making definition in the scoops.

I added a red pearl rhinestone as the cherry on top, but be careful because those can smear if you drag the topcoat over them. So make sure to do that carefully.
I added little sprinkles with tiny caviar beads, which again can bleed their color, so swipe quickly with the topcoat!


I can't believe I actually grew my nails that long just because I wanted ice cream nails so badly!
Sadly I didn't get many nice photos of them on my camera, just on my phone. So there's no pic spam for you, but you get the point!




Looking good with MAC's Betty Bright lipstick!
I think I would wear these nails 24/7 if I could. So cute and good enough to eat!!

What do you guys think? They may be a bit too summery for right now, but lemme know if you try it out!
