It’s the August bank holiday this weekend in the UK so we get a nice long break hurrah! Although it’s set to be a washout – classic British summer – bank holiday weekends always make me think of special day trips and ICE CREAM! I thought this would make a fab theme for some nail art, so here you go – my melted ice cream manicure!
I started by painting my nails with 2 coats of Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Coconut. I then picked 5 pastel ice cream-esque colours:
Barry M Gelly Hi Shine – Sugar Apple
Barry M Gelly Hi Shine – Elderberry
Models Own Hyper Gel – Pink Veneer
Models Own Hyper Gel – Lilac Sheen
Models Own – Lemon Meringue
Taking each colour in turn, I wiped off most of the polish on the brush and then splodged it randomly on to my nails. I repeated this until all nails, bar my ring fingers, had been coated in each colour.
I then used a temporary nail tattoo from Fake Tattoos* and applied the large ice cream design onto my nail. A quick once over with top coat and my look was complete! So quick and so easy, and I LOVE the result! It’s a really easy way to have some interesting nail art in a really low effort way. perfect!
