Midweek Manicure // Melted Ice Cream Mani

August 19, 2014

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! (You can see the nail art design I did using the Fake Tattoos paper aeroplane tattoo here)



I’ve not tried this splodge method before but am really happy with the result and will definitely be trying it again! It reminds me of watercolours, and something between candy floss and melted ice cream, so I guess achieved my result!

What do you think of this nail art look?
