Today’s nail art is perfect for this year’s summer season: it’s colourful, it’s fun and easy to do. One of the best things about summer? The ABUNDANCE of ice cream which is why we decided to put the ice cream on our nails. Check out our tutorial video to create this awesome, super summery nail art.
A Super Summery Nail Art Tutorial
Step 1: Begin by applying a base coat on all your nails.
Step 2: Next, paint all your nails with a white nail polish e.g. Seashell Seashell. Once dry start painting an ice cream cone on your ring finger. Use a light brown or nude colour e.g. Intutive Energy or Let Go for the cone and use a slightly darker brown or red colour e.g. Let Go or Pumpkin Spice (coming soon) for the lines to better imitate a waffle cone. See video above.
Schritt 3: Next, using a dotter tool spot three different flavors of ice cream on top of the cone. We used a light turquoise nail polish (Peace), a bright pink/coral nail polish (Achievement) and a yellow nail polish (Sunset Vibes).
Step 4: Now let’s paint “melting ice cream” on your other nails. Use The turquoise nail polish for your middle finger, the yellow nail polish for your pinky and the pink/coral nail polish for your forefinger. Simply use a dotter tool and paint three dots of the same colour on one nail (anywhere you like). Then use a small and thin paint brush and bring the nail polish to the top of your nails creating “melting ice cream”. See video above for reference.
Step 5: Using a nail polish remover and a small brush clean up the edges of your nails.
Step 6: Once the nail polish is dry apply a coat of top coat to ensure a long-lasting manicure.
