Stacked Ice Cream Cone Manicure

Oi! đŸ™‚ That’s Portuguese for hello, by the way!

So a few days ago, while contemplating delicious treats, I was suddenly inspired to create the ice cream cone manicure you see below. I’ve seen ice cream manicures a million times before, but wanted to do something a little different, so I created a stacked look. I thought the results were super sweet. I simply created the cone on my thumb by painting a light brown inverted triangle with darker brown criss cross marks. For the scoops I created a half circle and then used a dotting tool along the bottom edge. The cherry also required a dotting tool. Super easy!

Strawberries & Gingham Manicure

I had a blast painting these cuties on my fingernails. I posted the picture on Reddit and someone asked how I created the gingham look. All I did was paint a solid pink base on the tip and then drew white lines to create a checker pattern. After the white dried, I used a dotting tool to put pink dots over the places where the white lines intersected. Super easy!

Freehand Retro Cherries Manicure

I’ve been wanting to do this manicure ever since I saw CutePolish’s YouTube tutorial. It was pretty simple and the response has been great, thus far. To simplify the process for you: paint nails white, apply red dot duos with a dotting tool, add green stems/leaf, put a white dot on the left side of each cherry. Voila! đŸ™‚ I used Sally’s Northern Lights hologram glitter top coat for an extra kick of cute.

Cupcake Nails

I used CutePolish’s tutorial for this design. Painted all nails pale pink and applied reddish-pink stripes over top. For the ring finger, I painted the pink/strips on half the nail, made a white mound for the frosting and then added six dots for sprinkles and a heart on top. Covered with a holographic glitter top coat for a sugar-like effect.
