Ice Cream Sundae Mani Tutorial
I finally have my pictures edited for my Ice Cream Sundae/ Spring/ Easter inspired nail art tutorial!
For this nail art design, I used China Glaze Lemon Fizz, Re-Fresh Mint, Something Sweet (all from the Up and Away Collection), and Art Deco Silver Glitter. ^-^
1. I used three coats of white polish as a base so that the colours would show up more opaque. This way, you would not have to go back and repaint every stripe if they were still sheer after the first coat. You can also use ridge fillers as an alternative. (The white polish was actually not necessary for this manicure as the three shades that I used were opaque enough already.)
2. After the white polish dries, paint on diagonal stripes in alternating colours. For a more unique look, always start with a different shade on every nail.
3. Next, line the stripes with silver glitter. The Art Deco one that I used has a striping brush made for nail art; it definitely made the process a lot easier. =)
4. Finally, finish the design with your favourite nail art deco, stickers, or rhinestones!
As you can see, this nail art design is fairly simple to do. This is the perfect mani to wear for Spring and Easter! I hope you'll all try it out when you get a chance to! Love you all and thank you for reading! ^-^
