Ice Cream Sundae Mani


I mentioned that I worked on some nail art with a few of the polishes from China Glaze's Up and Away Collection..and here it is finally! This manicure has nothing to do with ice cream sundaes or whatsoever; however, the feeling that it emits simply reminds me of one. You know, like a banana split kinda thing? XD


Hahaha, is it just me or does my pinky look significantly shorter than the rest of my fingers?
I think this is the first photo that I ever posted which shows more of my hand. Actually, my left hand to be exact. Have you ever noticed that I only swatch or take pictures with my left hand? If you ever wondered why, it's because I use a DSLR for my swatches. This means it makes it almost impossible for me to hold the camera if I wanted to take pictures of my other hand. Therefore, it's always just my left hand that has to endure all the harsh aftermaths of nail polish remover. No wonder my cuticles look so terrible! >.<

Sometimes...I guess there are just some things you have to sacrifice for prettier pictures? (At least...that's how I try to comfort myself. LOL!)

I used Re-Fresh Mint, Something Sweet, and Lemon Fizz for this design. I will post the tutorial to this mani as soon as I have the pictures edited, perhaps later on today or tomorrow?

I picked up some limited edition Japanese Kit Kats the other day and really wanted to share these with you guys!
Royal Milk Tea is without doubt my all-time favourite drink, I can't wait to try this out! By the way, does anyone know what kind of tea they use for this? I have always wondered about it...

Mmm...Sparkling Strawberry Soda! ^-^

And lastly Ginger Ale! =D

Have any of you tried these yet? They look absolutely delicious!!!


  1. that manicure is very pretty and spring-like--i love it!!

    and i wish i had access to japanese goodies like those kit-kats. i haven't tried any before: the strawberry soda one sound good, but i've heard iffy reviews about the ginger ale flavor :(

    i hope that one tastes alright because ginger ale is my fave soft drink.

  2. Your mani is super cute!

    I have the strawberry one have not tried it yet! I wish I could have tried the green tea one aaah.

  3. This is absolutely adorable. I'm not much of a pastel person in general, but this combination works great.
    (And your pinky is just the right length!)

  4. Hi Wan! Love the pastel colours in your nail art! Subtle elegant and gorgeous but would we expect less from you?! Beautiful. I didn't realize kit-kats came in a variety of tastes! Yum! xx

  14. ohgerryberry- Thank youu! I still haven't tried them yet. At the moment, I'm on a strict detox diet... which means no kit kats for me! SAdddd! =(
