Ice Cream Sunday: Strawberry

Ice Cream Sunday: Strawberry Ice Cream

Happy Easter Everyone!  I hope you are enjoying your Sunday whether you celebrate or not.  I will be watching movies and eating peeps and my last non-dairy chocolate bar (sounds yummy right?).  I should be doing work, even though I don't work on the weekends, but that has yet to be determined :)  Today will also be a double post day because I am participating in Erica's Nails and More ABC Challenge.  Anyways, today for Ice Cream Sunday I chose Strawberry which is my second favorite ice cream flavor.  This mani didn't come out how I wanted it to and I might want to re-do it later.  See below for details.


I wanted the look of a saran wrap mani but every time I try it, it ends up taking up the polish underneath.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do this?  I wanted that look but knowing I couldn't get it to work I took the nail polish brush and just dabbed it on.  It ended up looking chunkier than I would have liked.  I started with three coats of a pale sheer pink, OPI Passion.  I then dabbed on China Glaze Shocking Pink, and did a french tip with Essie Limited Addiction.  The only nail that I did like was the one with the stamped strawberries.  I used a Pueen stamping plate with Essie Limited Addiction and OPI Jade is the New Black.  I will have to re-think this and try again in a few weeks.

  3. I had the same problem with saran wrap, but I think I was too quick to add the second polish. If the polish is completely dry it won't come off with the wrap :) And cute strawberries ^^

    1. Thanks for the tip. I'm not a very patient person so I'm sure that I added the second polish too quickly lol
