TUTORIAL VIDEO: 4 Easiest Ever Ice Cream Nail Designs ~ Perfect for Summer!

Good evening, everyone! You guys really enjoyed last week’s tutorial video, Easiest Ever Beach Nails, so I decided to make a new series out of it (we’re changing the name of the series from “15 minute Nail Art” to “Easiest Ever Nail Art”) and add another installment this week…with ICE CREAM being the inspiration. ☺ These designs are great for the Summer and they’re so fun and easy to create. Let’s get down to business!

Okay, so below is a list of the polishes and tools I used in case you’d like to use some of/the same ones as I did. Below that is the video tutorial. These designs only take a few minutes to create, you can mix and match them, or do just one with a complimentary color–these are great to wear any time of year! Enjoy!

Polishes/Tools I used to create this design:

Zoya: Anchor Basecoat

(mint chocolate chip ice cream)

Sinful Colors: Appease *Unavailable 🙁

Sally Hansen: Big Crackle Topcoat (substitute: black polish/acrylic paint)

(chocolate ice cream with chocolate syrup)

wet n wild megalast: Wet Cement *Also used for stripes on ice cream cone and chocolate swirl in Neapolitan ice cream

wet n wild megalast: Under Your Spell 

(strawberry ice cream with strawberry glaze)

OPI: Getting Nadi On My Honeymoon *Unavailable :(, but also used for strawberry swirl in Neapolitan ice cream

essie: Watermelon

(Neapolitan ice cream)

 Sinful Colors: Snow Me White

(remaining polishes/tools…)

wet n wild: Yo Soy

INM: Out the Door Topcoat

Detailing Nail Art Brush *or toothpick

These are so super cute and very easy to create. I really like that they don’t have to be perfect to look adorable! Which ice cream cone design is your favorite?
