#NailArtJul Day 28 - Frozen Treat

Hi Everyone! Today's post marks the second last posting of #NailArtJul and I'm really happy to say I've nearly completed it.  I had a look at #NailArtAug but I wasn't so much in love with any of the prompts so I don't think I will be participating in it this time!  

This is my first time using my new Models Own polishes that I won in a give-away held by Antonia over at @nailsandpolkadots.  They were actually really easy to work with and I'm super happy with the way they look on my nails.  I cant wait to use them some more!

Todays prompt was "Frozen Treat" and the only nail art that felt fitting for today was ice cream! 

Polishes Used:
Models Own Speckled Eggs - Dove (Pictured)
Models Own Speckled Eggs - Magpie Green
Models Own Speckled Eggs - Duck Blue
Models Own Speckled Eggs - Goose Yellow
Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure - Bandage
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure - Bocha Mocha
Models Own - Black Magic

I started off by painting all of my nails with Snow Me White - my new favourite white that is opaque in 2 coats.  Once that was dry, I started by adding my ice cream using my Models Own polishes.  You begin by making a U shape at the top of your nail with the polishes the 3 large dots at the bottom of the U with the same polish.

Once thats dry, you add a V shape to the bottom of the nail to act as the cone - I used Bandage for this.  I added definition with Bocha Mocha in a criss-cross pattern.

Once everything I was dry I went back in and outlined everything with Black Magic, finally I topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite.

I'm really happy with how these turned out!! They were inspired by a design by @sloteazzy on instagram though I changed it up a little.  I am also really happy that I only have 1 design left for this challenge then its over -quite exciting really :-P
