7th day for Summer challenge, today is Ice Cream day!!
I really, really had no idea to represent “ice cream” on my nail but at least I wanted to try for so-called “creamy french” in Japan, so I started with off white just as vanilla, and then I added mint green on…

...And because it looked a liiiiiiiiiiitle bit sad, I chopped my self made “polish sheet”, sprinkled on, and…here comes chocolate-mint ice cream!! :) Actually chocolate-mint is NOT my taste (sorry I hate mint flavor), but it’s my husband’s favorite…he made me so happy when he saw my nail and yelled, “Alright let’s go to the ice cream shop, I need to get a scoop of it!!” XD

さて夏チャレ7日目ですよ今回はアイスクリームネイルですよー!
……ってアイスクリームと聞いていわゆる「とろーりフレンチ」しか思い浮かばなかった自分の発想力の貧困さをどうにかしたい今日この頃ですorz アイスクリームコーンとか、爪の先が尖っていない限り絶対変になると思うし!けどタダの丸とか違うだろうし!大体アイスクリーム系パステルカラーとか持ってないし!ととととりあえずちょっとシアーな白でとろーりやったらバニラっぽく見えないかな!かな!!……というのがスタートで最終的にこんなんなりましたよ、という。
こんな爪やっておきながら実はわたくしチョコミントアイスって最大級に苦手なのですが(ミント・メントール系全般がダメ)うちのダンナが逆にアイス=チョコミントというくらいに好きでして。そんなダンナが出来上がったネイルを見て一言、「今からアイス食べに行こう、チョコミント食べたい!!」といったのがちょっぴり嬉しかったりします。あととろーり初挑戦だったのですが意外と上手く行ったので今度はチョコレート系で出来たらいいなーとも思っています(´∀`)

    1. Thanks!! I love creamy look myself too :D
      So the chips...I applied polish on silicone sheet (I used bottom of silicone cupcake mold), dried up so then you can peel off, chopped it with fine scissors and then applied one-by-one. Not difficult ;)
