OMD2 challenge-Mint

Well, I warned that I’d be posting as many manis as possible in the next few days to catch up on the Oh Mon Dieu Part Deux challenge, and here’s the first post.  The challenge was mint nails, and I went for a fairly obvious choice: mint chocolate chip ice cream.

I’ve been wanting to do ice cream nails for so long now, and I cannot believe that it has taken me so long to get around to it.  These are so cute!  They were so simple to do too.  And they feature one of my favorite flavors of ice cream, which is a plus.  I had a bit of trouble with the ‘waffle’ part of the cone because I cannot for the life of me use striping brushes properly, but everything turned out fine in the end.  So happy with my first OMD2 challenge.

I used Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet for the ice cream, Zoya Louise for the chocolate chips and lines on the cone, and a mix of Zoya Louise, Barry M Lychee, and Maybelline Color Show Electric Yellow for the cone’s color.  I was worried about not having a good color for the cone, but the mix looks pretty good, I think.

Next up is a coral challenge!
