Nails of the Day - Ice Cream Sundaes

Hey guys!

Today I have a mani that was inspired by a fellow Newfoundlander's recent ice cream nail art. She does a lot of freehand nail art which I really respect and she's very good at it. Here's her design that inspired me:

And here's a link to her tumblr account so that you can check out her other awesome designs.

I loved the concept but I didn't want to just copy the design so to make it my own, I decided to make the ice cream into ice cream sundaes! I added stripes to make it look like the ice cream was dripping out of a glass and I also decided to add a stem to the cherries to add to the theme of ice cream sundaes. Unfortunately, the design would only work if I faced the glasses inwards (towards me) as opposed to outwards which is not how I usually like to execute my designs. However, I'm still very happy with it how it turned out!
