Sprinkles

all the nail polish colors of the rainbowSo remember how I co-hosted a nail art link up with the lovely Kristi of Alligator toe? Well we had so much fun that now we will be doing one every month. We will be posting our DIY manicures with different themes the third Wednesday of each month (#MonthlyMani). If you would like to participate all you have to do is send me an email (pinsplaceblog@yahoo.com) or leave a comment below and let me know.

Since July is national ice cream month we thought it would be fun to create nail art inspired by, say it with me, ICE CREAM. Anytime I think of an ice cream I have an image of two scopes of my favorite flavor in a cone covered in sprinkles and with that inspiration is born.

After putting on a layer of base coat (this step is a none negotiable if you want to have healthy nails), I painted on one layer of my base color. Then, using a small striping brush, I created small sprinkle like streaks. I did this one polish at a time so that it also added some layering and texture to the overall look.

Finally, I applied a second coat to my thumb and pinky nails.
