Then and Now Throwback Nails: Ice Cream

After seeing One Nail to Rule Them All doing a feature called 'Then and Now' I thought I would have a look back at some of the so called nail art I did when I first began. Back in the summer of 2010 I did some mint choc chip ice cream nails, and so this was the perfect design for me to try and recreate.


Then - 2010


I wish I'd have chosen a different coloured background because it sort of melts in with the ice cream. Also I  think I made the waffle cone much more complicated than it really needed to be.

Nail Polish: Battle of the Pastels

Collection 2000 - French Tip White, W7 - Polar White, Barry M - Matte White, Sally Hansen - Lavender Cloud, Revlon - Cloud, W7 - Sheer Lemon, Angels Delight, Sally Hansen - First Kiss, ELF - Innocent, Eyeko - Rain, Eyeko - Vintage, ELF - Mint, ELF - Lilac, Sally Hansen - Delphinium 

So first round we have to get 14 polishes down to just four. Me being me I don't particularly have a preference for light polishes! I adore Sally Hansen's Lavender Cloud, it is opaque in two coats and is perfect for those winter nail designs.

However I seem over the past year to have used an awful lot of ELF's Innocent and that is why it is making it through to the next round.

The winner of the battle is Barry M's Matte White, and while I have used a lot of Innocent Matte White wins (just) because it is good for stamping as well as a base for nail designs!
