Summer Challenge Day 7 - Ice Cream

Day 7 (July 13th) of the Summer Challenge is Ice Cream. I love ice cream. My husband and I can't get enough of it in the summer...but our waistlines can. So, we try to behave and only have ice cream about once (or twice) a month. :) My favorite kind of ice cream is mint chocolate chip, and there are these fabulous ice cream sandwiches at Target that have mint ice cream in them! So, I decided to replicate them on my nails. Here it is!
I used Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet, and then added the chocolate 'sandwich' using this lovely chocolate brown from Finger Paints, which is on loan from my mom who came to my rescue when I realized I didn't have any brown polish (thanks, Mom!). I made the scalloped edges with a dotting tool. After I was finished, I decided that chocolate chips were needed, (because these ice cream sandwiches would be even better with chocolate chips in them!) so I added them using a smaller dotting tool.

Here is Mint Sorbet all by itself.
Here is a picture of the awesome ice cream sandwiches! They are soooo good!
