How to do ice cream designs on your nails

With bright colors and fun toppings, ice cream becomes the ideal inspiration for a manicure. These foolproof nails are a good starting point if you are a beginner with nail art because the dripping appearance and the randomly placed sprinkles mean you don't have to aim for perfection for them to look good.
The best part about this nail design is that it is fun and playful without being over the top, thanks to the muted colors used. Want to get super creative? Try re-creating your favorite ice cream flavor.
