Ice Cream Manis

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream--especially during a hot summer day.

Here's the scoop: Americans consume almost 6 gallons of ice cream per person each year. Vanilla and chocolate reign as the most popular flavors, according to the International Ice Cream Association. Butter pecan, strawberry and neapolitan round out the top five.

July marks National Ice Cream Month. In honor of this special observance, we've created several sweet treats for your tips with our favorite flavors and polishes.


SHINE: Neapolitan creates a flavor fest with a tasty trio of strawberry, chocolate and vanilla ice creams.

BEAUTY: Over a base coat, apply two layers of Show Me The Ring (vanilla). Next, place two coats of Strawberry Shortcake (strawberry) over two thirds of each nail with a flat watercolor brush. Then apply two layers of Little Brown Dress (chocolate) on the tips. Finish with a top coat.

BEACON: Contains no dibutyl phthalate, toluene or formaldehyde.


SHINE: Chocolate chip pleases the palette with a classic combination of vanilla ice cream blended with bits of chocolate.

BEAUTY: Over a base coat, apply two layers of Funny Bunny (vanilla). Then randomly place small and large chunks of Suzi Skis In The Pyrenees (chocolate) with a fine tip watercolor brush and toothpick.
