Mish Mash Challenge - Cold. Ice cream nails + Glitter Bunny Krazy Straws!

Hey there, nice nails! :)

This week's theme of the Mish Mash Challenge is cold. Throw in some summer and bam! you have it: ice cream nails! 

I've had this idea since back then when I was still on holidays, ages ago, when I was still a careless person... okay, maybe not that long ago, let's say a month. Exactly when I ripped off my pinky nail and clipped my claws off - back to the good ol' "you always want what you can't have" story. Since I had this stupid idea that you need long nails for sporting an ice cream manicure I just waited and waited until I couldn't wait anymore. It turns out I waited too much and my scoops are huge... how's that for an impatient person? Well, please be my judge. And don't be merciful.
For once I nail arted directly using nail polish, but the list is endless and there's no point mentionning the whole list in here unless you want me to, in which case your wish is my command. What is worth mentionning is the awesome glitter I covered my pinky, index and thumb with: Glitter Bunny Krazy Straws! I learned the hard way you HAVE TO thin indies before you slap them on: this bugger bubbled just like a jacuzzi; my bad. But damn! Isn't it just gorgeous?! *getting emotional*

And next up I've got a question for you. Do you like unnatural hair colors? I am talking blue, pink and purple dye here:
If so, would you wear them? 'Cuz I am wanting to. Desperately. Right now I can't; I don't think I'd encourage lawyer-client confidence, but I plan to in a near future. I would love to hear your thoughts! 
And hey, if it's "NO" just say so. This question has not been thrown in here so you can all tell me how great an idea it is, if it isn't ;) I just love honesty, for some strange reason...
Bla bla bla -- WOULD YOU?

Thanks in advance for your reaction!

Be bad,

M.

  1. Well, I might be biased here, but I love the hair. I bet you could do a bit of peek-a-boo color underneath, and no one would be the wiser.

  2. That mani is so cute and delicious-looking! It's especially adorable with your nail shape. I am totally hungry for some ice cream now lol. As for the hair, I love brightly colored hair and think you would look amazing, if your job allows that. Or if that's too drastic for work, maybe you can do highlights in a different color. :)

    1. ^^ Thank you, Yun! I think either I'll keep my natural hair color or I'll go all unnatural, but I still have to be patient for now :)

  3. Love the nails!!
    And I would LOVE to have red strands in my hair, but that probably won't help my patients taking me seriously... too bad!!!

    1. Thank you, Gosia! I know how you feel, I have the exact same problem right now... Too bad, yeah!

  4. Loving this mani! You did a really great job of capturing the look of ice cream... too good in fact. Now I'm craving ice cream... you're killin' me here! LOL
    In regards to the hair, I'm madly in love with blue and purple hair - it's just so gorgeous! Sadly, I work in a fairly conservative company so I think I'll be living vicariously through you if you take the plunge (do it! do it for all us gals stifled by their workplaces!!). Since I can't wear fun colors in real life, I make my gaming characters as colorful as possible. :)

    1. :D hahaha, Liz! Thank you! I am leaning to the exact same colors you mentionned, and I have the same problem you have. Conservative firm. BUT I will eventually have the occasion to dye my hair... and when the moment comes I will overload y'all with pictures :p

    Si quieres y puedes hazlo! Total, el cabello crece
    Un beso!

    1. Gracias :D Totalmente de acuerdo contigo. De hecho, ese fue mi argumento para teñirme de rojo a los 12 años ;) De momento tendré que esperar un poco, pero lo más seguro es que lo haga!

  6. I think colored hair is really outgoing and eyecatching. I personally love it just cause i get bored of my hair so fast but since my natural hair color is black ive bleached and damaged it so much so right now its undergoing some serious healing/resting time haha. If you do something with your hair pic pls!! Would love to see!

    Love the mani btw xo

    1. I think so too! My hair is dark brown so I really need to be sure before dyeing it platinum blonde! But I will probably do it when the time is right :) Thank you!

  7. Your scoops are def not too big - what are you talking about! It's icecream! If you don't have big scoops, what are you eating it for then? ;) hehehe - just kidding. They're not too big and I love the different size and colour in the sprinkles you added, which match with that awesome indie glitter polish: too cute!! :)
    As for pink, blue, purple, gradient hair, what have you, I wish I had the style (and the face completion) to rock those. I'm an anime fan and I just loooooove the whole thing - too sad I could never pull it off though :(
    If you still feel the urge to go for it in the near future, how about some midnight blue? That wouldn't scare clients much, would it? I, myself, wouldn't care less ;)

    1. Thanks Mina! :D I love unnatural hair colors too, specially blue and purple! Midnight blue was on my list but I'd rather go all in, you know? I'll have the time to rock a midnight blue when I'll be 40, but not a purple! Ahhh I can't wait!

  8. WOW gorgeous mani!!!! But the polish is 'krazy straws'! not 'i got a goodie bag! lol:)

  9. I have an obsession with ice cream so I love this mani a lot!
    And yeah, total fan of unnatural, vibrant, bright, whatnot haircolors! Unfortunately I have very dark hair which is hard to dye but I'd also love to try it one day. I think I'd go with pink or purple. Maybe you can try a dip dye? Not really the same but at least some crazy color on your hair :D I think for dip dye I would even try a green or turquoise ^-^

    1. :D Yay!! I know, your hair would be a little PITA to bleach... you have to be really sure before you do! I'd rather bleach all my hair at once and see if purple suits me than dip dye and then re-bleach the whole thing because I dig it so much :p I know I'm going to love it!

  10. Holy LOVE THIS!! Your nails are even the perfect shape for ice cream cones it's just perfection!!! LOL I don't think your scoops are too big.... just the size I like haha! You are so darn talented lady! :)

    And as far as unnatural hair colors I quite like them. I unfortunately am not allowed to wear them because I work at a bank but I've always wanted to rock some pink hair!! I think as long as it's done right it can look super beautiful. :)

    1. Thank you, Kristine! :D It means a lot coming from you! I'm still not over your Cut the Rope manicure!
      I am not allowed to wear those colors either right now, but... maybe in time? I dig that soooo much!

  12. First - I LOVE LOVE LOVE your ice cream nails!!! And I am so going to try and copy cat you!!!!!
    It looks perfect both the art itself and the polishes you chose for it!

    As for the hair color - I love it and I completely vote for GO FOR IT!!! There's only one issue with it and that is the natural growth, cause there the colors are not looking very good... That is why I would suggest mix it in some sort of striped hair style that will create the different shades in your hair deliberately.
    Btw - when I was 16 I had pink and blue stripes in my hair. And then several years later I wanted to have my entire hair blue, but when I went to the hair dresser, she looked at my hair and said it was too red to be able to get it to look blue. So it was very uncertain what would come out of it and I chickened out...

  13. I wouldn't, but that's my personality. To everyone its hair. And colours, and nail shape, you know what I mean!
    I love the ice creams, esp. the pistachio nail LOL! That's so yummy!

  14. Oh wow your ice cream nails look delicious!
    I like colourful hair on other people but personally I don't have the confidence to pull it off myself.

  15. Your nails looks so yummy :D
    I like unnatural hair colors but not on me though ! Plus, it requires a lot of upkeep so it's not for me ^^. But I do dye my hair with henna and it works great :)

    1. ^^ Thank you!! Yup, that's also one of my concerns... but I may be able to put up with it for a while :)

  16. Great! The day I start a diet, you make ice cream nails...thanks! LOL, actually these are so cute! And they're not to big, they're double scoops!!
    As for your hair, I love unnatural hair colors. I used to dye my hair dark purple all the time!!! (even when I worked in a law office). I say go for it!!

  19. Super funny manicure, and so well-done! And about your scoops: they're not huge IMHO. :P
    About the coloured hair: when I was 21 (I still studied at university) I had blonde hair with purple mèches. Then I changed and I had a sort of shatush - the base was still blonde but the contrast colour was... Hot pink. :D

  20. Ahh love the ice-cream nails! How very delicious! :D Hehe, I'm all for unnatural hair colours as well! No point dyeing if it's not for something different than norm! (my policy at least..) XD I'd say go for blue! But purple would mean you get a little bit of pink and blue mix. HAahahaha! Just go for what suits you :)

    1. :D thank you, hon! blue and purple are the colors I am hesitating between! So... I just need to decide :)

  23. Your ice cream nails look so good! I love the cones, the scoops, and the blue glitter nails!

    And I like colourful hair, so pick a colour and go for it!

  24. First, this is awesome! I think it's perfect and wish I had thought of ice cream!

    As for hair color...my signature color is hot pink. I haven't worn it pink in awhile since I was trying to let my hair regain some health, but it's about time to slap some on now. I say go for it!

  25. I love the mani - and now I want ice cream!! As for the hair? If I were younger, and not looking for a job, I would be all over it. I say yes! if it will make you happy.
