Okay. So it's officially fall. But it is never too cold for ice cream or neon nail polish so why not have your cake AND eat it too?

I wanted something simple and sweet. Get it? Sweet because I has ice cream on my nails. Okay, so my jokes are cheesy, but they'll never be as bad as my 11th grade social studies teacher. More on Mr Kelly later on.

I started with a base of Icing Candy Shop (swatch here) and paint some drips using a white nail art pen I bought in a set of five from urban Outfitters.

Fun fact: Mr. Nail A College Drop Out calls UO a hipster thrift store.

Once that was dry I apply a layer of top coat and a dab of nail glue to secure my 3D ice cream pieces.

These pieces are a lot bigger than what I assumed they would be. But hey, y'all know when it comes to nails I like everything ostentatious.

They retail for $2.55 on BornPrettyStore.com and are available in twelve patterns.

Don't forget to use promo code NCL91 at checkout for 10% off your entire purchase!

Now for the corniest joke I ever heard from one of my high school history teachers. You ready?
Why does Snoop Dogg carry an umbrella? Fo' drizzle!
Tune in. Drop out. Love polish.
