NOTD: Pistachio Ice Cream

Hi guys,

I know I've not done a nail post for a while, but seeing as the weather was so nice this weekend (weird I know!) I thought I would do some summery nails!

MUA Pistachio Ice Cream Nails

I bought this beautiful MUA Pistachio Ice Cream and wanted to try it out, I love the cool and vibrant colour which is perfect for Spring/ Summer. On the feature nail I used Collection's 47 Milkshake to make the cone, MUA's Lush Lilac for the ice cream and MUA's Bright Coral for the cherry on top, to highlight the cone and ice cream I used Barry M's black nail art pen.


I hope you all had a great weekend and like this look! Let me know what you think in the comments below :)

Audio: JAY Z x JAY ELECTRONICA - "We Made It" Freestyle


Yes what you're seeing is right, you're not imagining it! The two Jay's decided to drop a gem on us this Sunday morning by doing a freestyle over Soulja Boy's and Drake's ''We Made It''! 

It does seem mind-boggling that Jay and Hov have come together for a freestyle, but hopefully this means we're in for a treat this year, maybe even an Act II? (wishful thinking maybe).
