Ben & Jerry's Nails

I am a girl, so therefore I can eat disgusting amounts of ice cream and blame it on hormones. Or boys. Or both. Ben & Jerry's has been my unhealthy treat of choice lately, and it is oh so delicious. Earlier this week I polished off my pint of strawberry cheesecake while lying in bed and bawling as Brooke Davis and Julian Baker tied the knot on "One Tree Hill."

When I was able to put down my spoon for a few minutes, I decided to pay homage to two men in my life who never let me down: Ben & Jerry.

For the sky blue background, I used two coats of OPI Can't Find My Czechbook. It's not quite a perfect match for Ben & Jerry's blue, but it's very close! The hills were done using a dotting tool and a small brush—the light green is OPI Gargantuan Green Grape and the darker is OPI Green-Wich Village. For the clouds, I used my dotting tool and OPI Alpine Snow.

I can't draw cows to save my life, so I opted to feature a black and white cow print on my accent nail. The base is two coats of Alpine Snow and the black is from new bottle of Sinful Colors Black on Black (my Sally Hansen bottle is running low!).

Time to crack open my pint of Everything But The...
