Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough #MonthlyMani

July 16, 2014

Hello, friends!!!!!!  I can hardly contain my excitement to share the very first #MonthlyMani – a brand new series of themed nail art posts!


That’s right!  Now, every month – on the 3rd Wednesday of every month – you can see a brand new nail art post right here on my blog with plenty of links to other fabulous bloggers and their fantastic manicures.  Today’s theme just happens to be ice cream, seeing as how July is National Ice Cream Month and all!  ;)


Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is probably my all-time favorite flavor of ice cream, especially Thrifty’s chocolate chip cookie dough straight from the Thrifty’s ice cream counter inside the drug store.  I have countless memories of getting Thrifty’s ice cream with family and friends on hot summer days and cool summer evenings.

My manicure includes a base of white polish with nude half moons on the tips of each nail, for the cookie dough, of course, and irregular polka dots to make up the chocolate chips.  Whaddya think??


What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream??  Don’t forget to check out my manicure-paintin’ pals for their ice cream inspired nail art:

Piniel from Pins-Place
Justine from The Two Cent Chick
Lanerbell from Just the Polish
Jacki and Leslie from Sistas from Cali


I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s tasty treat, and don’t forget to keep posted on the 3rd Wednesday of every month for more #MonthlyMani goodness!  As always, thanks for reading!  Love, Kristi :)


PS. Do you have a blog or a passion for nail art??  Join us and link up next month!  Just send me an email ( or leave a comment below!  Also, keep in touch on twitter to find out each month’s theme!

      Thanks!! Mmmm chocolate peanut butter is a very, very close second place, but only because I have to go a bit further and pay a bit more to get it haha! I’m lazy and it doesn’t have the same sentimental value as chocolate chip cookie dough does for me. :)

      I always have a hard time taking photos of my nails (is it just me or are hands super weird looking close up??), so trust me when I say there are a TON that got discarded haha! :)
