We All Scream For Ice-Cream!

Hair & Beauty, The Dressing Room

Ice-cream, ice-cream, we all scream for ice-cream!!

Just think of the fuzzy feeling you got in your tummy as a child when you would hear the ice-cream truck pull up in your street, or when mum would come home with a tub of Neapolitan ice cream.

If you were anything like us we would always try and pick the colours that would create the prettiest combo, and let’s be honest there was nothing prettier than a scoop of vanilla, strawberry & chocolate 😉

mags_LR_4533These soft, pretty colours used together are creating a nail trending combo! dff465ff35765106d5ee08e6bcc62ec1

How much do you LOVE ice-cream 😉 ?
