Ice Cream Cones! (Tutorial) Day 10 of my 30 Day Stamping Challenge

I was inspired to do these from NailCraze. She is an amazing nail artist. Go take a look!
I haven't been able to eat a lot of ice cream lately. My body is becoming lactose intolerant. So why not paint some on my nails right? Although, now when I look at my nails I crave it.

Products used:
Base color for these is by e.l.f. in Nude
Stamped with Essie in Little Brown Dress and Barielle in Car-ess
Plate used is Pueen plate 25
Acrylic paints.

I put a pictorial with these today. If you have a stamp similar to this one you can do this. Or you can stripe on the cone with a striping brush.
