Geez this week is flying by! Had to whip out something quick for today so did a marble technique on a bit of parchment paper to create some color-darted layers using a few colors from the China Glaze Hunger Games Collection — Fast Track (sparkly coffee ice cream color, reminds me of China Glaze Classic Camel), Dress Me Up (smoky rose) and Foie Gras. Hopped in the shower while that dried then it down on the nails and sealed with Seche Vite before running out the door — definitely on the easy & quick end of the spectrum, but still interesting to look at!
And the name? Something about the melted look of this plus the colors made me think of the Tchoupitoulas Challenge at Creole Creamery here in New Orleans: eight scoops of ice cream and your choice of eight toppings served in grand fashion with whipped cream, cherries, and wafers. It’s insane. Had a friend make a run at it a couple of years ago — he got super close, but close doesn’t quite cut it, and the melted scoop-ish of ice cream with topping debris left in the monster bowl looked a little like this.
