Pop Zebra

Hey everyone!!  I really felt like wearing something fun with an awesome pop color, so here's what I ended up with ...


I started off with two coats of Color Secrets Snow White, a crisp white creme.


I then used my striping brush with Sinful Colors Black on Black to create a zebra stripe pattern.  I started to use one of my stamps for the zebra print, but then I realized that I don't have any zebra stamps that are large enough to cover my entire nail.  I was a little intimidated at the thought of doing this freehand, since I've never tried it before, but it was actually really easy and fun too!


I wanted some subtle sparkles, so I added one coat of Northern Lights Holographic Top Coat.


For my pop color, I paired my dotting tools with Color Club Warhol, a bright neon pink.  Since I knew the neon would be a bit on the sheer side, I made sure to apply a second set of dots over the first set for a brighter and more opaque finish.  I followed with one coat of SV.


I really love the final look!  The zebra stripes are such fun to wear, and the pink dots add such a bright and girly flare to it!


I really hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!




Colors: Color Secrets Snow White, Sinful Colors Black on Black, Color Club Warhol

  5. I love this so much! I am a sucker for zebra! I could probably never do this without a stencil but it really is amazing! I would probably use a neon green instead of pink. I love seeing all your nail designs!
