I love zebra-print nail patterns. They're simple, fun, and usually fairly fast. For today's nail art, I wanted to do a slightly different twist on it, so I added a 'frame' of hot pink to the edge of the nail. I also did accent nail in polka dots, which breaks up the abundance of zebra pattern. Plus, as an added bonus, I used Color Club Raspberry Rush from the new Color Club Wicked Sweet collection, so they smell delicious! (even through top coat!)


I used American Apparel Cotton as a base, with American Apparel Hassid for the zebra stripes, then framed the nail in Color Club Raspberry Rush. Topped it all off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat

  16. I love this one! Truth be told I've been following this blog for months and you've really gotten me interested in nail art. Now I do my nails weekly and it's always something different (daily is too much for me!). Anyways I love so many of your designs that I created a file on my computer filled with pictures of designs I've wanted to recreate. Your skill level is above mine no doubt but I only recreated two successfully...Seriously this is my new hobby!
