blue zebra

my first attempt at zebra print! what do you think? zebra, like leopard is an easy to-do design and all it takes is some practice. just remember, it's all in the wrist and doesn't have to perfect. 

step 1: paint the base color. i used two coats of lapiz of luxury by essie.

step 2: after the base is completely dry, using a black two-way nail stripping pen, alternate sides and interlock the stripes. i followed a video by Andrea from obsessedwnails blog

step 3: wait about 5 minutes for the black to dry then apply one coat of Seche Vite dry fast top coat.
