Zebra Stripes

Going off my DYI high (the fumes from the bleach I think) I figured that we are right smack dab in the middle of all of these holiday parties that I should share how to do my favorite nails!

So I once went to the salon and got a manicure like this and after I saw what the nail tech did I figured I could do it at home


First pick a color and paint you nails one solid color- mine was ruby pumps from china glaze because I want to sparkle come Christmas day.


Next you take your "stripes" nail polish (don't use those weird pens they sell- won;t do the trick!) and use the picture of zebra stripes as a guide and sort of lightly squiggle it to about halfway across your nail.


Switch it and do the other side and keep alternating back and forth.

Repeat on all nails


The pictures are really hard to see and switches between "shades" but it was really hard to photograph- maybe next time i'll try doing this on white again- but that ruby pumps draws me in every time!


This is really super easy so please try it- do different colors and let me see how they come out!
