I Tried It: Zebra Striped Nails!

Lately I've been seeing zebra striped nails a lot, so I took to YouTube to find out how to get the look. Using this video tutorial I did my own Zebra nails. I was pleased with my results and it was fairly easy to do!

Here are my supplies:
L to R: Sally Hansen Celeb City, LA Colors Art Deco nail art polish in Black, Orly Sec N Dry, Zoya Armor. 
Note about Orly Sec n Dry: I only used this topcoat on 2 nails because I noticed it was making the black polish I used to make my stripes smear, even though I waited 15 minutes for it to dry! Not sure why, but I switched to Zoya Armor as my topcoat.

The final look:
 Super shiny silver! I really like SH Celeb City.

For my first try, these are not bad! The thing I like about zebra striped nails is that each nail is not exactly the same. You don't have to be perfect with placing the stripes and ultimately they look better when both hands are done. This look is not that time consuming either. I just did two coats of Celeb City, let that dry and then went to work on the stripes. It only added about an additional 10 mins to my regular routine. 

Do you like animal print nails? Want to try it? Been there, done that? Let me know!
