How to: Get Zebra Print Nails

With summer on its way, our nails have been looking a little brighter and bolder. Consider using your typical solid colors to create patterns, like these zebra stripe nails! Here's our tutorial to create this animal print design:

What You Need:
  • White nail polish (or any color you want to be your base)
  • Black nail polish (or any color you want to be your stripe)
  • Clear top coat nail polish
  • Thin paintbrush or toothpick
  • Nail polish remover
  • Q-tip

How to:

1. Apply a clear base coat or top coat. Although not necessary, this will keep the base color from streaking.

2. Then apply 2 to 3 coats of the base color polish. Between each coat, make sure you wait for it to dry!

3. Now for the fun part: painting the stripes. Pull up an basic image of zebra print and use it as a guide. Take short strokes. If needed, you can practice on a piece of paper first.

4. Make sure the stripes are really dry. Then add another layer of top coat.

5. Finally, remove any smudges or excess nail polish on your finger with a q-tip and nail polish remover.
