A Different Take on Rainbow Zebra Print Nails

Hi guys!

Tonight I'll be going to my favourite Aunt's 50th birthday party and I needed an awesome nail art design for it. She loves rainbows (I guess it runs in the family), so I knew I had to incorporate rainbow colours into my design.

I was also in the mood for some zebra print nails since I haven't done a zebra design in months! However, I didn't want to go the traditional route and do a rainbow background with black zebra stripes, so instead I went with a white background and made my zebra stripes using rainbow colours!


I started with a base of white using Wet 'n' Wild French White. Then, using a striping brush, I freehanded on the zebra stripes using six rainbow-coloured polishes.


The red is China Glaze Salsa, the orange is China Glaze Papaya Punch, the yellow is Color Club Almost Famous, the green is Color Club Twiggie, the blue is Zoya Robyn and the purple is OPI Funky Dunkey. For the most part, I did two zebra stripes of each colour, but if your nails are shorter and you still want to try this design, just go for one stripe of each colour.


I love how this design turned out and I'm sure my Aunt will as well!

Enjoy your Saturday everyone!
