Beauty Tip: Zebra Striped Nails


Nail art is an excellent way express yourself. Whether your feeling conservative or bold, you can let your mani do that talking. Every girl has a day where the french manicure just doesn’t cut it. When you feel like taking a walk on the wild side, follow the steps below to give yourself a zebra striped manicure- at home!
Step 1. Select a base color. The great thing about this mani is that it can be done in many ways. In this tutorial I am going to stick to the classic white with black stripes, but feel free to substitute the white for pink, purple, blue or any other color!
Step 2. Once the base color is dry, begin your stripes! You will need to use the thin nail art brushes for this. The key to stripes is gentle even strokes on each side of the nail. Be sure to angle them out in the same direction.
Step 3-6. Repeat stripes on as many nails as you’d like.
Step 7. Once your stripes are dry, finish with a thick top coat.
Voila! You now know how to give yourself a zebra striped manicure. Keep in mind when doing this with your opposite hand, it can get a little tricky. Just take it slow and you’ll be on your way to earning your stripes in no time!
