Manicure Mondays: Zebra

Ever since it has been getting hot in my parts, all I've wanted to do is wear the craziest, most colorful nails around! I just got this new, absolutely gorgeous Zoya color that epitomizes summer - the brightest, boldest hot pink ever. I'm not a pink girl by any means, but this just screamed out to me.
I thought I'd kick it up a notch even more by adding some badass zebra stripes using a striping brush. Just two coats of the Zoya color, then by using a striping brush, I added random and slightly messy horizontal stripes across my nail. Since it's supposed to be kind of organic, it wasn't too hard to make it look good. Mistakes are welcome!

{what i used}

CND stickey anchoring base coat
Zoya lola
Cacee color artist with striping brush in black
Seche Vite dry fast topcoat
Nicole by OPI drying drops


  1. CUTE! what did you use drying drops for? also, do you feel like seche vite makes your nail polish come off in like whole pieces?! i feel like it does that to me sometimes and it makes me not like it even though i really want to love it.

  2. @ sammy s: i use drying drops to make it dry a lot faster! it literally only takes 1 minute to be dry to the touch - 5 to be dry completely.

    i used to love seche vite because it helped dry the nail polish quickly, but now i'm not as big of a fan because it shrinks my nail polish (towards the tips) and gets thick really fast! i suggest poshe topcoat :)
