My Most Favorite Zebra Manicure

9:00:00 AM

So many posts, so little time.  I keep thinking to myself that I should change my posting schedule and post manicures on an every 2 day basis, but then I'm scared I will run out of manicures and be left with no posts.  Ahh, Nail Blogger Problems.  Seriously though, I feel like I'm painting my nails more than ever and I always have an extra post or three.  This manicure has sat in the drafts folder here on the blog for way too long.  It's a shame too, because the pictures are perfect and the manicure was one of my favorites!

When I sat down to do this manicure, I still had nubs.  Yes, from when I broke my fingernail about, hmm a month ago.  I told you this is a back log.  I wanted nail art but wasn't sure what would look good on lil nubbins.  Then it hit me, animal print always looks good.  I planned on doing a plain white zebra manicure because it had been awhile since I did something black and white, and then I saw my new bottle of INM Bikini sitting and calling my name.

Let's take a look.

Colors Used:

  • OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls
  • INM - Bikini
  • Orly - Liquid Vinyl
Amazing, right?  Ahhh the pretty pink and black pop so well off of My Boyfriend Scales Walls.  For those of you who do not own a bottle of this OPI polish, you need to run to your nearest beauty supply store and demand they find you a bottle.  It's such an amazing white polish, but with the subtle grey undertones, it doesn't jump off your nail screaming HEY I'M A WHITE POLISH!  Easiest way to say this, it's not obnoxiously bright.  It also has a perfect formula where in two coats you have full coverage with no bald spots.  I need to buy a back up bottle while I still can.  Or OPI just needs to make it part of their regular collection.

Bikini by INM is such a great color also.  I still need to swatch this polish but haven't gotten around to it.  For nail art, and sponging like this, it's a great polish!  It doesn't dry too fast where you can't work with it, and it applies like a dream to the base.

To get the look, I painted on two thin coats of MBSW, sponged on Bikini, and drew zebra prints with Orly Liquid Vinyl.  Easy peasy.  I was going to do a tutorial, but eh, kind of got lazy.  If you would like one, I can make it!

What do you think?  Loving the look?

Until next time, <3.
