Mani-Monday: Zebra with a pop

I wanted to create a zebra print nail look with a different take on it. So I decided to add a pop of color. I love the end results! You can recreate this look with many different colors, which makes it so much more fun. You can experiment with any color you would like. To get this look: 
You will need:
Base coat
White nail polish
Purple nail polish
Black acrylic or nail polish
Top coat
Striping brush or toothpick
Makeup sponge
Step 1: First, apply your base coat. Then apply two coats of your white polish. I used ‘White Hot’ by Sephora by OPI. Wait a few minutes for your nail polish to dry before doing the sponging.
Step 2: Next, using makeup sponge (you can cut off a small piece of the sponge to use), dip it into your purple nail polish, I used ‘Jo’mina’ by Illamasqua, and sponge it onto your nail in a few places.
Step 3: Then, using a striping brush or toothpick, dip it in the black acrylic or nail polish and create the zebra pattern. Wait for about 15 minutes for your nails to dry before applying the top coat. 
Step 4: Lastly, apply a generous amount of top coat and you’re done! This nail look has great versatility, so change up the colors and have fun with it.
