Easy Zebra Nail Art Tutorial

I love to procrastinate. I love it so much. So, as it's time to revise for the most important exams of my life (so far), it makes sense to break out the nail varnish, kick up my heels and watch a few episodes of 30 Rock. I'll do some geography notes when this episode ends... IN 5 hours time. As I painted my nails mid-Chaucer note making, I had to rope in my mum to let me do the step-by-step photos on her. I know this isn't exactly the most amazing/intricate nail art design, but I think it looks great. Plus, any excuse to make a gif...

Step 1: Paint your nails white (or any light colour). I used Model's Own in Snow White.

Step 2: When dry, use a black nail art pen/sharpie to outline small triangles on the nails.

Step 3: Fill in the triangles with the black pen.

Step 4: Repeat! Also, when it comes to top coat, I found that even after letting my nails dry for ages the top coat still smudged them, so I would advise going without. Especially if you use a sharpie. Here's a funky gif to illustrate the process!
