Zebra Nail Art

Updated on July 30, 2012

Animal prints are hot trends in almost all areas - bedrooms, shoes, clothes , everything. So how about painting your nails with some Zebra print? This is a very easy nail art for beginners who are interested in nail art and want to learn more. This requires 'Striper Brush' - a nail tool to paint zebra stripes. You don't have to buy it seperately. For beginners I suggest getting you a cheaper nail art tool set so that you have all the tools with you and it is rather cheaper to buy all the tools at once.

So, lets go ahead and explore how to create zebra nail art designs.

Things you will need

1. Base coat

2. White Nail Polish

3. Black Nail Polish

4. Striper Brush

5. Top Coat

Steps to Create Zebra Nails :

1. Paint your nails with a base coat to protect them.

2. Paint your nails with white nail polish. If you wanna do Zebra French Nails, then just paint the tips. ( Learn how to create French Nails here )

3. Now take a striper brush, load it with black nail polish and create thin long stripes over the nails . Paint them in the pattern you wish. Take care while drawing the stripes to taper the ends on the stripes.

4. Allow it to dry and paint it with a top coat to protect your nail art

Other Patterns

Zebra Nails not only have to be in black and white colors. You can create them according to your own tastes . Black stripes on pink nails is also quite popular. Or you can create French Zebra Nails as shown in the picture.

Other Easier Techniques to Create Zebra Nails

Using Fake Zebra Nails : Likewise, if you are not a pro with all the nail tools or if you are in a fashion crisis, you have Fake Zebra Nails to aid you. These come with pre-printed zebra nails on them and all you have to do is , take some nail glue and fix them on your nails. And you are all set to the party!

Using Zebra Nail Stamps : You can use Konad Nail Stamps and Zebra Nail Art Image Plates to create Zebra nail designs.

You are going to load the image plate containing zebra nail print with black nail polish and wipe it once with the scraper. Then you press the rubber stamp over the image plate, get the design imprinted on it and stamp it on your nails.

Using Zebra Nail Strips : Now, this is the real fast on-the-go technique. Zebra Nail Strips are just nail strips with design over them. All you have to do is just peel the sticker off and apply. That's it !!

So, have fun creating some chic Zebra Nail Designs.
