Here are my first attempts at zebra stripes. The one on the left was done with black polish and a toothpick (so not EASY like they claimed on YouTube!) It was very thick and looked sloppy so I jotted off to WalMart and picked up some nail art black polish with the thin skinny brush. The right side came out much better (except the mismatched nail lengths). Have you ever found it hard to 'SAW' down the rest of your nails to match the new broken ones???? :( I finally did it though.
