Unleashing the beast…or the zebra within! Simple Nail Designs
People seem to have an obsession with animal prints. Nothing is off limits including leopard print dresses, crocodile skin boots and soft, tiger blankets. It is no wonder that women love animal prints on their nails, too! Women love simple nail designs, especially the French nail manicure. The French nail manicure can get boring at times, so it is time to spice it up a bit with some animal influence.
Simple Nail Designs with Zebra Tip Nails
Zebra print nails are simple nail designs that add a bit of mystery (and innovation) to your nails. There are various ways to achieve a French nail manicure. You can go to the salon, apply white sticker tips, use nail polish or use white nail pens. The only additional item you will need for the zebra simple nail design is a black nail art brush.
To achieve the zebra affect, apply random black lines to your French manicure. These lines should only be applied to the tips of your nails. Start at the left side of your nail and draw a horizontal line towards the middle of your nail. This horizontal line should not be straight. It should have a slight blend to it in order to give the illusion of movement. Also, notice that the black lines start off thick and then taper off. Starting at the left side of your nail again, draw another line and extend it towards the middle of your nail. Repeat this process on the right side. The zebra lines that start on the right side of the nail should not be painted at the same level as the black stripes on the left side. In other words, they should be drawn in between the black stripes on the left side. If you are nervous about drawing the lines, practice on a piece of paper first. Each nail should have a total of four black stripes. Of course, you can always change the amount of lines per nail in order to make your simple nail designs more interesting. What you end up with are simple nail designs that only require you to touch up your French nail manicure. As always, follow-up with a clear topcoat of nail polish.
