Green Ombre Zebra Print

Hello lovelies! Happy Friday! Hope everyone have lovely weekend. I honestly can't say what has come over me lately! I've been having an animal print mood. A few days ago I reviewed some polishes by Jamberry Nail Lacquer, I had no idea what to create with this specific shade. Did I mention green is not one of my favorite colors! :/
So when I finally received my 3 free special from Zoya the other day. It finally hit me what design to do, Ombre and Zebra print. The moment I saw my new polish, it was perfect shade to use. I just knew one of these days this week, I wanted to do zebra prints again. What a better way to end the week! So lets get to it: 

For the base, I applied two coats of Jamberry Lacquer Envy. I was skeptic about trying this polish; I actually loved it. It reminded me of a Christmas tree green, however, I wanted to be out of the box and see how it would look on an ombre. So Zoya Mitzi was the perfect shade to use. 
Now for the ombre, I used a piece of make-up sponge and layered (in order) Jamberry Envy, Zoya Mitzi and OPI Alpine SnowWith a nail art brush or stripping brush, I drew the stripes horizontally using Revlon Black Magic, for the zebra print. Lastly, I then sealed the designs with Duri- Super Fast Dry Through Top Coat, that's it! 
Overall, I was hesitant at first with the combination of the design and colors, but it sorta grew on me. I love to to step out of the box and create something different and this was definitely different, for me!
Hope all of you enjoyed my post today!
