green zebra nails


here is a fun ( and quick ) zebra mani. Not as well executed as my last two zebra nail looks, this was a rush job♥ I really wanted to get the best out of AVON Electric Green, here I have layered it over a lovely pastel green but still had to use 3 coats to get to a perfect opacity. I added the deep green zebra stripes to help disguise some brush marks and a cracked index nail.


 Stuff I used for this mani; Avon Electric Green Icing Green stripe polish and Nailene TC




 last week                                                                                   today















layering didn't help much

I still would need 3 coats to hide any brush marks or bare spots, all I really achieved with layering AVON Electric Green was a bit of a deeper colour. I do love this polish below; Icing Bamboozled Again, and wear it on my toes quite often. Below - on my pinky nail - is 1 coat of Avon Electric Green layered over 2 coats of Icing Bamboozled Again.

I love the zebra... the green is to die for but too bad it's from Avon! I had bought some Avon polishes a while back and they are so flippin' hard to put on! It's like you have to work 2 and 3 times as hard as normal to get them to look good, lol. I'm glad to see its not just me!
