I started with a black matte base, and used a black striping polish to make the shiny zebra stripes. These are much better then my first and second attempt at zebra stripes. Even though I have seen hundreds or gorgeous photos of the matte look in a plethora of colours, I still think that a dark vampy or black matte polish is #1.

This was a black matte base, then I added the top coat to the tips..... I wanted to try without the french tip guides, I thought that a ridge from the tip guide would look funny.....
..... and one more of this fabulous zebra
I LOVE that zebra mani! I don't think I would have ever thought of something like that, but now I've got to try it :)
Surely I should be able to do this without producing a complete mess. I LOVE this. Watch my space....No, don't. I'll let ya know.
I love this! I seriously need to play around with matte/shiny manicures. I'm not as talented to try to freehand zebra stripes though, so i'll probably stick with stamps! :P
This is fantastic Dee! I love your matte zebra look!
This looks awesome! What black did you use?
Amazeballs (can you tell that's my new favourite word?) Whenever I try a matte/shiny nail art it never comes off well, maybe black is the way to go...
Love the zebra mani! I've tried to do this before with konad and it didn't work very well. Might have to try it free hand. Yours looks great!
Love your Zebra mani ^_^
Soo simple & cute . I love it !
geez, very stunning nails! :)
I think black polish with black matte is one of the most effective manicures. This is stunning :-)
This is so cute! Very creative too!:)
<3 the zebra mani!!
Oh, I love this look!
Thanks for the plug opportunity!
That's really sexy looking! Love it.
These look amazing. I need to start playing around with matter vs shiney. The black on black works really well. Makes it look very misterious... :-)
Adoro essa decoração de unhas!
O esmalte de unhas foco contrasta lindamente com os brilhos!
Loving the stripes!

Awesome and very classy at the same time! I have always wanted to try a matte/ shiny look; but wanted to try konading a matte. Beautiful!
Happy Mother's Day to all!
I love your matte textures! It's amazing what can be done with one color and some matte polish.
I am definitely with you on the dark and vampy look with the matte polish. I love the zebra stripes too, they look awesome!
Love these looks! Amazing inspiration thanks :)
This mani is amazing! I love the combo between black matt and shiny!!
Those nails are so... beautiful!! Love them!! (-:
