This is an awesome nail design! Found it on YouTube a long time ago and it's just so different and unique! If you love the zebra print...you'll be in love with this nail art!!!

Of course you want to start with clean nails, and apply your base coat!!! Base coats are great as far as protecting the nails, which is why I use a strengthener base coat!
