Zebracorn and Rainbow Nail Art

Allo polish Pals!

How are you all doing today? I hope you've had an amazing weekend?

I didn't get up to much at all, I played around with some new make up I picked up at work, I love testing products out. I recently switched up my foundation to Bare Minerals and I am loving it so far. Today and until Tuesday I'll be spending some time editing posts, creating new designs before I head back to work on Wednesday.

Did you know that yesterday (Sunday 8th April depending on when you are reading this!) was 'Unicorn day' – no joke. It really exists. I've painted quite a few unicorn designs in my blogging days so I decided to shake things up a little by making a zebra-corn!








For this design I went back to the Breathable range by ORLY – I am so addicted to all of the ORLY polishes I've reviewed but I felt like the rainbow colours would pop nicely on something that wasn't stark white.

On my thumb and pinky I began with my base coat of OPI's Nail Envy and once dry applied two coats of my ORLY 'White Tips' white nail polish. On my remaining nails I applied two coats of ORLY's 'Aloe Goodbye!' which I then sparkled up using Polish Me, Royalty's 'Unicornicopia' – my all time favourite scattered holo. I applied a thin coat of Pro-FX top coat to all my nails which is a great top coat to lay down acrylic paints on top of.

On my white nails I created an acrylic gradient, using rainbow colours of acrylic paint and a brush I blended each colour into the next, I then took my detailing brush and white acrylic paint to create the stripes on top.

I used acrylic paints and and my Pure Color brush in size 10 to create all the details and my zebracorn. I sealed the design in with another layer of top coat and eventually added my matte top coat on top (sadly this kills the holo but, ya know. Try everything! )

What do you think of my Zebracorn? Do you like unicorns and rainbows?


Thank you so much for visiting, I hope you have a fantastic day. Don't forget to leave your comments on this design below. I'll catch you again on Wednesday!



Love,
Ithi

  12. I love your Zebracorn! It’s so cute. It reminds me of Fruit Stripes gum (I’m not sure if they have that outside the US). I love unicorns and rainbows.
