*Beauty Shortcut: Zebra Print Nails*

As much as I love painting my nails and experimenting with different colors, I've never really considered myself a "nail art person". Mostly because I thought it had to be time consuming and require a bunch of special tools. However, the other night I decided to get creative with a few toothpicks and the end result inspired me to make the video below! Using toothpicks to create nail polish designs is incredibly easy, inexpensive and precise. No other fancy tools needed!

Products Used:
Sinful Colors Polish in Dream On
OPI Polish in Yoga-Ta Get This Blue!
A couple of toothpicks
Seche Vite Quick Dry Top Coat
