Tiger Nail Art

I saw a photo of some zebra patterned nails, and thought that they would look good with an orange base, to be tiger nails!

It's a very simple design- All you need is a base colour, and either a thin paintbrush and black nail varnish, or a black nail art pen.

Start by painting your nails all over in your chosen base colour. I used an orange Nails Inc Polish.




Next, using the nail art pen, or thin paint brush, paint stripes on each side of your nails.





And there you have your tigerrrrr nails ;)



You could also do bumble bees, zebras, or other stripey things if you used a different base colour! But I liked tiger stripes best :)
