I used Sally Hansen Whirlwind White as a base for all the nails and various neon Art Club striping polishes for the design. For added detail I used a silver glitter striping polish in random places.

Neon Ombre Zebra
After fixing up my ragged cuticles and letting my nails breathe over night I succumbed to the call of my nail polish stash. I originally wanted to try a neon splatter manicure over white but the whole straw blowing thing just wasn't working for me. Instead, I opted for a spin on an ombre manicure by doing some diagonal zebra-esque stripes in a purple-yellow gradient. The silver glitter adds a bit more fun to the already wild design. I think it's so tacky and bright and hysterical but I do love it all the same. It's something definitely different from my usual and a refreshing change from all the tribal and florals I've been doing.
