Acid Zebra Vacation Nails

Hello, beautiful!

I just spent an incredible weekend in Melbourne! I hadn't been there before, but I'm absolutely addicted to travelling and seeing new places. It was great! I saw Little Penguins, and went to the top of the tallest building in the southern hemisphere, and went to cute little bars and cafes to my heart's content. I might move there next! It's brilliant.

Naturally, I wanted some cute nails for my trip.

You guys know I love rainbows :D so here's my take on the Acid Zebra look!

The base is a sponged gradient of Zoya Charisma, Orly Blue Collar, and Sinful Colors Neon Melon. With these three sorta-primary colours, I was almost able to get a full rainbow effect. I made the mistake of sponging these over a couple of coats of the yellow, though, instead of over a white base. Charisma is more fuchsia than it looks in these photos (as you can see here) since it mixed with the yellow base to make a more orangey-red tip.

Next, I added one coat each of two different holo glitters--BYS Glitter Crystal and China Glaze Fairy Dust. They're basically the same type of topper, but Glitter Crystal has larger and more irregular glitters than Fairy Dust. I wanted lots of depth and sparkle!

Over that, I have stamped the zebra-print image from Konad plate m57 using Konad black special polish. On the ring finger, as you can see, I did only half the nail in a diagonal pattern, just to switch it up a little. Last, went over the line with Stripe Rite silver glitter.

Topped with Seche Vite.

One more, because everyone loves blurry pics of holo glitter ;)

I hope you liked these! I love 'em so much I'm still wearing them. I'll change it up tomorrow, though, so stay tuned for more soon! xoxo
