Cool Zebra

Hi Everyone! 
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Summer so far!
Things have been a little slow on my blog, and I do apologize for that!
As my kids get older, every Summer, every holiday, it seems to 
be increasingly more difficult to find time and reign them in...
and I haven't even reached the teens yet!
YIKES!

But I do have a new design today, and I've also got some
hauls and swap posts coming up as well.

So today, I've got a blue turquoise gradient zebra print. 
I don't know why, but I always associate animal prints 
with Summer, I guess it is just the boldness and the fun of them.
I always like using unusual color combinations with my prints too
to keep it even more interesting.
I've had several people comment that this feels more aquatic, 
and reminds them of drifting seaweed....that works too!
This design was inspired by so many others I've seen, I just had to 
try it out and make it my own. 
I hope you like it!


The products I used were:

NYX Girls Polish in -Maven
Kleancolor in - Pastel Teal
Ruby Kisses in - Teal Envy
Kleancolor in - Neon Aqua
L.A. Colors Art Deco in - Black
Cosmetic Sponge
Aqua Doughnut Sequins
Black Rhinestones 2mm
Pearls 1mm
Hexagon Black Holo Glitter
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat

Very pretty! If you went with the seaweed idea on them, a seahorse on one nail as an accent nail would be super cute! :)
