A creative misadventure: The freehand zebra print that looks more like uncoordinated zig zags manicure

I decided to attempt a freehand manicure again. This time I painted zebra stripes with black acrylic paint. I'm not real happy with the results, but I know a few of you on the facebook page mentioned that you wanted to see it on the blog.

So here it is in all of its sparkling glory.
Yeah, not exactly quite zebra like is it? It's more zig zag like, if anything.
Uncoordinated zig zags. I probably needed to use a thinner brush. I can't draw to save myself which is why I struggle with freehand manicures so much. Maybe next time I'll just stick to using my konad stamps. On the positive side, painting freehand with acrylic paint is much easier than it is with nail polish.
The silver giltter polish I used for this manicure is by Simpli Cosmetic Collection which I bought from a $2 store.
It doesn't look as bad from a distance. A stunning silver glitter polish combined with zebra print has the potential to be an amazing manicure. I'll keep experimenting.
