Cakey Zebra Print

Hi lovelies! Heck, I don’t know about you guys but I could get used to having at least 1 public holiday a week. But now that I’m used to it, it’s almost over. Tomorrow is one more public holiday and then next week Wednesday is the Presidential Election day in South Africa (GO VOTE DAMMIT!) which has been declared a public holiday. But after that our next public holiday is only in June again! *horror scream* How am I suppose to survive?? I’m a fragile minded person people! FRAGILE! *sobs*

 But you didn’t come here to hear me moan now did you? Onto le nails!

About a month or more ago I had a chat with some ladies about what colors would go well with China Glaze Foie Gras as I was swatching it and didn’t want it to go to waste because let’s be honest! I do not wear this specific color a whole lot and the name kinda gives me the creeps! So after a few suggestions, Heather from acidicice said she saw a show on TV that used colours similar to China Glaze Foie Gras and China Glaze For Audrey to make a zebra print cake so hence, this mani was born. 

I started by laying down 2 coats of China Glaze Foie Gras as my base. Then using my thin nail art brush (or actually my trusty liquid eyeliner brush) and China Glaze For Audrey, I made a random V shapes and lines to create a zebra pattern.

These colors went gorgeously together and I absolutely loved the end result! It’s actually one of those mani’s that I would redo and just wear randomly. But now I’m dying to wear China Glaze Foie Gras with a bright orange also. Who knew I would like doing art with this weird little goose liver pate named polish??

Lots of mad love...



  1. Loved this mani! This colour combo is awesome. Can't wait to see it with orange!

  2. Sho! maar dis mooi! So so pretty *me likes :D

  3. Kim K made me LOL!!!!!!

    You know how much I love these. Hard! I love it hard!!! Your zebra is pretty damn awesome bok. LOVE!

  4. It would go awesome with neon orange or pink I think! Also wish my freehand zebra could look this kwaai because yours is perfection. Mine don't look random or V shaped... Or any shape for that matter lmao
