Inspired by tiger stripes:

You will need : Yellow/golden nail enamel, black nail enamel, nail hardener , nail art striping tape..

Apply a good coat of yellow nail enamel as a base coat to your entire nail. I used golden enamel as yellow was a little hard to find in my city.

You will need nail art striping tape. This comes usually with French manicure kit. You can also use medical adhesive tape by cutting it to required shape and size.

Stick the tape in an exploding V position to form the stripes.

Apply the black nail enamel on top of the V shape design.

Now that the nail is dry, slowly start peeling the strips off.

It should look something like this once you’ve removed the tape.  Follow the same procedure to all the nails.

When you have completed all of your nails. The last thing to do is to add a top coat. Use a good nail hardener so that the nail art stays for a long time.

There you're good to go.. Wild tiger stripes..

Have a happy weekend.. Try this out and let me know how it goes :)
