OPI Color So Hot It Berns & Zebra Stripes

Hope you all are having a wonderful Friday . Again today it is so freaking hot. I really am going to die in this weather . It's supposed 104 degrees today ...... come on now /:  It was even hotter when I did this particular mani. So I thought to myself what can I do for a good summer mani . Then it came to me when I was looking at my untrieds. There it was OPI Color So It Berns . It was perfect for the weather that we are currently experiencing. So since it's my first time using this color , I'll tell you a little bit about it . It's a fire engine red polish that glides on so smoothly . It's opaque in one coat but of course I opted for two coats . I just love this color and it just screams SUMMER! Well since I don't like having just plain nails I had to do something to it . I was afraid of ruining the color so I just made my middle fingers the accent nails. Since I've been feeling zebra stripes lately you know that's what I ran to. I used China Glaze White on White to make a strip in the middle of the nail, grabbed a red striper from Artclub and made some zebra stripes, grabbed a silver striper from Artclub and highlighted some of the stripes , and then lined off either side with black acrylic paint. Finito ! Enjoy !

PS  ; I'm making the snakeskin tutorial today , so be looking for that soon :D
