Snakeskin manicure (tutorial)

Hi everyone!

My first post for 2014 is a video tutorial. Yay! I’ve made a snakeskin manicure way way back and thought it was about time for a re-make 😀SnakeskinWatch the tutorial here:  

  • Start with a white (completely dry) base;
  • Wrap the nail in a piece of lace;
  • Use a piece of a make-up sponge to sponge the silver polish on the nail. Keep in mind: less = best! If you add too much polish on the sponge your design will smear! We don’t want that 😉
  • Repeat the third step with the pink polish followed by the black polish;
  • Gently remove the lace from the nail to reveal the design;
  • Time to clean up! I use a small eye-liner brush and acetone.
  • Give the design some time to dry and ad a top coat;
  • Finish with cuticle oil and you’re ready to rock your snakeskin mani!

Products used:
Sally Hansen Miracle Nailgrowth (base coat)
Zoya Purity (white)
OPI Ate Berries at the Canaries (pink)
Essie No Place Like Chrome (silver)
China Glaze Liquid Leather (black)
Seche Vite (top coat)
– Make-up sponge (pieces)
– Lace
– Clean up brush
– Acetone
– OPI Avoplex cuticle oil to go.

What do you think of this mani? If you’re going to re-create this, I’d love to see yours!
