NotD: Sssnake Print

Hey, guys! So, if you read my last post you've already seen a preview of my nails. I liked them but felt that I could improve them. As we all know, this can lead to disaster. So, did it? Well, you'll just have to read and see. ^_~ I used 3 of the polishes I just won (also in my last post). First, here's my base color.

OPI Stranger Tides

OPI Stranger Tides is just that: strange. It's the oddest color nail polish I've ever seen. I'd place it somewhere between alien and zombie skin. Hahaha. I would describe it as a green hued grey. Weird, right? Not something I'd wear on it's own, but it works for nail art! Here's another pic. You can see a little more of the green in this one.

Then, I stamped using the snake skin print on one of my new Bundle Monster Plates, BM-215, and China Glaze Trendsetter.

Golden Python Snake Print Nails?

Now, I haven't matted anything in a while so...

As you can see, this kind of lightened the mani. That's when I thought I should add another color. Not only so it was more visible, but also to add more depth and maybe even make it look a little more realistic. I used Orly Nite Owl for just a little deeper color and some shimmer. Here's the final product.

Snake Skin Nails

Of course it's impossible to stamp the same pattern perfectly twice, but I didn't want to anyway. I wanted the colors to compliment each other. I like how it turned out. What do you think?

Thanks for reading! ^_^


  1. Looks awesome! I like it matte, but I think I like it before the matte better since it looks more like shiny snake skin! The colors are awesome together!

  2. Ooooh, pretty! I love the snake skin print and I really like it mattified! :)
