You don’t associate snakes with Christmas? Seriously? Just kidding. I know, it really wasn’t that funny. I don’t know why I don’t do this snake skin-ish print more often. It’s so easy, yet so eye catching!
My middle finger got a little flubbed up, but the rest of them look pretty awesome. It’s hard to see, but I actually alternated the sponged colors. For instance, on my pinkie I sponged on green, then red “scales” while on my ring finger I sponged on red then green “scales.” I don’t know that it really makes a difference. The hardest thing about this mani is waiting for your base color and/or sponged on color to dry enough that you can stretch the lace over it without it sticking. I had a slight problem with that on my middle finger. That and I had a bit too much polish on my sponge so it bled under the lace. I love it regardless.
For this design I used Sally Hansen White On, Kleancolor Green Grass and Sinful Color GoGo Girl. You can check out the tutorial I did for this design over on Julep’s blog, here.
Do you think the Christmas snake works? It’s not exactly warm and cuddly, but still festive, right?
