Christmas Snakeskin

14 Dec

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!Christmas_snakeskin (11) WLcopy

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? :)
