Snakeskin Nail Art tips and tricks

Snakeskin Nail Art tips and tricks

Forget crackle nail polishes, this autumn/winter it’s all about snakeskin effect in nail art.

Snake Skin nail art designThe look you should be trying to achieve is super subtle but it can be done especially well if you work with two colors which are quite similar to each other. Like grey, silver & brown etc.

If you’re ready to brave this look the DIY way you’ll need a couple of pieces of mesh – one with slighter larger holes than the other. Then you should have a couple of make-up sponges to hand along with three shades of nail polish.

Begin with a neutral base coat like Essie’s Jazz, then, once dry, wrap your nail in the mesh. Sponge on the lighter colour nail polish then wait for it to dry. A silver colour can really add some depth so try Leighton Denny’s Diamond Diva.

After this repeat the the process using the smaller mesh with the darker color polish (OPI’s You don’t know jacques is a goodie)and finish with a topcoat.
