The Snakeskin Effect

Snakeskin is recently the talk of the town. Nailtechs are embedding the real thing from shedded snake skin into nails to create that special effect. Though I consider myself quite adventurous when it comes to nails, I admit that I'm not quite liking the idea of having the dead cells of some living creature sandwiched in between my nails !
So, here it version of the snakeskin effect using ONLY GELS! Nothing is embedded inside the nail, not even nets. I've shared this fast and easy technique during "play day" with some of my educators recently. I'm wearing it now to see how well it is coping. I'm sure we will have plenty of new designs with this technique in time to come, so stay tuned :)
