Hey guys!! Everyone knows that snake skin nail art became big a few seasons ago but today I wanna give you two exciting ways of having this slithering design in the comfort of your own home. Plus!! It's completely vegan and super duper easy to achieve. There will be two parts, this week is the kitchen edition where the pattern will be from your kitchen... Obviously... So what are we waiting for? Let's get this Mani Monday tutorial started!
1. Start off with a base coat and paint all your nails an opaque green apple~ish shade.
Try to look for a lighter pastel green if possible. This will serve as our base color.
2. Separate a sheet of paper towel.
If you use a thick paper towel, it will absorb the moisture more and we will not achieve our print.
3. Apply a few coats of dark green polish on the paper towel
Apply 2-3 coats of polish to the embossed part of the paper towel.
4. Stick the "polished" part of the paper towel to your finger.
Make sure that your whole nail bed is covered then press it with your finger so that the pattern would stick.
5. Apply polish on top of the paper towel.
This technique will intensify the color of the scales and make it easier to peel off the paper towel. You can repeat the stamping process until you're happy with the color, but make sure that it is completely dry before you do it again. Remember, nail polish melts nail polish so if you stamp on wet polish, you just might smudge off your previous pattern.
6. Use a top coat to protect your nail art design from chipping away.
And that's it!! I hope you enjoyed this very easy snake skin inspired nail art. It's very easy to do, you don't have to be super creative to achieve the pattern and you don't have to make a lot of time just to do this in a short time of eight to ten minutes (including drying time), all your nails are slithering. In case you try them, please post pictures on my Facebook, my Twitter, send a link on the comments below or even on Instagram, my username is Iambabypanda also.
