Reptile Nails

For this one I was just playing around, but I ended up really liking the end result.

reptileCND Effects Jade Sparkle, my Lemoncakes franken, China Glaze Treehugger, CND Effects Gold Pearl

I started with3 coats of my Lemoncakes franken. Then I added part of the leopard print pattern from Konad plate m57. This was the first time I’ve tried using only part of a Konad pattern, but it was super easy. I just applied black polish in a thin strip down the side of the pattern, and tried to scrape it in a careful straight line.

Next I filled in the spots with Tree Hugger. It was at this point that it started to look reptilian to me, so I decided to just go with it.

reptile 3To play up the snake theme, I covered my whole nail in CND Effects Gold Pearl (which is totally not gold, it’s absolutely green).

reptile 4Lastly, I added CND Effects Jade Sparkle only on the middle stripe. I couldn’t seem to really capture that part in my pictures, though.
