Creative musings in bright colors

Snake

This is, hands down, the most expensive mani (polish-wise) that I have ever done. The base colors (Viper and Nouveau Riche) are $20 each, and I have a butterLONDON ($15) as well as Revlon, Sinful Colors, Maybelline, City Color, and Julie G on here as well (although those are more affordable).

The main base is Nouveau Riche, which only took two coats. I am not looking forward to removing this polish, but WOW does it sparkle! As I mentioned before, it looks like the offspring of Zoya Faye and butterLONDON Scuppered. Its a complicated mix of glitter, with gold predominating but pink and maybe hints of purple and green mixed in. The accent nail and thumb have two easy coats of Viper, a dark dark green with a bright green sparkle scattered throughout. Love.

I then stamped using BM-215 to create the snakeskin pattern. I foresee using this pattern a lot with different colors…it was one of the reasons I wanted this stamping set so badly!

Finally, I hand-painted a snake face and tail on my accent nails. Unfortunately, I had to abandon my sister’s polish as I returned to my apartment for an evening (oh beach, how I miss thee), and so the snake and tail are made of a combination of golds that I own…namely Scuppered and Bold Gold.

Overall, I am really pleased with how this turned out! I had a hard time deciding what to do…initially I wanted to add snake eyes as the accent, but I thought it would just be creepy. I maintain that opinion!!
