31 Day Challenge: Animal Print

snake skin pattern furious filer #31dc2016 neon green

Snake skin may not be the most original design but I've never done one before and today seemed like the perfect opportunity. I was super happy about this manicure until I showed it to my mother who said 'That's nice, I wish I could make such a pretty honeycomb pattern'. Honeycomb? Seriously, a bloody honeycomb?! I think we all know what I'm getting my mum for Christmas (Yes, I said the 'C' word).

I started with the vertical gradient using three Models Own polishes, Sarong Wrap*Turquoise Gloss* and Flip Flop*. I struggled a bit with the snake skin stamp because my nails are quite long now and the pattern was too small. See the crock/snake skin pattern on the left hand side? I stamped it on half of my nail and then picked it up again, turned the stamper around and applied it on the other half. It was a bit fiddly but I used a Clear Jelly Stamper* (reviewed HERE) to make sure I could see what I was doing and place the pattern exactly where I wanted it. I sealed my design with a layer of Glisten&Glow HK Girl top coat.
