Throw Back Thursday--Snakeskin

Hi Readers!  Welcome to Throwback Thursday!  Today I'm showcasing a mani I did in 2011 and one I'm quite proud of.  Even though I'm sort of afraid of them and they tend to creep me out, I find myself quite enamored with all things reptile!  As soon as I got my 2nd Bundle Monster set and saw the snakeskin image I new I had to try it!  
For this mani I used the gorgeous Essie Sew Psyched and then stamped with NYC Flat Iron Green using BM215.  To give it that shimmery reptile skin look I finished it off with a very thin coat of gLORIous which is topcoat of spectraflair pigment in clear.


Ssssssssssssssss
Man I loved this mani!  As I'm looking at these pictures now I'm feeling like I need to do another snakeskin mani again!


And just for some added kicks here's a picture of the snakeskin ring I made for my wonderful friend, Rachael
How do you feel about reptiles--are you okay with them or would you rather "wear" them on your nails and fingers????!

  3. I love snakeskin prints and the topcoat of spectraflair literally blows this thing out of the water. Ugh, and that ring...gorgeous!

  4. Thanks ladies! When I hauled this out of the throwback vault I kept saying to myself why have I worn this mani only once???? I really feel it bears a repeat! I wonder if I can come up with a different color combo for it????

  8. Hi Laurie :) I found your blog through Kayla Shevonne's and I'm so glad I have come across it! I was just wondering, how much would a ring like the one you are wearing in this post cost with postage and all to Malta (Europe)? Many thanks and keep up the good work!
