Don't get too close! This mani bites!

Hi Readers!  I'm hauling out another foil today because I'm really loving the ones  I got in this haul.  This one is snakeskin.  It's a really cool foil because A it's not a metallic finish foil and B it's see through in spots so you can change the look of it layering over different colors of base color!  Seriously readers this foil has limitless possibilities!  I decided to layer it over China Glaze Pelican Gray because I wanted it to be somewhat realistic and hopefully there are pale bluish grey and black snakes out there--somewhere I hope--please let there be bluish grey and black snakes in real life!
While I do have an image plate very similar to this it's still awesome to not have to stamp and still get a stamped image!  Foils are so cool and easy like that! YOU MUST TRY THEM READERS!
Good news readers!  I searched the all mighty internet and THERE IS such a thing as a blue snake!  Actually there are several lol!  Thankfully I have never encountered one as I'm sure I would pass out. 
Here's a picture of the blue garter snake which I do think resembles my mani!


What do you think of this mani readers?  Is it your style or is it a little bit too "out there" for you?


Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!

  5. I love the foil and the fact you change make it more unique by picking a colour to go with it makes it even better

    1. I'm definitely going to try this over a few different colors and possibly even a gradient to see what it looks like
