30 Day Nail Challenge - Day 8 - Metallic

I totally skipped a day and did rainbow nails so I had to snap a pic of them for tomorrow and redo them to be metallic! So I did a really fast job/experiment on snakeskin nails. I painted on 2 coats of NYC "Big Money Frost" a metallic light green. Then I used a small piece of lace trim from my fabric stash to wrap around the tip of each finger. I held each one tightly against my nail and used a makeup sponge to dab on black lightly in some spots and darker in others to give it a kind of animal-in-the-wild feel. I suppose I could have done this later in the challenge for animal print day but I love animal print, so that day won't be much of a challenge.


  1. That's a really cool effect! I like it.

  2. Genius! The end result is beautiful, great effect :D

  3. Wow! Absolutely amazing, I love it- definitely attempting this at some point!! Xx
