Rattle rattle hiss hiss...

Today I have some rattlin nails to show you! I did some pretty awesome peeling snakeskin nails if I do say so myself.

I started with 2 coats of Orly's Rock-It (swatch at the end). Then I took Nicole by OPI's Kendall on the Katwalk and just created random patterns on my nails with the bottle brush. KOTK is a really jelly blue with microglitter. Then I let that dry for probably 20 minutes. At this point it looked like a mess. Then I took a piece of tulle and wrapped it tightly around my nail. I wanted the tulle to make dents into KOTK.  I wanted the tulle to make dents because I wanted my nails to look as though part of the skin was peeling off (Gross I know lol) Then I sponged OPI's She's Golden on top of the tulle. She's Golden is a white polish with a strong gold shimmer. I think I achieved my peeling snakeskin nails!

My mom said that it looks like the snake skin is peeling and there is blood seeping through! I totally love that interpretation! :)

When I showed my family that night everyone loved them! Even the boys. My brother was like 'Woah I don't know what you were trying to do but it looks like a snake is shedding' I was pretty stoked that even he picked up on that!

Here is my swatch of Orly's Rock-It from the Mineral FX Collection.

This is a rapsberry-burgandy-magenta glassfleck with a slight golden duochrome. It really is gorgeous on its own. So shiny! You can see in my pictures there are reflections off the nail, I could not avoid it so I apologize! It has so much sparkle but is still completely smooth. I love this polish and it will be making more appearances :)
