SnakeSkin Nail Tutorial

Hey ladies . Hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday .  I'm enjoying mine . Well today I've finally come to you with the snake skin nail tutorial . Like I said when  I posted this nail art you could go watch the original tutorial on this design . Well here's the tutorial ! (: The pictures are crappy and I need to figure out a better way to do tutorials but I just hope you enjoy and get what it is that you need to do .

xo ; Toyomi .

 I used OPI San Tan Tonio , brown acrylic paint , black arylic paint .

You will need a piece of paper , one larger meshed fabric and one small sized meshed fabric .
Apply two coats of your base polish .
Put some of your brown paint on a paper and dip your sponge in it .
Dab most of the paint off onto your paper so the color isn't so bold .
Apply your larger mesh fabric on your nail .
Sponge the color all over the nail .
This is what you should get . You can stop here if you want .
Now repeat the same thing with the black paint .
Dab off some of the color .
Apply the smaller mesh fabric .
Dab the color on .
This is your finish product . You can top coat or make it matte .

Awesome! And much easier than trying to put real snake skin on your nails XD I'll have to find some mesh fabric next time I'm at a fabric or craft store :)

Ahh! that is SO cool. I am super non-creative when it comes to nail patterns, but you have certainly inspired me to want to play with textures. Great tutorial!
