Red Week: Red Snakeskin

These nails look pretty cool, but I don't think you can really tell that it is supposed to be snakeskin.  lol

I began this mani with one coat of Models Own Red Alert, and then applied 2 coats of China Glaze Ruby Pumps and one coat of China Glaze Ring in the Red for a little bit of a brighter red sparkle.  Then I applied a nail foil over the red mani to create the red snakeskin mani. The foil I purchased from Dollar Nail Art and is called Snakeskin.  Snakeskin has a clear base so it can be applied over a color.

Red isn't the first color that comes to mind when thinking of snakskin, but I think it turned out alright I think, even though it doesn't really look like snakeskin. lol

The Foil ate the topcoat badly, so I think I applied 1 coat of HK Girl, then 1 coat of Gelous, and then 2 more coats of HK Girl to even it out and it finally did.

And another angle:

I like this mani, and it certainly does catch the eye!
