Crocodile Skin + 100 Followers!

Hello Everyone!

There are now 103 104 of you (potentially) reading this!  Thank you to everyone following and welcome to all the new followers.  I feel like I'm just getting started so I hope to show you a lot of neat stuff.

I don't have another giveaway planned just yet because the other one is still going on.  But, I'll see what I can do when it finishes! =)

Anyway, nails!

I saw a pair of sunglasses at work with crocodile skin print on the arms.  It looked pretty hot.  I, of course wondered how it would look on nails.  It was all in black and since I love me some black nails, (plus after pastel nails, I have an inherent knee-jerk reaction to go dark) I figured I'd give it a try.






I liked this but I didn't love it.  It was quite subtle in person and these definitely aren't going to be the nails that someone crosses the street to compliment you on but I was happy overall.

I did a quick google search to see what other kinds of crocodile nails existed and I couldn't find anything like this.  I found lots of people using a Barry M shatter that looked croc skin like and I found a few people had painted actual crocodiles on their nails.  With the popularity of croc skin items, I thought there would be more.

Anyway, what do you think?

Pass or fail?

'Til next time,
Amanda

  8. Looks great, I think. I'd notice them if you would come to my help desk ;) I'm not really surprised that there weren't any other manis like yours. It makes me remember those awesome snakeskin nails I have seen a while ago. The wonderful lady actually used her snake's "old" skin...

  11. These are really neat, did you just freehand with the matte top coat?

    1. Yup! Just dabbed a little top coat on a plate and freehanded the pattern with a nail art brush. It was pretty easy. I tried it first with Seche Vite Natural Matte Coat but it wasn't matte enough so I switched to the Gosh matte top coat.

      Thank you! =)
