Continuing with the 31 Day Challenge for 2018. We’ve hit Day 12’s Animal Print prompt. For this I chose to do a mani I named – Ballistic Animalistic 3D Snakeskin. To keep up with my goal of more 3D nails. [Explore entries on Instagram #31DC2018 ]
I’m so glad I thought ahead for this one, being under the weather, cos it took freakin’ aaages! I knew it would take a while, but holy cheeses. It’s cos I couldn’t find my structure gel (still unpacking some nail stuff I retrieved) so I used a thicker gel top coat and built it up in layers. Needless to say I have found said structure gel 2 days later! 🙈
So I wanted to put it over a multi-chrome from Dance Legend which I haven’t used in ages, as also was in a different location. How cool does it look under the gloss? I mattified after tamping a snakeskin looking print, and then intricately painted the gloss layer in the pattern. I guess it could’ve been a little neater in some parts, but meh.
I picked doing this idea ahead of time because I reckon snakes are cool. And it gave me chance to use this polish again.
And that wraps up my 31DC2018 Day 12: Animal Print – Ballistic Animalistic 3D Snakeskin mani.
