I thought I would try an experiment with real snakeskin nail art Smiley From my pet snake's shed skin, I cut small pieces and put them over still-wet NYC polish, then added another coat of polish. Lastly, I ended up doing like three/four topcoats so the texture won't snag things!

Sorry my cuticles are a mess! Sad

Have the corners lifted? I always worry mine will lift and snag stuff. I really love the texture. Smiley

This looks really neat. Nail pattern boldness glitter food would probably help a lot with smoothing it out. I use it with chunky glitters, but I think it would work with this.
