Here's the article:
Yeah so you read right, Terri Silacci had the idea to put REAL SNAKESKIN on nails. I was mulling through the article and it says that a mani/pedi combo with this snakeskin can cost upwards of $550!!! Also, if you were getting your hands and feet done simultaneously the whole process would still take 2 hours! I think this is just pretty gross, although the skin is only taken from the snakes AFTER it sheds and no snakes are actually harmed I just think this is crazy and totally unnecessary (especially for the price!). The third picture gives you step by step directions on how the salons (there are only 4 doing this right now) compete the mani/pedi's. (1. Nails prepared. Cuticles cleaned and cut, 2. A base coat applied, 3.Naturally shed snakeskin is cut and fit to nails, then saturated with a coat of Bio Sculpture Clear, 4. The snakeskin is then applied over the base color, 5. Next, the natural snake pattern is outlined with a contrasting color, and some "scales" are highlighted with a third complementary hue, 6. To remove, visit your salon for the soak-off treatment, which takes 20 minutes or so. There is an additional fee to have this done though which could be up to $20)
My dad likes to think that now he is on the cutting edge of ANYTHING nails and knows more that me on the topic because he found this before I did haha. I think its cute he's getting involved.. he kind of reminds me of Jen of ThePolishAholic's dad who even lets her paint his nail(s) sometimes. My dad won't go that far but he's always researching the subject for me! Love it!
Okay so what do you think about this freaky fad? Hot or not?
