Nail Art #39- Snakey Snakey


So I decided to dig back into my stash of Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail polish strips to create this look. The one I used is named Hisss-terical.


Here’s how I completed the look-

  • I began by trying to push back my cuticles and shape my nails with a file.
  • I then opened up the packages and figured out which size strip would work best for each finger.
  • Once I had all my sizes I started out by doing my left pinky finger first by placing the strip onto my nail as close to the cuticle as possible.
  • I then used the buffer (included in the set) to smooth out any wrinkles or creases.
  • Once I liked how they were put on I used the nail file (also included in the set) to file off any of the strip left hanging off the tips of my nails.
  • I then continued to move along to each finger following the above steps.
  • Once they were all covered and filed down I used a speed dry top coat by Sally Hansen. I find this helps with making the strips last a little longer.

Then you have your finished look!




I have become quite fond of the Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail polish strips. I find them easy to use and they tend to last me about a week, as long as I leave them on for that long! I do still have a few extra strips left over that I might try to use as an accent nail. I also named this look Snakey Snakey because of the news guy (I think he was a meteorologist but I am not sure where he was from)  that kept saying “Snakey Snakey!” when there was a giant snake on the loose in some big city. I can’t remember all of the details except him incessantly saying “Snakey Snakey!” So to the dude whose name I can’t remember this nail art look is for you!

Do you remember the guy I’m talking about? I’m pretty sure he ended up being an internet sensation. If you do let me know in the comments!
