Neon Snakeskin Gradient Nail Art

Hi all! I wasn't sure what to call this nail art, but it kind of reminds me of snakeskin, so I'm going with that. Today's manicure was inspired by this one from naildecor on Instagram. I was only able to get one good photo, because my skin was pretty dry after all the cleanup I had to do!

I started with a base of OPI Alpine Snow, and then made a gradient with Peonies & Park Ave from HB Beauty Bar. Once that was dry, I striped off a diamond pattern on my nails and sponged on random bits with ORLY Snowflake.

I seriously love this design. I like that it's somewhat messy, but it still looks so cool! And it wasn't as frustrating as tape manicures usually are, because I could afford to make a couple of mistakes.

Here are the colors I used.

What do you think of this manicure?


  1. This looks so good! Love the fun and bright colors you decided to use here too.

  2. Gorgeous! I definitely want to give it a go!
