Move over, leopard-print manicure, there's a new animal-themed nail art look in town: the snakeskin. There's been lots of talk (in Parseltongue, of course) about these serpentine designs, but the problem is that the real snakeskin manicure is beyond pricey at $300. And if you're not into using animal products, this could also pose a big problem. Luckily there are plenty of affordable options available so that you can easily slither your way to awesome nails. To see more, just keep reading.

  • Daring decals: Rebel Nails' brown snake nails ($11) are not just something cool to look at, but since they're self-adhesive coverings, they're practically foolproof to use. For similar options, try
    Inque Nails, which provides four different, classic snake designs ($15 each) from which to choose.
  • Snake patterns not your thing?: Do the next best thing then, and try Color Club's Snakeskin ($6), a charcoal-based olive green with golden shimmer. You can even pair it with a crackle topcoat for a truly reptilian finish.
  • For a professional option: It will run you a little more than a DIY job, but you can always glissade your way to the salon and choose between one of Minx's four snakeskin patterns.
  • Mad for metallics: If you love metallics, might I suggest Nail Rock's metallic lizard ($10) nail wrap? There's even one available in pink metallic, too.
  • On a plate: Prefer to do your nail art with some assistance? It's Bundle Monster's manicure image plates accessories set kit ($22) to the rescue. Just use plate 215 to create your own unique snakelike pattern.
