Color Club - Snakeskin

Here's a polish for when you don't quite want a gunmetal grey...




This color felt so at home on my nails it wasn't even funny. I was trying out Shellac so I hadn't had a chance to change my polish for a week. When I did, this was the first color I grabbed out of my untrides. Something about it just called to me, and when it was on... the world was right again.
Color
Gunmetal gray metallic with a hint of green and a little bit of gold. Like the name implies, there's a definite lizard-like quality to this polish.  I am once again reminded of Sigourney Weaver's nails in Alien: Resurrection. It's like an evil version of Chanel Kaleidoscope.

Application
Two coats over Qtica Nail Growth Stimulator and topped with Seche Vite. I did get Seche Vite shrinkage, particularly on my thumb. This polish also can look streaky if you're not careful.

Wear
I thought it was wearing just fine (for me) until the second night. I took a shower and the polish started falling apart.

Bottom Line
Regardless of wear issues, I adore this color. If you're looking for something that's elegant but bad-ass this polish would be perfect for your collection.
