I quite wanted to try freehand cheetah print nails, but I decided to go a little further out of my comfort zone and try a snakeskin pattern (which was also a lot easier because I could use a stamp!) in some brownish colours.
Bundlemonster plate 225 has been used by many, many people to create a similar look, and I've always liked the looks of them. I started off with 2 coats of Nails Inc. Basil Street. Then stamped once with e.l.f. Chocolate, then again (making sure I didn't place it in the same place as the Chocolate) with Beauty UK Olympic Bronze.
I wasn't too sure how it would come out or what I'd think of it (in fact I started off only painting my left hand because I thought I may take it all off immediately) but I really love it! I like the effect of the two colours stamped with the same image- and it does actually look pretty snake-like :)

I'd never buy a (fake) snakeskin bag, but it's a fun look for my nails!
