Snake Skin Nails

Hello :)  I am usually not a big fan of animal print on my nails but this time is different.  I knew what kind of mani I was going to do, so I picked out these colors.  When I was done, I noticed it being sort of like a snake skin mani ..  Well, you be the judge :)

Started with a coat of Zoya Farah - a light khaki-beige creme, then sponged randomly on the nails with Zoya Song- a vibrant blue with blue metallic sparkles,  China Glaze Agro (bottle shown in pic #2) - a metallic olive green, Color Club Model Behavior (bottle shown in pic #1) - a bronze metallic shimmer = GORGEOUS, and lastly China Glaze Blonde Bombshell - a gold glitter.  I went back and sponged these colors on again to tone down the glitter, was hoping to achieve the 'glow from within' look.  I normally paint the polish on the sponge, this time I dipped a few drops on the back of a stamping plate then dapped.  Finally, stamped with Color Club Gold metallic using BM-315 plate.  Here are the pics with topcoat ...
What do you think?

Thank you for dropping by :)

Those are gorgeous. The sort of duo-tone effect of the green and the brown really does give a snake-esque feel. :D
