Lacquer Saturday: Molted Manicures?

Something’s buzzing in the beauty world, or should we say slithering. The manicure technique that takes at least 2 1/2 hours and costs about $150-$300, has one main ingredient…molted snakeskin. Cutting each piece of skin custom to your nails gives it a textured look, a trend that’s been growing since the textured leggings and tights started popping up a few years ago.

I don’t know about you guys but the idea of wearing dead snakeskin on my nails kind of makes me cringe. It is somewhat organic/all natural I would imagine though, it’s been promised only naturally shed skin is being used and no snakes are being harmed in the process. This news comes two weeks after I was rocking snakeskin nails by Hardcore (which happened to be $5.99 from Duane Reade). They were also limited edition…excuse me while I go search for another set!
