Animalistic print has recently become more and more popular. Along with the zebra, tiger and leopard, the effect of a reptile on the nails began to be used in manicure. It can be obtained in various ways, including using glitter in bulk.
The design of the reptile on the nails involves placing a pattern resembling scales on the plates. It is performed by forming small zones – scales, separated by broken lines that change their width, expanding at the corners. Such scales, depending on the size of the nail, can have a size from 3-4 mm to 5.
Traditionally, such a manicure is performed in a blue–green colour scheme, but other options are also possible. To draw the scales, gold, silver, green, blue, and black colours are usually used. Usually, an ombre is used as a background, but monochrome backgrounds are also possible.
