Slytherin Inspired Snakies

This week started with me crying over a celebrity death. I've never done that before, but hearing the news of David Bowie, the Goblin King who played a HUGE role in my childhood (seriously, I think I could quote about 80% of that movie right here, right now, it's not even on. I had to have watched it at LEAST once a week for many years when I was little), brought me to tears. I promptly purchased Blackstar and have been listening to it all week! If you don't have it, and are a fan of his work, pick it up!

Later, I wanted to do these snakeskin-ish nails with some cool pattern stickers I got from the Born Pretty Store. I had been thinking Slytherin all along, and was sad to see I tossed my size-too-small Snape shirt. Boooo.
And then the news of Alan Rickman came out.
Now I was super sad about my Slytherin inspired nails! What is this, the year written by George R.R. Martin?!? (a stolen, possibly too-soon joke.)

Anyhow, snakey looking nails still happened. I was watching a documentary on abandoned/stray dogs in LA while I was doing it. Needless to say, tears were shed while this nail art was happening. =(
Also... sinus infection. Ugh.


Zoya Ray and Zoya Yara make up the pretty greens, and a mattecoat by Warpaint Beauty, a (discontinued, I believe) brand by Hot Topic. The cool holo(hollow, haha!) nail sticks, I think, were intended to be used on their own. And they certainly are pretty so I could have done that... But SNAKE! Not that this truly resembles snake skin, but eh. The inspiration was there.
These stickers are super easy to use, and as long as you pull them off correctly, they made a nice design! Pulling them off from tip first seemed best, and while still wet.

Get these,and super many other things from The Born Pretty Store and use my code for 10% off! =D


Sarah's lost her King...
God has lost her voice...
So long, and thanks for all the fish!
