When your children hand you shedded snakeskin, why not give yourself a snakeskin manicure! That’s what happened to 40-year-old nail technician Terri Silacci who “was dying to figure out a way to match her nails with the tote.” And a new manicure craze was born, according to the NY Post. She told the paper, “It wasn’t until my kids brought [the shedded skin of a 4-foot python] home that I thought, ‘That’s it. I’m going to do it with real snakeskin.’”
Currently four salons in Manhattan offer the snakeskin manicure, “in which hand-cut swatches of snakeskin are applied to the nail bed and sealed between a coat of instant-drying Bio Sculpture Gel base color and a clear top layer.: It costs up to $550 for a mani/pedi combo of this kind—and hundreds of New York women have already paid that kind of cash to get it done.
Hmm, not sure this is one for Serenity!
