Snake Nails Are The Edgy Fall 2023 Manicure Trend For Your Reputation Era

Taylor Swift is known for taking the snake and making it the symbol for her iconic album, “Reputation.” Originally a symbol used to mock her after her public beef with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, the starlet was able to use it for her benefit and reclaim it as her own. At the end of the day, the snake added an edge to her image, and it can do the same with your next manicure.

Snake nail art incorporates beautiful details and intricate looks that are perfect for anyone looking to embrace their “Reputation” era (or just wants a fun design). Plus, snake nails are shaping up to be one of the hottest new nail trends, with affluent stars like Emily Ratajkowsi rocking the reptilian set, as seen in an Instagram photo posted in August 2023.

Snakes can be added to your nails in a number of unique ways depending on your personal style and preference. While it seems like snake nails can be pretty straight to the point, with a great nail artist, they should be just as attention-grabbing as Swift’s album. To get things started, we found the perfect snake nails for Swifties everywhere.

Create a detached snake

If you’re looking to create a unique design for your snake nails, use four of your five fingers to create one long design. This looks stunning when you put your hands together, especially if your nail art is heavily detailed. With nail art like this, it’s probably best to go to a nail technician that has a specialty in nail art. 

Go for a chrome snake

Chrome looks amazing on its own, but it can take your nail set to the next level when incorporated into your snake nail design. Certain snakes have been known to have shiny scales, so the chrome powder adds a realistic touch that is sure to get attention.

Grab inspiration from snake skin

If you want to embrace the “Reputation” era without being too on the nose, another option is taking inspiration from snakeskin. Snakeskin is an en-vogue animal print that has appeared on bags, shoes, and clothes, so it makes sense that it would be great on your nails too. If you want to create a funky look, choose multiple colors for your manicure.

Keep it simple

If you’re in a pinch and you need a quick design before heading to a concert, skip the intricacies and keep it simple. A one-nail design can quickly be done at home or at a nail salon. For manicures like this, you can make the snake design the main feature or add a French tip or other designs.

Incorporate glitter into your design

Another way to add some sparkle to your snake nails is by adding glitter to the fine details. This creates a beautiful effect without overpowering the nail or the design. If you choose to use glitter, make sure it’s applied by someone who knows how to apply glitter to your nails like a pro to avoid it looking messy.
