You may tote a boa handbag or strut around in python pumps, but now your nails can get in on the reptile action.

Nail artist Terri Silacci has created a gel manicure using snakeskin.

The Monterey, California-based manicurist tells the "Today" show that these scaly digits were inspired by snakeskin her son brought home from his science class.

"One snake's trash is a toenail's treasure," says Silacci. "I find that the initial reaction from people is, that's weird, that's disgusting. And then they say, 'I want it. And I want it right away.'"

Style editor Bobbie Thomas was brave enough to try out the $150 to $300 nail art, in which individual pieces of snakeskin are cut to size, applied with a gel varnish and sealed using UV light. The process takes two-and-a-half hours, with manicures lasting up to three weeks and pedicures up to 12 weeks.

Would you pay $300 for a snakeskin manicure?
