What is the difference between a Skid and a Slip?

In a skid the tail is outside of the turn. In a slip the tail is inside of the turn. If the tail is positioned inside or outside of a turn it means you are presenting some part of the side of the fuselage to the relative airflow and thus are creating more drag.
