Sometimes I surprise myself when I consider the places I go and things I use for this hobby... I mean, nail salon supplies? Really?
But you really do need to be willing to go anywhere and try anything if you want to excel and add some real uniqueness to the things you create.
I picked these things up cheap a while back and was waiting for a project to use them with. Basically, they're mirrored backs and coloured plastic. Due to the scale however, they can add a really nice natural look to your minis.
This fits the "gem" nicely.
