I am hoping that with this design, the nail techs see that not everything is what it seems. I want them to see that each item has several possibilities, so in doing that I have created a Steampunk-Recycled Floral Bouquet for your viewing pleasure.
I am hoping that this design allows you a second glance at any item you may want to throw away and see the endless possibilities it may create. Happy hunting!
The Steampunk-Recycled Floral Bouquet - not for the faint-hearted, designed for the fearlessly fabulous, yet feminine among us.
