I’m on a roll where posting is concerned so while I am I guess I’ll go with it. I’m moody so it could be in a few weeks my post-a-rama will slow down to a trickle rather than a flood. I want to talk about SL jewelry and prim nails today.

These right here are my favorite prim nails, mainly because they have the nice ring and little jewels on the nails themselves and because they are color change. With a click on each hand, I can change them to one of – I think – 7 colors and I paid less than 1K Linden for them at Love Soul.

Love Soul has become my favorite prim nail dealer. I say dealer because I am afraid I’ve become a little bit addicted. (As a note, all love soul nails are sized for a size 20 hand, there are signs around the store but just in case you miss them, make sure you have a size 20 hand and try the demo before you buy.)

However, I am frequently frustrated when wanting to wear a variety of things all at the same time. I didn’t buy Alamood’s gorgeous ring set for SLDailyDeals mainly because you can only have one attachment to the hand and rings will knock off said prim nails. Here’s a picture of the ring set which I snagged off of SlDailyDeals just to refresh the memory of anyone reading this.

Please note the credit for the pic goes to Alamood and Jori Watler not me and that this was a deal offered for one day only over the weekend just past. In any case, aren’t they pretty?

If these were available with prim nails I would have snagged them faster than a speeding bullet.

Here’s another set of nails I love from Love Soul.

I know I sound like a paid advertisement for this store but I am not, cross my heart. The nails I’m wearing were paid for by me because I liked them. However, I can’t resist mentioning that unless I am in a no script area OR I happen to be doing a pose that does not have or allow a relaxed hand, these do not “break”. I tried them with a variety of the poses I own (obviously not every pose on the market) and they looked fine. I wear them regularly with my ao and except as mentioned, they look perfect. They also come with tintable nail gloves to cover and smooth your skin nails so that your prim nails look the most realistic. I used the same tinting method I have used with my feet more or less to tint the gloves to match my skintone.

Now here’s some more wishing on my part. I love these slave bracelets by Earthstones. They attach to the hand, not the wrist, which is nice because you can still wear bracelets and bangles with them. However, you can’t wear prim nails.

I snapped a pic of the display while I was shopping the other night so forgive the less than fantastic pic. As you can see, they also come in lots and lots of color variations. (I wish they came in gold too.)

And to match, she makes these cute footlets. (Oh how I wish someone like Siddean Munro of Slink would get together with Abraxxa Anatine of Earthstones and make these for prim feets.)

They are darling even on the sad mesh feets we have, nonetheless.

There *are* other makers, mostly jewelers, who make prim nails – sometimes with jewelry. Mandala, for example, makes a gorgeous set with rings, bangles, and nails all in one. To me this is the right direction because a person can be fully kitted out for a night on the town or whatever with these sets.

Here’s another of my less than stellar pics of one of their displays. I have to say I love their ads.

Sadly I haven’t been able to get up the L to purchase their fatpack yet. I will though!

Another manufacturer is Caithlin Carter Designs. Here’s a pic of one of her vendors for jeweled prim nails.

I especially love the multi stone ring with this set, but again, alas, I find their price tag a bit hard to manage just at the moment. (*shakes fist at real life budgets*)

At any rate, I’d just like to encourage designers and makers to expand the idea of rings and prim nails. Bracelets, slave bracelets etc etc. And don’t forget jewelry for the prim foot too. Prims want love too, you know!

Here’s some pictures of me and fashiony stuff with credits after, mainly because my new header is featuring this same outfit so I wanted to give credit somewhere. Please note that my nails look natural 😀
