 The smaller crystal sizes are ideal for nail art, such as the 2088-10ss and 2088-12ss. The clear Crystal is especially popular, as it looks very similar to a diamond and the Crystal AB is another favorite, due to the array of yellow, pink and blue rainbow style sparkles. There are also many unique styles to choose from to create a truly personalized design.
