This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
I have made 25 recolors of Shadylady482's wonderful mesh using my own textures--they all have a pearly or metallic sheen. I hope you enjoy them!

Edit: ScorpioMaurus made some great custom thumbnails and was nice enough to send them to me, so I am replacing the zip with these versions. The pics will show up in CAS and in-game, but not Bodyshop.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Thanks for making so many great colors - and for labeling each one so it's easy to chose specific colors.

Yay, I was hoping somebody besides me would make some more colors. I love them, they're so pretty! I love how they look like they're actually shimmering.

where would it be located?

If two men are talking in the woods and there are no women around to hear it, is it still wrong? ~Just Kidding, Guys!~

Great colors Thank you for the recolors *woohoo* (wondering if there is a mod out there to 'get nails done' at the salon, and then be able to get whatever color you want) I have not started a salon in my game, so this might actually exist given all the creators out here.. I'll have to do a search tomorrow.. But this is just wonderful

If you dare to visit the world of the undead.. click my link, and steady yourself.... mmmm, blood, give me blood...

If you click that link, write me at [email protected] let me know so I don't sever you ;-)

I have added thumbnails to these for Lavsm for a preview please go here:

Special thanks to Snowstorm for the tutorial on adding custom Thumbnails.
Special thanks also to Vxen who led me to the tutorial.

Please note you should delete your Accessories.cache for the updated pics to show up in your game.
