Wow! These are beautiful. And thumbnails! Thank you. Selecting the proper nails can be so frustrating, even if they are actually labeled.

ScorpioMaurus also made the custom thumbs for my nail set. (thanks again, Scorpio )
custom thumbs are really sooo useful for nails...i'll redownload your sets now...

oh, i almost forgot...maybe you should mention, that people who already downloaded your older nail sets have to delete their Accessory.cache so that the thumbs will be shown in CAS...

Leriety I am the one who added the thumbs, The process is long and hard to explain here but I have made a picture tutorial for those who would like to learn. The pictures are numbered by the steps you have to take so 01 is the first thing you must do and so on.

I apologize for not answering sooner but I didn't know they were made into a new post. Don't forget when using this method on an item that was already in your game you must delete the accessory.cache file or the new thumbs will not show up. If it is your first time putting the item in your game that step is not needed to have the thumbs show up. I used SnowStorm's Tutorial to learn but found it difficult for a noob to modding like myself so I made mine to use along side hers which is found here:

PS Tio_r congrats on the over 17,000 DLs

It's always the littlest things that makes the difference between good looking and stunning

These are really pretty! I can see a few, however, that I probably wouldn't use (no negative reflection on them, it's just that I have a grungy, gothy sort of look to my main hood). Any chance that you could pop the corresponding numbers on your picture, so it's easier for us to sort through and choose which to keep?
