Opals. I did these using a tutorial by Kelly of basecoat-topcoat, who is one of my all-time favorite nail artists. She has an ongoing series of stone-inspired nails that are so beautiful, unusual, and realistic (you’ve probably seen this one around, because people are always fucking stealing it). I really wanted to try to recreate one of them, and I’m very happy with how they came out, although I do think hers were better.
The earliest evidence of ancient dentistry we have is an amazingly detailed dental work on a mummy from ancient Egypt that archaeologists have dated to 2000 BCE. The work shows intricate gold work around the teeth. This mummy was found with two donor teeth that had holes drilled into them. Wires were strung through the holes and then around the neighboring teeth.
