Small precious gems start to appear when nail laquer is dropped into water. The preciousness of pearls and gems remind us of 'natural' and 'valuable' charms used to adorn a woman's neck for the sake of womanliness. The synthetic quality of the lacquer pigments mimic, as well as transform, the concept of the pearl.
