Scope and content

This object curved metal sheath that is used for the protection of long fingernails. The base of the sheath is cylindrical and hollow so that is can be placed on fingertips. The sheath then curves slightly until it reaches the pointed tip. The top of the sheath is solid metal and rounded whereas the underside of the sheath is flat and partially open with a floral design in the metal. The edges of the sheath have been painted a light blue color. The floral design on the underside has the vines painted purple with blue flowers. The top rounded part of the sheath also has a slightly raised design of flowers which are painted a multitude of colors (orange, green, purple, blue, lime green). On the top of the cylindrical part where the finger goes there is a tiny metal frog attached.
