Kat Prints-Tombstone Swatch Rings

Turn your nail polish collection into a graveyard with these swatch rings. They are the perfect way to swatch your polishes and show off your collection! Each pack comes with two hand-assembled white rings of each design. 

The designs include a cross tombstone, a skull tombstone, a pentagram tombstone, a tombstone with the alchemy symbol of death, and the classic RIP tombstone every Halloween fan knows and loves. 

The rings fit most standard size bottles such as Color Club, Holo Taco, ILNP, LynBDesigns, etc. However, they can be expanded or shrunken to fit bottles such as those of OPI or Enchanted Polish. Just use careful application of heat from a blow dryer or other controllable heat source on the ring prongs and mold it to the shape of the brush cap. PLA can become soft if left under direct sunlight for long periods of time, so you do not need much heat to mold your rings. Please exercise extreme caution while using heat.
