I have been looking through the gallery and came across a set of nails that had a skeleton leaf design. Can some direct me somewhere on a tutorial or someway of doing these?

all you have to do flower, is sculpt or apply clear tip - stick skeleton leaf on (cut to size) then apply clear acrylic over the top

no, when a leaf is new it has a coating of green flesh.
the skeleton is what takes nutrients through the leaf to keep it alive.
when the leaf rots, if it has the right conditions, just the green part will dissintegrate and leave the 'skeleton' in tact.
they are generally magnolia leaves but certain other types will work too, usually tougher fleshy leaves.

the resulting skeletons are then dyed or left natural.
