  1. I can not find a nail salon that knows how to use the forms to create nails. Why is this such an oddity or a skill that isn't being utilized in salons

  2. I just can't get into this nail shape. Honestly they look like claws. You could seriously injure someone with these things. lol I like the shape on your right hand. You are very skilled though. The first time I had acrylic nails done, it was a disaster. Seriously, the woman should have paid me to experiment on my nails.

  3. please may you make a beginners pack video to show what beginners need or the necessary items to have for doing acrylics

  4. The nail tech that did my nails loved carbide files but he always hit the sides of my fingers and I'd bleed and he'd act like it didnt happen

  5. You are the reason why I stopped bitting my nails a year ago 2017, now it’s 2018 and I stopped hitting my nails, I just saw all the beautiful nails you did and shapes and I stopped hitting every time I watch your videos so I’m always like I’m stop bitting my nails because I want nails like her!
    And then I stopped, now my nails are long enough to polish, and Shape! ❤️❤️❤️😇😇😇
    But I will keep watching you just to make sure my nails are getting better, I also watch you for fun/ I love your vids.
    SO, THANK YOU SOOO MUCHHH! 😍😍❤️❤️❤️😍😍😍❤️😍❤️❤️😍😍

    Imma just like my own comment 🤷🏻‍♀️

  6. Ive always wanted nails like these and every time i went somewhere to get them done they did something else always disappointed ☹️ these are gorgeous!
