    Would it be possible to paint and design the tip on a practice hand and then apply it using the gel x and cure it? I’m not very good at painting my own nails so it would be easier for me to do it all before applying the tip. I’m just not sure it would be able to cure with that many layers of gel and designs

    Your videos are long & boring. I don't know how you have all these subscribers. There are quite a few gel x videos that are quick and informative on you tube that are way better than yours.

    I cringed when all the gel flooded the cuticles XD because just like you I prefer perfect smooth transition to natural nails 😊

  • DJas118
    DJas118 14 days ago

    I was wondering if you could help me. I love using fake nails, such as from brand Kiss Nails. The last time I used them, when my thumbnails grew back they were crinkled! It’s taking them so long to grow out the dented part of my nail. It’s just so weird. What did I do wrong? Did I choose too small a nail in the set? Did that squeeze my nail and cause the crinkling to happen?

      Oh dear, I'm not sure what happened . If you are concerned, you might want to see a doctor to get a proper diagnosis.

    Are the tips strong. Regular press on nails that long are not so just curious. I know these are not press on.

    We had a dremel at nail school because they said the students kept dropping the nail drill. Eventually they replaced with a normal nail drill lol that's crazy for a school to do that.

    Do you use Normal nail polish when using this kit or do you have to use gel?

    • Nail Career Education
      Nail Career Education  26 days ago

      Gel polish is applied on top of the tip, yes you could also use Nail polish on top of the tip for a finished look

    GREAT VIDEO. Inspired me to find a certified person to do my nails using this technique :) Also had to follow you were very detailed and honest.


    hi suzie
    I have only been watching your video's for the past 7 days, but absolutely love the way you do nails, I have learned so much and im no nail tech, after watching you im inspired to do my own nails.I love your personality and your theme music. god bless

    I would love to try this system, but I am concerned my nails have become very thin and brittle. Is this system easy to remove, I just don't want to damage my nails more.

    These are still considered tips? Not acrylics? Wondering why

  • Menoetia
    Menoetia Month ago +1

    just a tip: "aprés" is pronounced as "ah-prey," not "ah-pree". ;) Makes sense that it's named "after gel" though.

  • jamee Gasson
    jamee Gasson Month ago

    So I saw that you applied right into gel polish. But is this usable with colored acrylic and able to be drilled smooth or is the nail itself acting as the enhancement as the acrylic?

    • Amélie
      Amélie Month ago

      The nail tip itself is the extension. It takes away the need to apply and shape acrylic or gel

    I look at the price: 😰😶😢
    Me again: might as well buy the glue on nails from Walgreens

    • Emerald
      Emerald 10 days ago

      Jeanny Villalona check out some of the dupe videos! I bought everything I needed (minus the items I had already) for $30 on Amazon. I bought dehydrator, primer, two types of clear builder gel (one to adhere my nail and fake nail together and one to use on top of the fake nail for strength since I tend to be rough with my nails). You might have some of the items already like a file, uv lamp, fake nails, etc. Hopefully this helps!! Good luck!

    Hi Suzie, First off have to say I love watching your channel! I have learned a lot from you. I will be moving to B.C. next spring and hope to drop by your salon, and take a work shop with you.
    As for the Apres DIY kit, I love it. I have done a few sets on myself now and will continue to use this product. I used to be a nail tech back in the 80s and 90s, but have not sculpted since then. I'm more into gel now and just diy.
    Using the Apres products, its easier to have all tips sized and roughed up and ready to go before I prep my nails. I do one hand at a time. When putting the extend gel on the tip I do not cover the length of my nail. What I do is apply enough at the cuticle area for my nail, then I apply the top at cuticle and roll it down my nai eliminating any bubbles. This way I do not have gel squishing out the sides. The only place excess gel goes is at nail top area which is easy to brush off and no gel touching the skin. I will say I do not use the little lamp that comes with the kit. It's hard to use when doing them on yourself. I use my big led lamp. This way I can hold my finger in front of the lamp for a few seconds and then let go and nuke (cure) the rest of the time, no muss no fuss.
    Thanks for letting me go on about Apres but I love love love this product and will forever use.

    Hey Susie, I want to know if you've heard of a company called xtenz there nail application is similar to this one and they're not as pricey but I haven't seen anybody but one person try them out on TheXvid and I was wondering if you could do a demo and give what your thoughts are on I believe they are from England but not 100% positivethe young lady in the video who's doing somebody else's nails with them had an accent and it sounded English or could be great Britain.
