    Thank you SOOOOOOOO much!!! I’ve been doing my own nails since I was 16/17 in the 80’s. I started with acrylics but my skin would itch, burn, & peel... in my late 30’s I started getting gels professionally until the products were available cheaply to the public. At almost 50, gel is doing the same thing!!! No one has explained that it’s called contact dermatitis!!!!
    You’re videos are the best! Your voice is sooooo soothing and calming. After a rough day, you’re videos are like taking anti anxiety meds!
    PS.... just until the past few years, I’ve used a Dremel! Shhhhhhh! I don’t recommend!

    I'd love to try it but I have extreme ski jump nails so tips like that don't work for me most of the time 😭

    Geez I just looked at the price. They charge too much. There are identical brands for much less. I spent 10 bucks on a box of tips by BTart I think is the name and used the base gel I had which was under 5 bucks on Wish. I also tried using poly gel which I bought for 4 bucks on Wish. My nails look professionally done. I'm stuck on this technique because I hate to sculpt

  • Shea LaRoux

    Clean the cuticle before you cure them. You used way to much but if you do you can clean the cuticle before you cure. Just hold the tip with your thumb

  • Shea LaRoux
    Shea LaRoux 9 days ago

    You're putting way way too much product in the well of the tip. All you need is like a wide drop. About 3 or 4x less than what you're using

    Hey Suzie, What is the efile bit you used to smooth the cuticle please

  • Veronica Munoz
    Veronica Munoz 12 days ago

    First time user and they came out great. However, my pinkies are super sore the next day, I'm not sure if I over filed my cuticles or maybe I chose too small of a nail size for them as they feel swollen and tight. Other nails look and feel good. Also, are air bubbles bad?? since I am new seems like all came out with air bubbles except last nail on this 1st set came out a lot better. Any advice on these two questions Suzie??

    When I was doing nails (acrylic) back in the early 90's, all we had were dremel tools to use, unless you wanted to file everything by hand. Then nail techs upgraded to dental drills. In my opinion it's the same concept. Using an abrasive material at a certain speed of rpms to either gently take the shine off the natural nail, or to smooth out your acrylics (in my case).

    Hello Ms.Suzie, I'm wondering if these lasted a while with out popping off?

  • Yuselin Martin

    Hello!!! May I just start by saying I've followed you for years now and I love your channel. I have a question I have an ibn gel brush resin can I apply this just before applying the tip with gel? It's hard for me to do my nails on my own trying to hold the nail tip and curing it with the lamp is it possible?

    I like the look of this system but I don't have the drill to file the inside of the nail tip. Any alternative?

    After watching many of these videos I wonder if Suzie rests her nails after each video. Can’t help feeling her nails and fingers would be thin and sore after so many applications and removals.

  • Dr Scolopmpeyo
    Dr Scolopmpeyo 27 days ago

    That’s a lot of work, I rather just buy my kiss fake nails and they have decent shapes now and are long lasting ...and I’d it comes off I have a whole box of coffin nails to replace it. I’ve gotten a lot of compliments and didn’t have to go get them done.

  • Anointed2Bling By Rein

    Definitely investing! I cannot sculpt!! I tried the polygel and failed. This looks much easier!

  • RidiculouslyCute Art by Gen

    I love all of your videos!! Ive been soaking them all in like a sponge. I do have a question, as someome with diabetes, my thumbnails and forefinger nails are always very brittle from the meds. What vitamin supplement or strength buildimg system (if there is one) that you would personally recommend so that I can rebuild the beds enough to put acrylic or gel hybrid nails on again?

    Hi Suzie! If you don't have a round tip or an electric nail file, use a straw! Tear off the end, just one layer, of a cardboard nail file. Apply double-sided tape or a drop of glue to the paper side, and wrap it around the end of a straw. Voila! You have a round nail file! Enjoy! 💖A

  • Carina Nordberg Rydén

    Hi! I watched your video and I´m an educated nailtechnician. I bought the nailkit and it´s really easy and fast to do BUT if you, like me, have spoonformed nail you have to use a bit more gel in the middle. I was nearly going crazy before I figured it out. I did get a lot bubbles and that was bothering me. Don´t want a greenie :). So I tried using more gel and it worked. Really a great system, you can get your nails done very quickly. Regards from Sweden :)

    Do you know any other brand that offers this type of gel nail extension but its not as expensive? This is $107 and that is a little pricey.

    I know they're not plastic, but I'm not sure if they're significantly different from clear press-ons attached with builder gel

    I always have a trouble with this kind of UV press on nails. I buff my nails and the press on nails and I do everything the way I should, but in the end they just fall off. I've ever tried mixing gel base with gel. But in the end it never works. Please give me advice! 😁

  • Dana Doozer
    Dana Doozer Month ago

    This kit is ridiculously priced! I do press on nails all the time, and I basically do a routine similar to this. I also can't stand that stupid little led light and I think a regular small lamp would do the same thing.

    My nail tech uses this system and because I get such big designs that take her a while when I arrive she has a card of my sizes so the tips are already prepped and ready to go for when I arrive so we can have lots of fun and focus on design work

    This nail kit is going to be my Christmas present to me. You make it look so easy to apply, and I can't wait to follow you and do it on my own. I never bought gel polish until I saw your videos. I have learned to fill in my extensions with builder gel, and done fiberglass nails watching your channel. But fiberglass isn't something I want to keep working with on my nails. I cannot wait to buy this kit!!
