In this video, I show you how to prep your nails before applying an acrylic system. When the nails are properly prepped, lifting will be minimized. In this video I’m using Mia Secret Dehydrate and Primer, but you can use your brand of choice.

    I do have a question do you file the nail first then glue the tip? & then use the dehydrator … or do you use the dehydrator then glue the nails on?.

    I added my tips before putting the dehydrator 😓 I’m still new at doing nails but I just applied the primer and I’m hoping that will be enough if not I learned for next time lol

    The eponychium and the cuticles are two different things . You cutting your eponychium can lead to hangnails and possible damage to the matrix . The cuticle is the dead tissue on the nail plate . If your going to educate the public, please know the difference and teach the truth .

    I hope people don’t try “pushing the cuticle down” and removing skin like you showed in the video! You’re opening yourself up infections. It was cringy to watch. 😣 please people DON’T this!

    Hi there friend!

    I am new to nail art & to be honest I don't understand what I am doing wrong

    Recently 2 of my best friends clients had some tips fallen (& it's not even been one week that I made them)


    Please help: it's because the quality tips, or quality glue? Or is it because I glue the tips in the middle of nail bed (even highter), of course not touching the cuticule!

    It's confusing, some YouTube videos shows the tips glued at the end of the natural nail & some in the middle of nail bed (even higher)

    Suggest me something, it's obvious that I AM DOING SOMETHING WRONG 😩😩😭
