    Thanks so much!! This is going to save me money in the long run!!! The girls at the nail salon kept telling me they couldn’t do this without doing SNS with tips or Gel acrylics..

    My top coat always sits down and then nail art sticks out, gets caught up on all sorts of different stuff… Not good. What is my problem?
    And what to use for gel nails, rubber top coat or what?

    Pretty & effective… But I just do it with the brush& get the same result. You just have to watch the amount of product on the brush.
    Love the channel though!! U have taught me many other things ❤

    I think the glitter works better with smaller glitter sparkles as well, I have one with larger glitter pieces and it has a bit of a bulkier appearance. Love the video though and I love watching all of your nail art vids! ❤️
