    Thank you for all the great tips. And thank you for showing, by using your dominant hand (so many content creators always work on their non-dominant hand and it looks so easy – and makes me feel bad that I’m not as proficient).

    Your nails are so beautiful! I had a question, I was getting gel polish every 3 weeks for 4 months and felt like I wanted to let my nails "breath" naturally at my last appt.
    Thankfully I did, my strong nails that I had no issues growing are now so weak and will bend at any pressure I could cry. Is this common and just a sign that gel application is not for me?!

    This is the best video I’ve seen on how to prevent lifting. I also love how you emphasize being careful to avoid the skin because of allergies. It happens to lots of people. Thank you for this!!!

    Your natural nails are so pretty just the way they are. Many people get extensions so that their nails will look like yours look naturally 🙂 thanks for a very clear and thorough tutorial!

    I subscribed immediately after watching this video. You were clear and so thorough. I’m learning how to do my nails with gel x and extensions and this video is by far the most helpful I’ve found on YouTube. Thank you so much for this content. 🙏🌷

    Girl, you're a life saver. This is the best video I found on youtube on how to apply nail extensions! I want to take care of my natural nails and cuticles, and you show exactly how to take care of them. On top of that, you have your natural nails to prove that it works! Thank you so much for this video 🥰❤

    sorry but why do you need the flash cure lamp if you have the bigger uv lamp? i was just wondering. is it to reduce the amount you put your hand under the bigger lamp?

    Thank you for showing you can use press on's without having to cut your natural nails. My problem is, my nails have ridges and are twisting, curling and bending. B

    You know, you are one of the few people who be like, 'this is how slow it is'. I started to do my own nails, and even after about 5 months of doing it, it still takes me about 3 hrs from start to finish. But on IG and Youtube, everyone seems to do it so fast, like everything takes 1 hr. I also have one question, and I hope you can help me: my free edge goes a bit downward. If I want a good fit at the cuticle, there will be space between the tip and my nail tip. Should I cut my nails short? They are a bit longer than your nails in this video.

    Can you please explain how is it possible that we do not need base when painting the "false" nails? Permanent colors always require a base, didn't they?

    Having a hard time! When applying the gel to your natural nail, does the gel have to be completely cured? No matter how long I cure the gel stays tacky. Not sure if this is the reason why mine don’t stay on for long.
