  4. Suzie, there is a DIY for making some sort of "acrylic" with clear gel and cornflour… I'm a bit scared of using acrylic yet (new in this) and I was wondering…. would you try it and tell us how it worked????? PLEEEEAASSEEEE… Thank you!

  5. Great whats the size of the brush for 3D Acrylic Flower

  6. love your videos.
    music is loud and distracting against your soft voice so i find i miss a lot of what you are saying.
    would help if it was quiter or gone.

  7. Did u jus assume my gender

  8. I love your videos and the format and editing. How many cameras do you use? I appreciate the different shot angles and continuity of what your showing. So well done. ?

  9. Your videos are so relaxing I don't even do my nails.

  10. loving the giddy laugh. cameraman is romantic!

  11. My nails have been filed down to be paper thin after years of abuse so would it be useful to put a thin layer of acrylic JUST on my nail plate to help my nails grow and not break off?

  12. I watch Suzie's videos because I can never fall asleep on my own and her voice is like a lullaby for me. Works every night. She's my savior?

  13. you are a magic teacher Suzie I learn so much from your videos

  14. Can I make 3D acrylic art on natural nail with regular nail polish?

  15. Hello Suzie! I noticed that the gel coat is already shiny. Did you have to leave it sticky or do the petals stick enough even though the nail isn't buffed?
    Thank you!

  16. anyone else having backflashes to 1992? ok, seriously though, this is really pretty Suzie!

  17. I remember wanting to be a nail technician/artist when I was 16. I use to do my own nails back them. I very recently decided to do them again a couple days ago. I found your videos and am in love with the art all over again! I can't wait until all of my nail art accessories, brushes & everything come in the mail! Thanks for your expertise and inspiration. Blessing xoxo
