  1. Can someone answer a question for me, I have the bottle she uses for her Motomer and it pools at the top but it goes back in the bottle, when she dips her brush in when I watched in other videos she says not to dip more then once it will make it dirty, isn't she making it dirty by dipping her brush in and letting it go back in the bottle?

  26. I love how the man in the camera does not act like he does not know what suzi does. It's so refreshing, not like every boyfriend of beauty guru

  27. hi teach,your best work, Love it

  28. hi suzie, just curious if there is a website or place you would recommend where you can buy monomer and powder in bulk and it doesn't cost and arm and a leg?? I do my nails quite often and it seems like I'm constantly buying more

  29. You are truly amazing to watch! I'm in the dental lab business and also work with my hands, so it really interests me to watch you do your art! You are an amazing artist. I love the way you handle that brush and use the various special effects. You should start a school! This has become a very popular business, and my housemate gets her nails done. However hers doesn't look any different than mine. Nothing fancy, no special art, just the standard manicure that's been around for 100 years. But you, oh my goodness, can transform some of these salons. They should have you come in for a day and pay you what you are worth, a fortune!! Maybe you can come to Massachusetts and just walk into some of these special salons on Newbury Street in Boston. You could get a name for yourself here and really everyone would greatly benefit from your artistic knowledge! Keep up the good work! I'm inspired!!

  30. I can't help but wonder…… do you ever complete your right hand to match the left? lol.

  31. Your almost to a million subscribers ❤?

  35. what if instead you did a layer of acryllic then let it dry all the way and instead of using the dotting tool, use the super duty grinder and grind out some chunks in a patter of something. Then fill with colorful acryllic and clear cap? i think its called. lol just a suggestion. Love ur vids!

  37. I just started watching you because Jenna talked about you. I LOVE YOU! I'm obsessed with watching your videos you're funny and sweet and super smart. You've inspired me to stop biting my nails so I can recreate these looks!
