  1. Hey guys! We hope you enjoy this magical and fun nail tutorial ✨ As mentioned in the video, this nail design looks best on stiletto, almond, or oval shaped nails ??Juli’s gorgeous natural nails are currently shaped square, so she popped on some fake stiletto nails for this tutorial to show you guys the design! If you’re going to wear this design out in public with fake nails, you’ll definitely want to cut your natural nails short so you can’t see them beneath the fake ones. Juli didn’t cut her nails for the tutorial because she removed them right after filming ? Thanks for watching! Love you all! -Sandi ?

  2. Wow these are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  3. Fake nails.. ughh. So cheap. When I get my nails done I get the acrylic powder over those dollar store press on nails.

  4. If those fake nails come off easily without messing up the design and the nails can be re-stuck on the nail then I would do this design as beautiful as I possibly could so I can reuse the fake nails!:)????❤️????????

  5. Awesome!!! Where are my
    H?L? squad??

  10. This would have been useful for when i had to dress up as a mermaid for the production i was in!

  11. Can this be done with regular nail polish? All I have is regular nail polish since the gel polish is too expensive at my local stores.

  12. @cutepolish Im sorry but that not the way to glue fake nails…

  13. You should do some Bob Ross nails… A happy tree ?

  14. You know from a guy who Paints his Toes these designs are really easy for me to do. I mean its kinds difficult transferring the artwork from hands to feet but I have come around to figuring it out. I will probably be the only male who comments this but thanks for the video tutorials. I have learned a lot and am now painting my nails better then the Salons that I go to. Keep up the good work and thanks for Teaching this guy how to paint my nails/ and my wife's nails better then our Nail salon!

  16. I literally watched the video while biting my nails


  18. Do you have to cure gel polish because I have gel polish but not a cure thing
