  1. merry christmas suzie.. do a christmas nail art video ?

  2. when i get my acrylic kit for xmas, i’m not going straight in with the nail forms. i’m using the trusty nail tip could you do a video with opposite hands with tips ?? xx

  3. suzie you are always great… thanks for the tips ..

  4. Great job Susie??? Beautiful like i knew it would be.

  5. I had to chuckle when you said you always offer your left hand to those who wish to look at your nails because I always do the exact same thing! I used to do my own acrylic nails when I was in cosmetology school back in the early 80s. My right hand has always caused me fits. Even now, I can barely polish my right hand or do even very simple nail art designs with stickers. My right hand always just sucks. Right now I have on a red glitter gel polish with little gold and silver nail stickers placed at the beginning of the free edge. My left hand is close to perfect, but my right hand is FAR from it. I was very careful with the gel polish, and it's VERY forgiving for polishing my right hand. But getting the stickers in the right place, on the right angle, is very difficult and so my right and left hands simply never really match. >sigh< Oh well. I try really hard.

    Thank you Kerri

  14. Damn, you're doing that so good! When I'm trying it it looks like a big drama XD

  15. Love LeChat polishes, but one thing I notice about them more than any other is they tend to transfer a lot, but that only matters if you're layering/using multiple colors

  16. Susie your amazing! I love this video thank you for the tips! Although I thought you would also be showing how you do the candy cane stripes nail art with your non dominant hand as well!

  24. I don't do nails, never have been interested in doing them but I watch ALL of these videos lol. Suzie's got the best personality and she's so talented it's just nice to watch even if it's not useful to me.

  25. Suzie, my nails have a very strong c curve, they're almost like little 'u' shapes. I tried to use a form and I ended up getting acrylic underneath all of my nails because the form wasn't sitting properly underneath my nail. Do you have any advice or tips I could use?

  42. question: ive always heard "back third" for the apex. urs seems to be closer to the middle.. is this because of the opposite hand thing, or does ot even matter as long as its in the back half somewhere.. from an aspiring tech. ❤ your vids suzie, ur so informative!

  43. I would like to volunteer myself to be a hand model for your videos.
