  1. I'm so happy I found your channel. I miss having my nails done but I stopped going to salons because they're so rough and I'm still dealing with a fungal infection on one toe from years ago because of a salon (and it wasn't a cheap place either), you've inspired me to try to do my own. Buying stuff slowly and will study your videos even more.

  2. I actually never cared for the coffin shape until watching your videos. I finally tired out some press on's to see how I'd like wearing them before spending more money on having them done. I LOVE them!!
