  1. Hi, sorry if this question has probably been asked before but I'm wondering if after a week of applying gel polish, do your nails change color? Will the color stain your own nails or turn them yellow? Also, how many layers of gel polish is safe to use if I want a thick protectant coating to make my nails stronger so they don't break or chip easily?

  2. I do fifteen minutes soaking my nails in the acetone and I have to scrape them off. Why doesn't it just come right off? I buff beforehand. Could it be the brand? I'm using Gelish top, base and polish.

  3. I love the way polish bonds more closely to the nail, creating a look more like the color is natural. Gel always looks like a layer of lacquer to me. So visually there's a difference if you ask me. That said, I'm addicted to how long gel stays shiny and chip free.

  4. I recently had my first manicure, my neice took me for a girls day out. It was 3 of us and I was the last one to he seated and the 1st one done. It is day 3 and my nails are already peeling and were lumpy from the beginning. My neice on the other hand has all her gel polish nicely in place and she works retail. I am currently disabled (recovering from open heart surgery) and can barely do anything. My neice wanted me to get out and have a good time. Since going to get nails done I've only washed dishes once, and swept my house and mopped with my swiffer sweeper. Which took a few hours because I have to stop and take breaks. I was very disappointed to see that my nails were not lasting and made me consider not going again and just doing them at home. So this video was very helpful thank you.

  5. so like for acrylic nails I know you have to put like a fake nail on, but when you put gel on top of it, it's like jelly. I'm kinda confused with like the gel polish and like the jelly polish where you have to dip it in something then powder. idk I'm just asking, don't make fun of me cause I dont really get nail polish lol

  6. I've never had my nails done before…., but I think I want to try gel on some longer nails….I'm not really sure what to ask for or expect at a nail salon loll D:
    this video helps a bit, ty <3

  7. I once suffered from depression and an eating disorder, and when that happened I realized that the only way I could get through was by relying on Jesus. I hope these verses may give you some encouragement: Romans 10:13 "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Matthew 11:28 "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest." 2 Corinthians 11:9 "And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then I am strong." Matthew 17:20 "And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you." 1 Peter 5:6-7 "Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." Revelation 21:6,8 "And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely"…"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." I am not here to judge you. Matthew 7:1 says, "Judge not, that ye be not judged." If you are not religious, I wish you the best and I will be praying anyway. 🙂 Remember, if you ask Jesus to take that pain away, and believe that he will, it will happen! It did for me. If it seems like no loving God would allow someone go through what you're (or other people) are going through, it may be so that God can show you or others what He can do for us! (like taking depression away). This is proven in John 9:3 when people were questioning why a man was born blind. It says, "Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him." (I mean NO offence. I wish you the best, friend). You're worth enough for God to give His Son, and Jesus to give his life so that you can go to Heaven instead of Hell! I hope you please give him a chance.

  8. Does gel nail polish with the lamp make your nail super hard? My nail are very soft basically like a stiff piece of paper lol and I am wondering it gel polish would stay on my nails and make them hard?

  9. Hi Suzi! I am new to your channel. I've been binge watching your videos for several days now. I notice that you tend to do more videos on artificial nails than on natural nails. I have always had long, natural nails, and I have a question for you. Which product do you recommend for natural nails–nail polish or gel polish? When I go for a natural manicure, I like gel polish, but sometimes, the tech uses an efile to remove it. Unfortunately, this causes divets in my natural nails, and it looks funky until my nail grows out. Could you please do more videos on painting natural nails? I need help! Thanks for sharing your videos! Take care and God bless! Hugggggs!

  10. Ma'am wonderful tutorial..and your way of talking is sooo soft spoken totally love with your tutorial and wish to shape my nails like your nails it looks so pretty❤

  11. Suzie, thank you for the detailed explanation. You always have the most beautiful nails! Can you please tell me which little lamp you are using in this video? Or maybe another one that is small and portable? Thank you!

  12. I didn’t know, that it was Suzie’s natural long nail, i thought it was a tip!
    It looks perfect, i wish my nails we’re that long – But they always end up breaking.. 🙁 <3

  13. When I get my gel polish taken off, they use the drill on me. Burns like hell. ( I have very weak nails ) is there another way this can be done? It’s so painful. Most nail salons around me do that.
