    i love this i saw it on instagram and on youtube I love it! I Love all of your videos! But i noticed that you did not have a intro and I loved that because no other nail tutorials on youtube did that! But thank you so much for making all of these amazing videos i have tried out many of the styles you have demonstrated! I have on the ombre nails right now using the same colors and I love it! Thank you again from taking time out of your day to make these videos!

    I miss your intros! I’ll admit they were a little long, but I still definitely like your tutorials better WITH them :)
    P.S. I think I’m gonna try this as a pedicure and use China glaze For Audrey, Essie Shine of the times, and OPI I eat Mainely Lobster :)

  • laura

    Love it! :) quick question: how do you get those glitters of your nails?? Its always such a struggle!
    love to hear your ideas.

    • Serena

      I’m not Jen :), but I did learn this technique from her :)
      1. Soak a cotton ball in nail polish remover
      2. Cut a tin foil piece big enough to fit around the nail that you are taking glitter off of
      3. Take the soaked cotton ball and place on your nail. Then press the tin foil piece on your nail and wrap it around your finger making sure it isn’t too loose.
      4. Leave the tin foil on your nail for a few minutes. Then push the foil down on your nail as you pull it and the cotton ball off. Most of the polish should be gone and any that is left will be easily removed with a q-tip or cotton pad.
      GOOD LUCK!

    Hi Jen! I love your posts–thanks to you I now curl my hair!

    Would you consider doing a video on nail care? Your nails always look great and I can’t decide what you do about your cuticles; mine are always a mess.

    Thanks for the great tips!
