      you can’t do refills you would completely need to do a new set each time

    What kind of bit are u using on the cuticle??? Also what kind of bits would you recommend if you have sensitive cuticles?

  • Carina Christensen

    What kind of drill bit are you using to clean up the cuticls?

    Maybe next time instead of holding the form down with your finger use a clothes pin? Or a small rubber band?

  • Abigail Robbins

    Do they have different lengths as well as shape, because I love the coffin shape, but that length of nail would drive me insane

  • SilverTongue

    Isn't this basically press-ons but with gel not glue?

  • Kim Ames

    Are they sturdy? They seem like they would pop off the nailbed.

    Thank you so much for doing this video! This helped me troubleshoot some issues I was having with applying my own Gel-X nails.

    Why to buff the nails before playing gel polish?

    I love the way she giggles over the tiny little lamp 😂😂 so cute!

    Sorry it seems so impractical, waste of time

  • Tori S

    Would it be possible to paint and design the tip on a practice hand and then apply it using the gel x and cure it? I’m not very good at painting my own nails so it would be easier for me to do it all before applying the tip. I’m just not sure it would be able to cure with that many layers of gel and designs

  • Racheal Hart

    I just don't understand why they wouldn't scuff up the tip during the manufacturing

    Your videos are long & boring. I don't know how you have all these subscribers. There are quite a few gel x videos that are quick and informative on you tube that are way better than yours.

  • Superior Place

    I cringed when all the gel flooded the cuticles XD because just like you I prefer perfect smooth transition to natural nails 😊

  • DJas118

    I was wondering if you could help me. I love using fake nails, such as from brand Kiss Nails. The last time I used them, when my thumbnails grew back they were crinkled! It’s taking them so long to grow out the dented part of my nail. It’s just so weird. What did I do wrong? Did I choose too small a nail in the set? Did that squeeze my nail and cause the crinkling to happen?

      Oh dear, I'm not sure what happened . If you are concerned, you might want to see a doctor to get a proper diagnosis.

    Are the tips strong. Regular press on nails that long are not so just curious. I know these are not press on.

  • Jacquelyn

    We had a dremel at nail school because they said the students kept dropping the nail drill. Eventually they replaced with a normal nail drill lol that's crazy for a school to do that.

  • tiana

    I would love to see Jenna marbles try this

  • Larisa Pfleegor

    I have very wide Cuticles so I like tips that have wider ones so I don’t have gaps.

    Can someone tell me what bit she’s using on her cuticles?

    I just don't get into these tip over nails kits. That TINY lamp seems goofy, this system seems like building press on nails, just No.. sorry but ty for your videos!

  • Alyssa Lauren

    Do you use Normal nail polish when using this kit or do you have to use gel?

    • Nail Career Education
      Nail Career Education

      Gel polish is applied on top of the tip, yes you could also use Nail polish on top of the tip for a finished look

    Could some one tell me if i need dehydrator and primer from apres for these to work?? I have everything else apart from those?

  • ItsSoRefreshing

    Hey Suzie! What are the benefits/drawbacks of the tips being made of gel instead of plastic?

  • Jamekia Swepson
    Jamekia Swepson

    GREAT VIDEO. Inspired me to find a certified person to do my nails using this technique :) Also had to follow you were very detailed and honest.


    hi suzie I have only been watching your video's for the past 7 days, but absolutely love the way you do nails, I have learned so much and im no nail tech, after watching you im inspired to do my own nails.I love your personality and your theme music. god bless

    I would love to try this system, but I am concerned my nails have become very thin and brittle. Is this system easy to remove, I just don't want to damage my nails more.

  • Aliah Hernandez

    I feel like people just keep coming out with ways to do your nails the lazy way.

  • Humaira Ahmed
    Humaira Ahmed

    These are still considered tips? Not acrylics? Wondering why

  • Menoetia

    just a tip: "aprés" is pronounced as "ah-prey," not "ah-pree". ;) Makes sense that it's named "after gel" though.

  • Kari McDonald
    Kari McDonald

    Need that cuticle bit!

  • jamee Gasson
    jamee Gasson

    So I saw that you applied right into gel polish. But is this usable with colored acrylic and able to be drilled smooth or is the nail itself acting as the enhancement as the acrylic?

    • Amélie

      The nail tip itself is the extension. It takes away the need to apply and shape acrylic or gel

  • Laura Collins

    What do you do when you need a infill x

      Remove them and reapply

    Me: oh I wanna try these I look at the price: 😰😶😢 Me again: might as well buy the glue on nails from Walgreens

    • Emerald

      Jeanny Villalona check out some of the dupe videos! I bought everything I needed (minus the items I had already) for $30 on Amazon. I bought dehydrator, primer, two types of clear builder gel (one to adhere my nail and fake nail together and one to use on top of the fake nail for strength since I tend to be rough with my nails). You might have some of the items already like a file, uv lamp, fake nails, etc. Hopefully this helps!! Good luck!

  • TheGossipgirlxoxo69

    I think that every other method is easier..
