    I had a client that liked to have her whites way too close to the cuticle and completely straight. I hated it and actually started dreading doing her nails even though I really liked her. The last time I did her nails was a couple months ago now and I did try reaching out once because no one likes to lose clients but I didn't hear back (which hurts because we were also good friends) but I think she didn't like her nails because I just couldn't do the look she liked... They are so esthetically disturbing...I just couldn't

      Who is camera man to Susie?? I’ve always wondered that but could never find answer

        Is it me or did Suzie not give this lady what she wanted. Where’s the neon? Where’s the bright colours? The blue was more like grey on the nail and the black lines look like someone’s dribble paint on the nail... which is exactly what happened. If I paid over $100 and didn’t get what I wanted I’d be peeved.

                I'll be damned if you charged me $90+ for those nails. It didn't look like ANY of her pictures AND that design is ugly. Also you didn't listen to your client she said "I'd be fine with them all be different colors" and you suggested the same three she already had. The only thing you got right was see through colors. No thanks.

                      Ashlynn Marlo you cant tell what my “style” is from one video. Every time I get a fill I get something totally different. Different colours, shapes, patterns, designs, bright colours, dark colours, matte or shiny finish, even different lengths. So if you hate my style you’d hate pretty much every set of nails which I’m sure isn’t the case if you’re watching nail videos. Try being more open minded :)

                    This is nothing like the photos she showed you she showed you bright vibrant rainbow colors and you gave her dark colors with a weird design her face looks disappointed just so you know

                      Ms Gel Galore I actually really enjoyed these nails. Not all that we discussed gets included in the video. The main inspiration from the photos were the see through aspect, coffin shape, and multiple colours. Suzie knows what I like and I trust her to pick colours. Just so you know

That is ridiculous!!😤 I really truly cannot believe that is just for a fill. 😱😵I really don't know where you're at but New Mexico charges only $25. My nail salon only charges $5 more for gel polish. A whole brand new gel set will cost me only $45. Usually it cost more to do your hair. Even then I spend less than $100. What is so special about your product does it glow in the dark or is it just see through?? Don't get me wrong they are beautiful nails. I just would never be able to spend more than $80 on my nails. 👍

Just had my nails redone about two weeks ago and told the tech I wanted an accent nail, when she asked me what I wanted I told her surprise me but do it in a gold tone color, so she did a gradient glitter on my dark green ring fingers. I normally don't do glitter because it is hellish to remove but she seemed so happy to have a little artistic freedom that I decided it was well worth the hassle at the later date to remove it when the polish started to chip. Boooo! I'm kinda really hard on my nails. 😢
