I’ve spent many hours on Youtube listening to Suzie explain the mechanics behind nail art, but I think I got more satisfaction from watching her do it (because it works) than motivating myself to.

The selection they had at the nail parlour weren’t so attractive either, so I went on a hunt for designs I actually like.
