  • When you did your thumb, all I could think of was sponge toffee lol. My mum and I used to make sponge toffee when I was a kid, and the colour and clusters of bubbles on your thumb specifically definitely remind me of it. Mmmm. I always loved eating that stuff lol

  • It's so cool because the colors that you used, makes it look kind of like bubbly coffee in a black coffee mug! I absolutely love that effect! Did you use normal polish or gel polish? Also, do you have to have acrylic nails under? Or do you think I could do it on my natural nails? Thanks for all your help Suzie!!

  • Hi Suzie! Very educative video as always. But i have a question for you . I have super thin nails (like they don't break but tear) and every time nail tech put them under that lamp it hurts like hell. Is it becose they are so thin ? I really like your videos. You're doing absolutely amazing work. True professional. Wish you luck to your future work and enjoy some beautiful Christmas time 💖

  • Hey Suzie! I think the bubbles look like coral and could be used in a beach/ocean themed design. It would have been a nice addition to your stamped underwater nails! Love your videos! Take care :)

  • Hi Suzie! I love your videos so much I almost watch you every day, I'm planning on doing this snake design but with only nail polish will the snake color I choose work even if it isn't gel polish? I also don't have a nuking machine lol I don't know the name so will it ever dry?

  • Still looks good with only one color. My first go at this I only used one. You still get the effect, just a little more subtle.

  • I absolutely love watching your videos. You are an amazing teacher. Thank you for sharing Suzie. 😍 😍 😍 My question: Is there any way to thin out gel polishes after only 4 months of opening? Tried dipping the polish bottles in warm water 10 min prior to applying, but it doesn't seem to work. Should I be throwing them all away? Thank you.

  • Hi Suzie! If you were to use this technique with a top coat (as the bubble coat) would you be able to then use a chrome powder to create another depth?
