    Wow, Kristin you are amazing. This video is so timely and helpful. Did you see Dr. Oz yesterday? OMG the germs you can pick up at nail salons. I have decided to do my own mani-pedi from now on. I probably won’t do all the fun stuff that you do…I might be too old for that but the basic manicure stuff was great.

    Hey Kristina, I just wanted to show you a pretty nice Groupon offer for The Body Shop since I noticed that you use a couple of their products. It is $10 for $20 http://www.groupon.com/deals/dc-md1-the-body-shop?sd=false&utm_campaign=UserReferral_dp&utm_medium=twitter&utm_source=uu34037797

    Thanks for this video, Kristina. I painted my nails last night after watching…they turned out so much better than usual. Not perfect yet, but close! :)

    Thanks for the video! Quick question, do you wash your hands again after putting on the cuticle oil?

      No, not right away. You need to let the oil soak into your skin first. I generally rub it into my cuticles so it absorbs faster, too.

    Thanks for this helpful video. I suck in mani&pedi but things might change from now on. Thanks to you!
    Is it really so that you don’t let the nail polish dry before you apply the top coat?
