    Yay, videos! Thanks a lot for posting these, your videos are very informative and inspirational, as always. I have just subscribed to your new channel :)

    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?

    • kristina August 2, 2012 at 7:00 am

      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?
