I love glitter and I always have a lot going on but I do have some nice simple stuff in there. I've been doing my own nails a little over a year now and I've gotten way better but as you can see in some of the pics I did have some not so hot sets lol.

I have one or two pics of my first sets and they are scary looking. Start taking pics, it's fun to look back on and take ideas from =)

Those look nice.   You need to shape them better though which can be tricky on yourself. There are all kinds of courses you can take that are just one or two days and they will teach you all sorts of tips and tricks. :)    


I also do my own nails but I am a certified tech. :)
