i like your nails how did u do that??????

I actually went to a nail salon and got those done! Thanks for commenting! But I myself suck at doing nails so if you like it maybe you can screenshot it, bring it to a nail salon, show them, and ask them to copy the design!

Did not work at all

I'm really sorry, but if you're a beginner, you may not want to start off with something like this. Maybe you should try something more simple, such as a bracelet?
