I hope that the trend of user-friendly nail enhancements and press on nails will continue! I have been really enjoying making press on nails with gel polish.

That is a hard question! I would guess over 100 at this point. My favorite gels from you are:My Crew, Cherry Party and Baby Blue! I use these all the time in my designs and the videos from my channel.
MG: What is your go-to-manicure? Describe it.
Definitely something using Madam Glam’s “My Crew” gel polish. And of course, some bling! This combo is a favorite for me and my friends and family. We love this on our toes too!
MG: Which celebrity would be your dream client? Why? Nicki Minaj! I would love to slay her nails. I have been a Nicki fan since forever. Rihanna would be cool too.
