Nail File Friday’s: Easy Flower Nail Art

I’m so excited to share this weeks nail art tutorial as it’s something I had yet to try. The flower trend is ongoing especially this time of year, although it seemed a bit intimidating I gave it a go! And it turns out it’s easy and you can try the flower in your own favorite color, or as I did here, in pink. The trick to doing a flower – layers, layers! And a thin brush wouldn’t hurt either.

Quick Tip for Brushes: have a brush that’s too thick for nail art, simply dip in acetone to shape and trim the sides to make it thinner.

Nail File Friday’s: Instagram + New Tutorial

Are you on social media, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter? The idea of branching out on social media has been daunting for me to say the least. I’m a self proclaimed introvert and I am most happy keeping to myself. However, if you’re a YouTuber like myself, have a blog, a small business owner, have an online store or work from home and would like to promote your brand, there’s is without a doubt the need to be on social media. The ease of being on social media for marketing has worked so well for many people and the best part of it all, it’s free.

After much thought, I decided to join Instagram for my YouTube channel. You can follow me @simple_naildesigns. I’m excited and eager to learn more on the program – do we call it a program? Do we not?

If you’re on other social media outlets to promote yourself – company, let me know which one and how it’s working out for you.

Are you content with the results or are you having doubts about it? Are you on Instagram, any tips you can give me as I’ve just embarked on this new outlet.

Nail File Friday’s: Mini Mic For Filming On YouTube Using Phone

With keeping up with the theme of how I’m making videos on YouTube on a small non-existing  budget here’s another video of an unboxing of a mini microphone. As I also mentioned here where I show you affordable lighting options, whether you’ve already got your very own YouTube channel or  not, been thinking about starting one, you will need the right equipment.

I’ll show you in the video an unboxing and a quick trial by doing my very first voice over using the Pop Voice mini mic. It’s not only great for nail tutorials but also for videos of makeup tutorials to crafting, drawing, cooking, etc.
