    Thanks, chris, nice video. Does anyone just use those 7 sided buffers available at the local drug store? I do and seems to work well for me.

      Lee, I used the seven sided buffers for the last few years until I was gifted some micro mesh. They work great too!

    Great video to remind me just how important glassy smooth nails are. Where do you buy those micromesh paper? I usually use old 2000 grit paper, but would like to get the 4000 etc. All I found is very modeling pricey pads on amazon.

    ive wanted to grow my nails for some time to learn classical. I also play the elctric guitar. But im having trouble growing my index finger. They always seem to get a groove in the middle of the nail. Can someone help me on what to do?
