  14. Lol, Robin! I really really really wanted this design on my nails but I didn’t have the tan color you started with. And it took me sooo long but I mixed some polishes and I find it hilarious how close I came to that color. Almost exact! Your nail art is so inspiring. This design is very elegant and beautiful! You inspire me!

  15. WOW! Your mom has wonderful taste! This design is such a classic, Robin!

  16. How do you mix the 2 nail polishes together? Can you ever use acrylic mixed in with polish?

  19. @robinmosesnailart hello robin!!, I love doing nail designs Iam 18 and Iam almost starting beauty school!! I hope to be as good as you and I love your art work , I have a question I kinda feel silly asking .. Are the the acrylic paints .. Like the ones you would use to paint on canvas or is it a special kind?

  20. i luv this

  21. This is the most gorgeous nail tutorial I have ever seen and I’ve watch SO MANY!

  23. Robin, you are a nail goddess. I have been following your designs here on YouTube, and I must say that you are a brilliant inspiration. I didn’t even know how to properly paint my nails a year ago, and now I am complimented. I have found a creative outlet that I never thought possible. I hope other girls and women know they can do this, too. It just takes practice! Inspiration is doing, so, please, Robin keep doing what you do best — inspire. And I just LOVE this design, by the way. :)

  24. @zylke she typically uses nail polish for the solid base color and acrylic paint for the design :)
