Smorgasbord Sundays: Favourite YouTubers

YouTube Swatch And LearnI love preparing nail-art tutorial blog posts for you because it’s creative, fun, and challenging.

I’ve been flirting with the idea of one day getting on YouTube and filming tutorials for you since sometimes it’s easier to see someone actually paint their nails on video instead of just relying on step-by-step photos.

These days, I’ve been having a lot of fun watching lacquer-loving YouTubers. In this Smorgasbord Sundays post, I’ll share with you just a few of my favourite ones.

Which YouTube channels do you watch? Do you have your own channel?

Here’s my quick shout-out to PlasmaSpeedo, DandyNails, and cutepolish!

You can click on the link or the images to head to their channels and see their videos.


PlasmaSpeedo Swatch And Learn YouTube

Not only is she funny, but she’s also down-to-earth and very humble. Even when she stresses that something isn’t a tutorial and that she’s just playing around with a design, I find that she comes out with something that really impresses me.

I also like how she’s really honest and quirky. She films videos in a way that’s personal – like she’s a friend speaking directly to you. That’s also the reason why I follow her channel. Homegirl’s real, yo! 😛


DandyNails Swatch And Learn YouTube

DandyNails is another one of my favourite nail YouTubers because from just watching a few minutes of any of her videos, her passion for polish shines through.

I also really love the nail designs she comes up with and hearing her thoughts on the new collections and colours she picks up. She reviews collections thoroughly and provides swatches.


cutepolish Swatch And Learn YouTube

cutepolish shares quick and simple nail-art tutorials, and I enjoy how she makes every design seem easily replicable. Her videos are also really short and to the point, which is what makes them easy to follow.

What are some YouTubers who you enjoy watching? Do you have your own YouTube channel? Please share – I’d love to check them out.

      Hey Andy!

      Oh yes, Brooke does so many candle reviews, and I like her videos especially about nail polish. Remember the Christmas ornament idea she had where you could customize the colour of the ornaments with nail polish? That was pure genius! 🙂

    Two of my favorites are Miss80Million and IndigoNova1. They both have great tutorials. I have a very small beauty and craft channel on you tube called Eurospend. Kat

      Hey Kathy!

      Cool – I’ll be sure to check those out. Thanks for the recommendations! 🙂 (I’ve only seen a few Miss80Million tutorials so far.)

    I love watching SimpleLittlePleasures. She has a giant passion for nailpolish and has a bunch of creative watermarbles.

    Also, my favorite youtuber of all time is KlairdelysArt. She is sooo creative and georgousssss!

      Hey Alyssa!

      You’ve reminded me that I was supposed to try water marbling some time ago, but somehow things got hectic and I didn’t get a chance to do it. I must write it down on my To Do List.

      I’ve never heard of KlairdelysArt – thanks for the suggestion. I may check her out!

      Hey Carmela!

      Thanks for your support! 🙂 If I ever do end up making YouTube tutorials, they’d be really short tutorials with simple designs. I like how cutepolish is able to execute brilliant designs with simple methods. It makes nail art more accessible and less intimidating.

    I watch a bunch of YouTube channels and I don’t usually keep track of names. Usually I just look for tips and stuff and if I find a video that I think might interest me I watch it. If you had a channel I would watch every video you make.

      Hey maddy!

      Awww…You just made me smile THIS BIG! 😀 You’re so awesome – I’m so thankful to have such supportive readers like you!

      What kind of YouTube videos would you prefer that I make? Tutorials or even videos talking about collections?

    I don’t follow a lot of nail art tutorials on youtube. I find them to be really slow and boring. I do love some good beauty youtubers though like JLovesMac1. She’s freaking hilarious. That woman needs her own comedy show. 90% of her videos are about randomness and the other 10% on the actual product(s) she’s reviewing. I love that she’s not afraid to make fun of herself.

      Hey Vivian!

      Haha, really? Even cutepolish’s tutorials? They’re so fast and simple. And her voice sounds so calm (that’s partially why I enjoy her videos, actually).

      I’ll check JLovesMac1 out. I could use a good laugh or dozen!

    Other than Robin Moses now and then, I look for specific things and it could be anyone’s.
    Acrylic paint – even though I use polish for stamping, I like the acrylics for types of shapes I’m not finding on the stamps. There was a Thai video that showed flower petals really nicely. Couldn’t understand a word, but I matched the result.
    There’s a French one I watched for dotting.
    And Robin for foils and acrylics.
    And there were three who talked about water marbling, but I don’t remember names. I’m really bad about that.

      Hey Debi!

      It’s cool how some people use acrylic paint instead of polish to do designs. Apparently the pigmentation’s better, it’s less expensive, and because the acrylic paint doesn’t dry as quickly as polish does, it’s easier to fix ‘mistakes’. One day I want to try using that instead. All my tutorials are with regular nail polish.

    I have only seen PlasmaSpeedo’s video that talks about the things nail polish addicts say. It was hilarious. Mostly because she sounded exactly like me, lol!! I have to check out her other videos now that I’ve read your description.
    I don’t look at many YouTube videos, but I really like mysimplelittlepleasures. She has great tutorials on water marbling and she does some nail art as well. It’s actually what led me to blogging because she also has a blog. Once I visited hers, I realized there was a whole world of nail polish lovers like me ;0).

      Hey Marisa!

      Haha, yeah, I could related to her video about things nail-polish addicts say. I was howling with laughter when I watched it!

      Wasn’t it an amazing feeling when you found out that there were nail-polish bloggers and YouTubers? 😀 I remember the first time I found out, it opened up soooo many windows and inspired me to become more creative and adventurous with my nails and nail art.

      Hey Amber!

      Hope you enjoy them as much as I do. For me, it’s not only about the designs, but it’s also that the people behind them seem to be nice, and that’s what motivates me to keep watching their channels. 🙂

      Hey Marta!

      What are you talking about? OF COURSE we need more fuel for our fire! It gives us a good excuse to use about why we are so addicted to polishes! 😉 (Not that we need one. We need millions…haha!)
