Nail art has taken over Instagram and I love it. When you go to the explore page (before Instagram decided to change it) you see nail art and nail art how to videos. If you're not already following me on instagram my username is @modnails 

One of my most frequently asked questions is what apps I use to make my videos and what I use to record it.

I also get asked how I take my pictures and if you're curious read my previous post on how I take pictures for my instagram and blog.

Here is my set up to record:

I bought the two separate pieces for the tripod. The base can also be used for regular cameras and then the attachable piece which adjusts to fit any phone. Since I had the base already it was cheaper to buy the attachable piece for my phone.

Here are the amazon links I bought them from:
Before I got this base I would just place my phone on top of a Bath & Body works candle haha. It did the job but would sometimes fall over :( The really cool thing about the gorilla pod is you can place it anywhere since the legs are super bendable and adjustable. You can wrap it around a tree branch, and even place it on your car since the bottom legs are magnetic! It's amazing.

What apps I use to make my videos on my iPhone 5S:
  • iMovie to record, edit transitions, add music, and add photos 
  • Splice to speed up the video, then I save it, upload it on splice again to make it faster, and once I have it down to under 15 seconds, I save it and import it on iMovie
Remember, if you ever have any questions feel free to ask me! 


  1. This is very helpful! Thank you so much! <3

  2. Hee hee, I have the blue footed magnetic gorillapod and it's very useful for using my iPhone to record any thing. I also use iMovie but on my laptop and use that to speed up the footage. I think there might be a feature in the iPhone app version of iMovie to speed up footage but I'm not sure off the top of my head.

  3. You can speed up videos right in iMovie too! That's how I make mine :)

  4. Is there any apps for android phones?
