Welcome to Nailed Daily the blog where it all started! Back in 2011 I had this crazy idea of starting this nail art blog where I would complete 365 nail designs in one year. On Nov 30th 2012 I completed the challenge, it was a huge struggle to commit to but I am glad I did it because it pushed me so much further with my nail art. Shortly after completing my challenge I quit blogging I swore I would never blog again, but here I am back at it 5 years later with much more knowledge, way better photography skills and exciting new nail adventures to talk about. I hope to use this blog to inspire other professional nail techs, I want to share my experiences as an educator, nail competitor and salon owner. I will also share new nail designs and tutorials. I am excited for this new chapter of my blog, it wont be daily but I promise it will be good stuff! I hope you enjoy the content!

Day 52 - Aquarius

No comments
We are now in Aquarius, It is considered an air sign so I wanted to paint the nails in grey and blue shades. Not too sure what color air should be but I liked the color combo and thought it worked so I went with it. I want all the zodiac nails to match so I stuck with the black and white outline around the lettering and symbol. I must say I am sooo happy that the next nine signs have six or less letters, it was quite tricky squishing the word Aquarius over three fingers. As frustrating as it was I like the color contrast of the dull creamy gray base and the pop of bright silver.  This sign is the symbol of the water Carrier, in ancient Greek mythology Aquarius poured water from the heavens for days on end, which is quite suiting for our current situation, for those of you not in the Vancouver area the rain is just dumping down with no end in sight, but anyhow back to the nails... to represent the water carrier I painted a jug pouring large amounts of water over the thumb. I am really happy with this whole design, If I was an Aquarius I would definitely rock these.
