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 54 - Chinese New Year

Happy New Year!! to all my Chinese friends, clients and blog followers. I wish you all happiness and good fortune in 2012!

I am not going to lie when I found out it was the year of the dragon it made me very nervous, I had no idea how I was going to pull this one off. But I always love a challenge so I took to Google images and searched forever for some usable dragon pictures. After saving three to my iPhone for inspiration I knew I wanted to paint a red and yellow dragon wrapping around the nails but I wanted to paint in some of the red oval lanterns as well. In order to fit everything I alternated where I painted the dragons body from top to bottom. this entire design was painted Orly instant artist striping paints which are my favorite!!

After all that,  In the end I worried for nothing. I could not be happier with how these turned out and my client is beyond delighted with her nails.
