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 83 - Mermaid French

No comments
I love mermaids and I felt inspired after having a sleepover at my sister in laws house where I watched the little mermaid with my niece. I think the movie must have played all the way through at least three times while I was over. I have all sorts of little sequins and embelleshments in my nail art kit, but it was the opal hexagon glitter that made me do this design. I have always thought they would make good scales and perfect for the tail of a mermail.

for the design I started off by painting a chevron style french in this awesome teal green sparkle polish, while the polish was still wet I pressed the Hexagon Glitters into the polish, slightly overlapping them for a scale like apperance. This was super tideous but definitely worth it, In person they are so glittery, I was quite excited! To make the french look more like the tail of a mermail I painted the lip part where the tail meets the body, I did this in a matching teal color. To finish it off I wanted to add some 3D, the starfish were done using an acrylic mold and pink acrylic. I added the pink dots after to give it more detail
