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 and I wasn’t sure if I would ever come back to it, but here I am many 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 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 content! I hope you enjoy my posts and appreciate your support!

Day 87 - Violets

No comments
For todays post I wanted to paint Violets, the flower of February. Even though I have not painted the previous months flowers I decided to do February because I really like violets. I love the color and shape of the flower, great for nail art. Sticking with the theme I decided to use this polish because it is the closest color I had to amethyst (Feb birthstone) and it also went nicely with the flowers.

 These flowers are super easy to paint, using a small square brush and purple craft paint I painted the petals, starting at the top and overlapping them working my way down. After that I outlined them and added in the purple and blue shading, once that dried I painted in some black lines coming from the center of the flower and finished it off with a yellow stone. I didn't really like just the floating flower so I added the little swirls, still not sure if it was the best choice but it looks alright.
