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 91 - Leap Year Frogs

For the leap year I just had to paint these adorable red eyed tree fogs. When I think of the word Leap the first thing that pops into my head was frogs and these specific frogs are definitely the cutest. I find it amazing how many bright colors fit on such a tiny animal.

I started off with a green polish and then to give it more of a leafy backround look, I sponged a forest green acrylic paint over the nail using a makeup sponge with the pointed edge ripped off for texture. I then painted in the frogs going off some images I pulled up on google. I started bu using the colored paints to block in the the basic shapes, after that I added in the shading and highlights and outlined with the black paint. To finish of the design I added in some leaves to fill up the open spaces
