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 101 - Ruffled Feathers

4 comments
It;s quite bizarre where I get my inspiration sometimes, today's post was inspired by some throw pillows I saw on pinterest. I just loved the print and color combo so much I had to put it on my nails. I attached a picture for you to see...

I like doing prints like this (especially animal prints) where my brush strokes to not have to be completely accurate where in fact the more random the better it just makes the design look more detailed. This one was really easy, if you like it definitely give it a shot. All I did was start at the top of the feather painting the almond like shape with the stem of the feather coming down with a slight curve. After that I took the striping paint and and with outward flicks I just let the brush go where it wanted not caring if the lines overlapped. For more definition I went in with my silver paint and added in some finer lines giving the feather a more ruffled look. To finish it off I added color to the tip of the feather and went over it in a high gloss top coat to make it really pop.
