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 95 - Dolphin Love

Every now and then I will use my blog for good, I am a huge animal lover and there are a few causes that are dear to my heart. I absolutely love dolphins!!! As a kid I love going to the Vancouver Aquarium to watch the dolphin show, As an adult I am now aware of the horrible things dolphins go through so people can enjoya few minutes of their adorable smiling faces and fancy tricks. First of all I would like to say if you have not watched the documentary The Cove please do!! It will change your life forever! Right now there is the horrible slaughtering of dolphins going on in Taiji Japan, the hunting season is coming to an end with over 700 dolphins killed this year. Ric O'Barry (one of my personal heroes!) is the man behind the movie, he has a great website www.savejapandolphins.org and I urge you to visit it, lots of great info! I also ask that you sign the petition not to buy a ticket to a dolphin show or swim with dolphins in captivity, here is the link http://www.thepetitionsite.com/5/stop-dolphin-captivity/ Everytime you you spend money on these activities you are personally funding the dolphin slaughter :(

as for the nail Art... because thats what you came for! I started off by painting a blue french without any concern for clean lines, keeping it lower in certain areas and higher in others. Once I kinda had the basic shape for the waves, I painted in the dolphins and added all the details. For the design, I wanted the dolphins to be jumping out of the ocean and swimming amongst the waves, to represent this I went in with my white and black striping paint and added in the details to the waves to show motion.

Polish: Avon Blue Escape


  1. I love the Avon Blue Escape Polish that you used!

    I'm sorry I have never seen the Cove those kind of Movies/Documentaries make me way to angry.
