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 96 - Spring Color Blocking

No comments
I've been totally bummed about the weather last couple weeks its just been so cold and wet and I am so ready for spring! So for today's post I decided to do a simple fun design with some spring colors in hopes to bring me out of this funk that I am in. I was in no mood today to go super crazy on the design.

Color blocking is super easy and I think it looks awesome on nails. All you do is choose a color for the base and a selection of contrasting colors, I went with this soft purple from the Electropop collection. Once the base is applied and completely dry you place thin strips of tape onto the nail, I wanted the blocks to all be different so I crisscrossed the tape randomly over each nail. The next step is to paint in the exposed areas of the nail with the previously chosen colors, I went with four instant artist paints in Dark Purple, Hot Blue, Rose and Grape. I am pretty happy with how these turned out, they almost looks like stained glass. The only thing I would change is when I applied the tape I did not make sure that there were no air bubbles in the tape which resulted in lines that are not a crisp as I had hoped.
