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 125 - Chicken Or The Egg?

No comments
Today I painted my first official Easter design and I plan to be doing them for the rest of the week. I had the idea to paint the nails french  and make them look like a cracked egg with a chick peeking out. After I painted the ring finger I decided it would look weird to paint all the fingers the same so I did chicks and Easter eggs instead.

For this design I went with a white french on a shimmery base. I started by painting the chicks in yellow , once I had the basic shape I outlined them and drew in the details in black. I find when I am wanting finer lines it is easier to paint the designs outline first and then fill it in after, adjusting the lines as you go.  I did the same thing for the eggs each step started with the black, first I painted the shape of the egg and filled it in with blue, once that was dry I painted thick black stripes going across which I later filled in with either pink or yellow. I do not always paint my designs in this order but today it worked for me.
