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 132 - Sea Shells by the Sea Shore

I was doing some spring cleaning today and decided to go through my old nail art stuff, during my organizing I came across my crushed shells which I had not used in years. I think there was a time where I overused them and that's why they ended up in my drawer forgotten about. I find I go through phases when I get something new, I obsess over it for awhile then I get sick of it. But I'm glad I found them because they are quite cute.

Usually I would press the shells into wet acrylic when applying it to a client but since this design was just for the day I just pressed it into the polish. This actually turned out alright, I was worried the surface would be really rough but it wasn't too bad with two coats of top coat.  After I had applied the first coat of top coat I added the pearls and the shell I made out of acrylic with my 3D mold.
