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 133 - Dried Flowers

1 comment
I mentioned yesterday that I was cleaning my old nail art supplies and came across some old favorites that I have not used in years, this is one of them. I loved the dried flowers when they came out and when I came across them I knew they would make an adorable spring design.

Usually I would do the dried flowers with a french or fade, but today I decided to do an all over color with some glitter pressed into the tips. I chose a color that matched the flowers to help them blend into the nails rather than have them floating. The flowers can be a little bit tricky, they are very fragile and the petals easily fall off. I find the best way to apply them is start by pressing them into either wet polish or acrylic, then I take a piece of plastic wrap and use it to press the flowers into the nail, this seals the flower into the design without any loose pieces sticking up.
