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 137 - Playoff Nails

With game 3 on tonight I wanted to do a nail design to show support for our boys. I find Vancouver has very fickle fans and after only two games lost it seems most of the people I talk to have already jumped off the band wagon.  I chose to put Luongo on there even though he is not playing tonight because he has been getting lots of hate lately and he is one of my favorite players.

This on is a bit of a combo design. I originally did the tips in blue acrylic but I decided last minute it was not the exact color I wanted so I painted a coat of Gelish on top. After the tips were done I painted a thin white line and a thick green line to match the socks. For the writing I painted the outline color first and then followed with the second color after it dried. Luongo and the Stanley Cup are waterslide decals I printed and cut out, they were done on clear paper so I wad to paint a a light base color so the detail popped. The Cup has silver instant artist and luongo has white gelish. to seal in the design I gave it a coat of clear gel. I am so happy with these nails and I hope they bring some luck tonight!


  1. I was going to flip my top if you painted that guy freehand! Although, you do have crazy mad skills so I guess I wouldn't be surprised. :)
