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 139 - Feathery French

No comments
This was my first attempt at inlaying feathers into a nail and to be honest there is a very good chance I will never do it again. I have seen tons of different designs out there with feathers and I have no idea how they do it so perfectly, I am not sure if I was doing it right or not but it seemed that the feather wanted to lay flat and had difficulties curving to the nail. In the end they turned out alright but the stress level was not worth it. If anyone ready this has any tips it would be greatly appreciated.

For the polish I did a fade using three different polishes over the tip applied with a cosmetic sponge, while the polish was still wet I pressed the feathers into the tips and cut off the over hanging pieces. I was not really happy with the inconsistent line of the french so I painted In a design of black flicks and some turquoise dots to match the feathers.

Polish: China Glaze Liquid Leather, Custom Kicks and OPI Gone Gonzo
