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 141 - Deliciously Fruity Fade

No comments
 I had no choice but to paint on top of playoff nails so I wanted to do an embelleshed design where I could camoflage the thickness of the nail. I find when you have acrylic nails with a gel top gloss they can look like chicklets if you apply an additional layer of polish. I went with the fruits because they are super fun for Spring or even Summer! Today was a rainy miserable day and I needed a pick me up.

I love these polymer clay canes, it is just crazy how they are made, I saw a video on youtube and was blown away. But luckily they are easily availablealready made because I would not have the patience. This design is really easy when done with polish. Usually if I was commited to this design I would have done an acryli fade an inlayed them under clear, but since the blog post is just for the day I pressed them into polish. For the base color I painted the nails in this soft purple, I then created the fade using hot pink and opal glitter. I love all the colors on these nails, it is just what I needed on this rainy Spring day.
