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 145 - Water Color Mosaic

No comments
The look I was going for with this one was small tiles over the tips of the nail in a variety of blue tones. It kind of turned out like a kitchen back splash or bathroom tiles.

The Mosaic nails were pretty basic to do, a little time consuming but easy. All I did was paint three horizontal lines over the nail, In the first row I painted in the vertical lines to make tiny squares, I continued on the second then third line just painting the vertical lines between the ones above it so the squares alternated. for the color I just randomly started painting in the squares using six different blue striping paints. To give it that pretty opal color that blue tilesusually have, I very lightly painted a coat of glitter polish over the tips. To finish the design I added the silver sparkle and some crystals.

Polish: Kinetic Candy
