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 150 - Blooming Flowers

No comments
I had a client come in today who wanted an assortment of flowers painted on her nails for mothers day. She even had specific flowers picked out, which was great not having to make the decisions.

I started with my green striping paint, painting upward strokes from the tip of the nail to make grass/stems for the background of my garden. The first flower I painted was the pansies, all I did for these was paint the basic shape of the flower using a dark purple paint, I then used a lighter purple and black for the highlight and shading, finishing it of with a little yellow in the middle. The gladiolus were the easiest I just painted dots over the stems in color's coordinating with the other flowers, I like them because they tie everything together. The red and blue flowered nails were completely made up, she just wanted those specific colors in a flower so I painted one in the basic daisy shape and the other with six pointed petals. Finally the daffodil, very similar to the design painted on day 123, just this time I only outlined the center part of the flower. I think they turned out pretty good, she loved them so that's all that matters. I just wish I was not in a rush, the picture is not as clear as I would have hoped but I did not have time to check before she left.
