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 I swore I would never blog again, but here I am back at it 5 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 professional 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 stuff! I hope you enjoy the content!

Day 156 - May the fourth be with you!

Happy Star Wars day to all the fans out there! This design is dedicated to my brother, he loves the movies. Growing up there was countless Star Wars marathon movie nights, I was never really a fan I think it was because as a child there was a year where I had ongoing nightmares of being kidnapped by ewocks, it was pretty traumatic, lol!!

These nails were definitely a challenge, there is nothing I hate more than having to paint people, especially characters that are so well known. But I went with more of a cartoon look to make it a little bit easier. I decided to start by painting all the outlines of the characters with black, that way I could adjust the lines until I was happy with them. When everything looked good I colored it all in using a variety of acrylic and instant artist paints. I think everything turned out pretty good, my brother loved them so since I got his approval I'm happy!
