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 157 - Cinco De Mayo

I love holidays, it makes coming up with a design idea sooo much easier! These nails are super fun, I'm not sure if I could fit any more fiesta into one hand if I tried. When I think of Mexico the first thing that comes to my mind is the bright lively colors so I wanted to paint a design that was equally vibrant to the culture of Mexico.

I painted the tips of the nails in a nice bright red shade called Salsa which I thought was pretty fitting! After the French was done I painted an orange and green zig zag over the smile line. To make the colors really pop I added a thin line of white between each color. Next step was the square swirls, I painted them with a yellow striping paint, placing them randomly over the nails. For the rest of the design I painted each shape in the base color first than painted over top using the color for the centre and adding details at the end. I realized when I uploaded the picture my top coat dragged some of the nail art but other than that I love these nails because they kind of remind me of my Spanish text book, one of my favorite classes in high school. I'm lucky if I can speak 10 words of Spanish but had a great time trying!
