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 158 - Hawaiian Print

Today was such a great sunny day, I just had to go for a design that was bright and cheery. Yesterday I had the day off and spent the day picking out a new beach cruiser bicycle so I felt inspired to do a beachy print.

I polished my nails with my new hot pink from the 2012 summer neons collection, it's definitely a fun color and I predict it will be popular in the months to come. For the design I started with the leaves, using a bright green acrylic craft paint and a long striping brush I painted one line diagonally across each nail and the painted individual leaves coming of it, with a darker green striping paint I outlined them for a little definition. The flowers were painted using instant artist paint in fiery red, hot orange and hot yellow. Usually I would never pair red and hot pink together but I think in this design it actually works.
