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 159 - Butterfly Fade

1 comment
Today I wanted to paint a cute Spring design so I went with butterflies on a sparkly nail.

I decided to go with the fade as a base for a softer look. To paint the fade I started with the soft blue polish applying it to the top 3/4 of the nail using a make-up sponge. I then sponged the green color over the tips fading it into the blue polish, to blend it all together I painted a coat of glitter polish over the entire nail. I painted the butterflies using three different shades of instant artist and the outline was done in black. For the details on the wings I painted a y in the middle of each one and added three pearl white dots. When I was taking the picture it was way too reflective so I decided to add a coat of matte top coat, which I actually think turned out Pretty cool with the sparkles.
