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 163 - One Love

After so many years after his death, Bob Marley is still loved by so many people and generations across the world. For the anniversary of his death I just had to do these nails in tribute.

For the most part these nails were actually really easy. I will start by saying no I did not paint the ring finger...I wish I was that talented! But I'm not so instead I made a water slide decal, a technique I recently discovered and love. For the ring finger I sponged the three colors over the nail and applied the decal which was painted on clear decal paper. The black had printed off a little grainy so I went over with some black paint to make it look a little sharper. The other fingers were painted with a variety of striping paints by Orly and So Easy, I wanted to keep it random but all in the color scheme. I am just way too happy with how these nails turned out, it's always exciting when they look better on the nails then your head. Usually it's the other way around.

Polish: China Glaze Liquid Leather and Sunshine Pop
