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 173 - Caviar Manicure

No comments
Lately I have seen the caviar manicure every where, it's been on magazine covers, all over the Internet and now I see Sephora is even carrying a DIY caviar manicure kit. So for today's post I thought I would give it a go myself.

The concept of these nails is really simple, but believe me they are a bit of work. All you do is paint two coats of polish and then sprinkle the beads over the nail and press them down using your finger. I found the beads were a little tricky to smooth out over the nail,  some spots had too many beads where other spots were missing some. But after messing around with it for a little while I got it all smoothed out.  I found the key is to work on one finger at a time and definitely wait awhile for it to dry. I think the look is pretty cute but not worth the headache. At first I was super excited to use the bullion beads which I have had in my drawer for years but I quickly remembered why I do not use these things, they are way too finicky.
