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 and I wasn’t sure if I would ever come back to it, but here I am many 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 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 content! I hope you enjoy my posts and appreciate your support!

Day 174 - Gemini

No comments
Every time I do one of these designs I am just amazed another month has flown by. But here we are now in Gemini, one of the signs I was dreading the most. I have shared in the past how much I hate painting people and for today's post I did not have to paint one person but instead twins. When I googled Gemini twins most of the pictures to pop up we attractive females but after reading up on wikipedia I decided to go with the twins Castor and Pollux from the Greek tale about the constellation. Gemini is a wind sign so I went with the color combo of silvers and blues,  I know wind does not actually have a color but I imagine if it did it would be some where in that color pallet.

I have already done five prior zodiac designs, so I kinda felt as though I was in auto pilot painting  this post. All of the designs are done the same, the printing across the middle of the fingers painted in a color that matches the element, then outlined in black then white. The pinkie has the symbol also done the same way. The thumb is the challenge, as mentioned before I went with the twins. For this nail I painted the characters first in the gold tone then added the color details, finishing it off with some outlining.
