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 183 - Prom Queen

No comments
With grad season quickly approaching, I wanted to do a design that I thought was good for prom. These nails have tons of sparkle and bling which make it perfect for the event. But also makes it very frustrating to photograph. I posted a couple pics in different lighting, I hope you but you get the idea of what I was going for. In real life these nails look great!

I started by painting the nails in a soft pearl pink, while the polish was still wet I dipped each finger into my opal glitter to give it some sparkle. Using a black striping paint I painted the black chevron french, I chose black because I think it looks quite elegant when worn with formal attire, also it seems to be very popular with the high school kids. Next I painted a silver criss cross pattern on the tips of the nails and added a  tiny pink sequin where the lines crossed. To finish the design I added a large round swarovzski crystal with a smaller almond shaped one beneath on the. The ring finger was special so it got the large 3D Crystal crown, another goody picked up at my local night market.
