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 185 - Diamond Jubilee

Today's post is for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.  Today Queen Elizabeth celebrates 60 years as monarch, an event definitely worthy of a nail design.

This entire post was done using Orly Instant Artist paints. I was quite shocked how quickly I was able to paint this, but it sure did help that I knew exactly what I was doing on each nail before I started. I was inspired by the Google Doodle for the event, which had diamonds and the two corgis. The flag was an obvious choice, I love the Union Jack and I think it looks awesome painted on nails. And then for the other two fingers I went with the crown and the Queen's cypher. I think these nails turned out pretty awesome! I could not be happier with this design
