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 188 - Starry Night

5 comments
For today's post I wanted to recreate Van Gogh's Starry Night. I have always loved art and I get so much inspiration from the masterpieces.

Even though this design seems to have a lot going on, I found it easy because the lines did not have to be crisp and so exact. When I am coping a picture onto my nails I find it easier if I break down the photo into sections. I found the actual picture of Starry Night (pictured below) on google images and opened it in paint where I drew three vertical lines cutting the picture into quarters. That way I could paint each nail based on the section of the photo, which helps me keep the proportions right. This painting is made up of tons of tiny little brush strokes, So I just painted in the basic shapes and then added more and more colors, layering and building up each detail


Polish: The base color is completely covered so here is the list of Orly Instant Artist paints I used: Jet Black, Hot Blue, Crisp White, Hot Yellow, True Blue, Sky Blue  and Yellow submarine
