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 189 - More 3D Flowers

No comments
Today I was really wanting some 3D nail art. In my life before the blog I always wore 3D nail art. I love the look of it, It's so easy to do and yet it makes a big statement.

I wish I could say I had mad skills when it comes to free hand sculpting acrylic nail art, but I am definitely still a beginner in that department. When I do 3D, 99% of the time it is created from a mold, which in my opinion is the greatest thing in the nail industry. All you do is press some acrylic into the silicone mold, wait for it to be semi dry and press it on to the nail and ta da, you have fabulous nails! I had used the mold in a previous post (day 140) so I wanted to make it a little different. Using a teal striping paint from color club I added in a bit of color to the base of each nail and then finished it off each flower with some glitter (China Glaze White Cap) and a crystal. The design needed a little bit more, so I added in the teal swirls and little white dots. These nails are definitely fun, this is a design I would have definitely worn for a few weeks.
