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 198 - Music Notes

No comments
My girlfriend came into salon with the idea of music notes and pianos over a french manicure, This design is so simple but I love it!

Since this was done on natural nails and I wanted it to last, I started with a Gelish french manicure. I find hand painted designs always last the full three weeks under the top gloss. Once the second coat of white was cured, I wiped it with cleanser to remove the slippery layer and then proceeded with the design. Using my platinum Instant Artist paint, I painted three silver lines across the pinky, middle and index fingers, on the other two fingers I just painted a single line below the french. For the music notes, I painted a variety of different notes using Jet Black. Using the same paint I painted the piano. This was really easy, All I did was paint evenly spaced vertical lines across the nail and then painted in a little rectangle on the upper left side of each line. To finish it off, I gave it a coat of top it off top gloss.
