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 200 - Father's Day

Wow already 200 designs, I can believe how time has flown by!  I hope everyone had a great day with their dad's today!After having a huge feast with the family I was glad I had planned an easy design for tonight.  I knew I was going to do this design for father's day ever since Zoey Deschanel wore the tuxedo nails at the Golden Globes. As soon as I saw them I thought instead of bow ties I would paint collars with ties.

This design is really easy, and the possibilities for the ties are endless. I was planning on painting them all different, but changed my mind after painting the first nail. I just loved the combo of the blue, silver and black stripes. To paint the design I started with a white base and then using a black striping paint I painted a V in both corners of each nail for the collars. Next I painted the ties using Sky blue instant artist, with my platinum paint I painted 3 diagonal lines across the main part of each tie and one line in the opposite direction on the knot part. To finish the design I outlined each tie with black and added an additional horizontal black line inside the silver. I think these turned out pretty cute and they gave me inspiration for a future design so stay tuned, you may see another twist on this soon.
