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 201 - Italia

I know I've already done a bunch of Euro nails and it's probably getting boring but today's post is for my Husband. Italy is his team and I wasn't sure if they were going to make it through to the next round so I decided to paint this design today just in case. I did have some doubts but Italy pulled through and won, so all is good in my household. And even though I'm not a huge soccer fan I love my nails, This designed turned out much better than I originally imagined it.!

For the polish I went with Splish Splash. I have used this color a lot of over the last month but it's the perfect Azzurri blue so I went with it again. The design was painted mostly with Instant Artists, with the exception of the gold and green where I used plain acrylic paint. I have mentioned my issues with Orly's green selection in the past and the gold paint just goes on a little translucent, which is disappointing because the silver is so awesome. The paints used for this one are: Jet Black, True Blue, Crisp White and Fiery Red.
