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 204 - Cancer

No comments
I cant believe how quickly the months fly by. Another zodiac sign has already passed and we are now starting Cancer. I always get excited when a new Zodiac sign is coming up. I find them so much fun to do, plus every day that I can plan ahead of time makes my life so much easier. This far in the biggest challenge is coming up with a good idea every day.

Cancer is a water sign so I wanted to go with a nice ocean colored blue, for the base I layered two different polishes, one dark and the other shimmery to get the effect I was looking for.  Once the base was dry I painted in the lettering using Color Club Bronze striping paint, I just love this coppery gold polish and I think it looks great with the other colors. The rest of the design I used Instant Artist paints in Crisp White, Jet Black and Fiery Red. The Character for Cancer is the crab, which I must say was a lot easier to paint than some of the signs. but what I like most about this design is the color, after staring at it for so long, the bronze, blue and white reminds me of a beach with the water coming in, which is actaully perfect for this design!
