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 206 - Vancouver Jazz Fest


Until the end of the month Vancouver is celebrating the International Jazz Festival, so I decided that for todays post I would paint an assortment of jazz instruments.

For this design I chose this rich plum color, it's one of my favorite China Glaze polishes. On top of the purple base I painted the lines for the musical notes, I started with black and painted a coat of gold on top. Next I painted all the instruments using Color Club Bronze, Instant Artist Chocolate, Solid Gold, Jet Black and Crisp White. I wanted to keep the instruments pretty monochromatic, because I like the look of the purple and golds together. On the ring finger I painted part of the logo for the event. Due to lack of space I did have to leave out the writing that surrounded the logo. To finish off the design I painted the music notes using Sky Blue Instant Artist to add a little pop of color.

Polish: China Glaze Stella
