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 216 - Independence Day Abstract

Today's post is for my american followers, For Canada Day I did two posts so I thought I would be fair and do the same for 4th of July. For this design I went with something easier, I had a nail fatality today and had to paint this using my opposite hand.

I want to start by saying the blue I used is definitely my new favorite blue. I picked it up by accident when I was replacing my Splish Splash and it turned out to be a really pleasant surprise. Even though it is a darker shade it is still bright enough to be considered neon and best of all its packed with glitter, what more could I want? The design as mentioned before was painted using my left hand so I kept it pretty simple. I used three shades of Instant Artist paints,  Fiery Red, Crisp White and Platinum Glitter to paint random lines, some curved, some straight going in different directions. To add a little more glitz I went in with my tiny red sequins and added in a final line. The hardest part about this design was taking the picture, when I tried to pose my right hand in the usual position it kept going a little gimpy.
