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 217 - Star Spangled Nails

Happy fourth of July to our neighbors to the south!!! Hope you all had a wonderful day of festivities! For todays post I wanted to paint a version of the American flag, in my opinion it's one of the coolest flags, plus I had these stars which I have never used so I thought this would be the perfect oportunity.

This was very easy to do! I started with a white base and applied a coat of pearl over top. Then using my Fiery Red Instant Artist paint I painted vertical stripes over the nails. I free handed the stripes because I didn't want to wait for them to dry but you could definitely use tape for crisper lines. Next I painted a diagonal blue tip and added the silver stars and my design was complete! I think these turned out pretty good, even as a canadian I think I would wear these.
