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 221 - Wimbledon/Roger Federer

After sleeping the afternoon away yesterday I was awake really early this morning and it was really nice to be up and watch the Wimbledon final live with my husband. He is a huge Roger Federer fan and since this was such a big match I decided to do a design in his honor.

I started with a tennis court colored green polish on four of the five fingers, the ring finger was painted white because all the players wear white for Wimbledon. Next using a variety of nail art and acrylic craft paints, I painted the design. On the thumb I painted the logo for Wimbledon, this was definitely the hardest because of the writing. On the index finger I painted a simple tennis court, the swiss flag on the middle finger is because Federer is from Switzerland. On the white nail I painted the RF, this is Roger Federer's personal logo that he had on all his gear. Finally the pinky I painted a pattern that looked like strings of a tennis racquet and then l added in the ball to finish it off. I always love doing a specific theme and had tons of fun painting this one, but the best part is that in the end he won the match so it turned out to be a pretty exciting morning!
