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 230 - On Pointe

I am absolutely loving my pointed nails and I was stuck for an idea all day of what to paint on them. I kept thinking what could I paint on a point, after saying this several times in my head it hit me, instead of on a point...on pointe! I had a request for ballet nails a while ago and I have been putting it off, so today I thought two pairs of ballet slippers on pointe would work perfectly.

These were really, really easy to do! All I did was paint the slippers using Pink Pastel Instant Artist, then I filled in the areas for the feet in Beige and finished it by outlining everything using Jet Black. I think these turned out great, unfortunately I think I may have to ditch the pointed nails though. I'm hoping to keep them for the rest of the week, but it's very difficult coming up with designs to paint on them. I promise you though, they will return!!  I love them too much to give them up forever.
