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 231 - lightning Bolts

No comments
For today's post I wanted to go with a design that was simple, bright and fun. I'm not too sure why, but I had it in my head I wanted lightning bolts. It could have been because of the crazy lightning we had on the weekend, but who knows? I can't explain half of the ideas that pop into my head

I started withe the base color, which is the pink tone on the bottom left of lightning bolts. Next I painted the lightning bolts in black, while these dried I filled in the top corner with Instant Artist Grape. For the final step I outlined each Lightning bolt  with Platinum and added in some black crystals at the top of each one. All the colors used for the design are Orly Instant Atist paints

The above picture is taken the usual way with my iphone, but I found that no matter what I did the bright polish was not showing up good. So I decided to add a filter to match it as good as I could (shown in second photo)

Polish: Purple Panic
