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 233 - Olympic Flame

1 comment
Since the Olympic flame arrived in London today, I thought it would be a good time to post my first Olympics themed design.

I started with my newest polish from the Safari Collection, it is a fabulous champagne gold glitter polish which I just love! and I am sure you will be seeing it again on a couple more designs.  I knew going in I was painting the flame, since it worked so perfectly with the pointy nails I decided to paint Big Ben as well. Next I painted the flag on the pinkie nail. I was then left with the middle finger and thumb where I painted the 2012 logo and the Olympic rings with London under it. The paint used for this one are Orly Instant Artist Fiery Red, Jet Black, Solid Gold and Crisp White. On the rings I also used a couple of acrylic paints.

I am pretty happy with how these turned out, they are not a favorite of mine but I think they work for the theme.
