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 237 - Cars

I am still alive I promise... but I have failed miserably on my daily blog posts. It has been the craziest week of my life and I have not had a minute of extra time to paint my nails. Just to give you all a little insight of what has been going on with me...on to of my regular nail clients, I have been painting a full wall mural and helping out my husband who is short staffed at his distribution warehouse, working into the late hours of the night. most days I have been functioning on 4-5 hours of sleep. But enough complaining, life is back on track and I jumping in full force. I am hoping to be completely caught up by Friday.

For today's post my inspiration came from the Cars 2 mural that I have been painting, It's all I could think about for days so naturally that is what popped into my head when I thought about my nails. For this design I went with a Lightning McQueen theme, I painted the eyes on the thumb, the Rust-eze logo on the index and the 95 with the lightning bolt over the remaining three fingers. The colors I used are Instant Artist Jet Black, Crisp White, Hot Blue, True Blue, Hot Orange and Hot Yellow. I am going to attach an Instagram pic of the mural I painted to the bottom of the post, it was mostly hand painted with some airbrushing. I am pretty excited with how it turned out!

  1. I love the nails, as usual, but that mural is nuts! I would have loved to have something like that in my room when I was a kid.
