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 238 - Energy Drinks

As mentioned yesterday, last week was super crazy. With all the extra hours I was working I was in desperate need of some energy. I did get through it with the help of some Red Bull and 5Hour Energy shots. I do not drink them often but when needed I do enjoy an energy drink or two, they can  be a real life saver. So for today's design I felt inspired by these beverages.

I started by painting the nails in the colors of the cans. The Rock Star and Monster logos were the easiest, they were only one color and a have a pretty easy logo. On the 5 Hour nail I sponged a yellow fade on the tip of the nail and painted in the blue on the background, next I painted the mountain and the words in black. The amp nail was fun, I started with one brush of sheer green polish over the black, then using two shades of green nail paints I painted in the vertical lines, the logo was done in silver finished with a black outline. Last was the Red Bull nail, this is my favorite brand of energy drink but definitely the design I enjoyed painting the least. I started by painting in the blue diagonal shapes in the background, then using a yellow paint I painted the circle and words. Using red I painted the bulls (which was very difficult) and went over the yellow words with a thinner brush to create an outline look. I had so much fun painting these nails and I loved the challenge!
