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 255 - Acrylic Inlay

No comments
On the weekend we had a photoshoot at the salon where I work and I did the nails and makeup. This specific set as one of my favorites so I decided to use it for today's post. The theme we were going for was a peacock theme. I have painted a couple peacock designs already so I decided to go in a completely different direction with it.

I started with four custom blended shades of colored acrylic, a royal blue, teal, purple and gold. I started with a diagonal strip of purple then while the acrylic was still wet I added the purple hexagon glitters (aka glequins) Next I applied a gold stripe going across the centre of the design, keeping it heavier at the tip fading downward. In the remaining corner I faded the royal blue into the teal and applied the color coordinating glequins. I then capped everything in clear acrylic to seal in the inlay. To finish of the design I painted the black lines.

I think these turned out great for the shoot, I added a picture below.
