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 I swore I would never blog again, but here I am back at it 5 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 professional 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 stuff! I hope you enjoy the content!

Day 261 - Tinkerbell French

1 comment
Today I was so excited when one of my cousins came in and wanted Tinkerbell on her nails. A while back I did a full Tinkerbell design that spread over 5 full nails, I have fun painting these designs but they are not practical for everyday wear since they look silly when you separate your fingers. So of course I loved the idea of doing a modified version that my clients could wear, plus Tink is my absolute fave and I would gladly paint her on a 100 different designs.

I started with a gel polish french using a light purple shade, next I pressed the loose glitter into the tip completely covering the french. Using a green acrylic paint I painted a thin stripe along the smile line to give it that Tinkerbell look, then to top it off I painted in some random pixie dust.  On the ring finger I painted the partial Tinkerbell face using Orly Instant Artist in Beige, Hot Yellow, Chocolate, Sky Blue, Fiery Red, Crisp White and Jet Black

I am really happy I got to do this one and turns out, I like it way more than the original. It's really fun but also very wearable.

  1. I love these nails! Tinkerbell is my favorite too. You did her face so well I can't believe how much detail you can get onto that tiny nail.
