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 266 - Anna Sui

No comments
Today's post was painted on my friend who has a little bit of a Anna Sui obsession, but who can blame her. The cosmetics are definitely not the greatest but the girlie packaging is irresistible. I just love the color combo of the purple and black, then throw in the swirls, butterflies and roses way too adorable!
This manicure was done using Gelish to make it a lot more durable.  I started with the black polish painting a diagonal french on every finger except for the ring fingers which I painted in a soft lilac color. The polish used for the ring finger was no where near the color I wanted so I painted one coat to add strength and then blended a custom purple shade using acrylic paint. I used this for the second coat of the french. Using the same purple I added little swirls along the black french. On these nails I also painted in little purple roses using white and a darker shade of purple paint. With my Jet Black Instant Artist paint I outlined the flowers and added some black swirls on the purple tips. To finish off the design, I made some butterflies using a 3d mold and some black acrylic. When the butterflies were hardened I glued them to the nail and coated everything with some top gloss.
