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 276 - Halloween Crackle

No comments
Today's post is a fun simple design anyone can do. I decided to do this design because I have so many crackle and shatter polishes that I have no idea what to do with. I really like the look of them but they never were popular with my clients. I have heard on numerous occasions that they look a little scary, so I thought they would be perfect for Halloween.
I started with a black polish, painting it partially up the nail not worrying about the diagonal line. Then using a flat square brush and polish remover I cleaned up the line so I was left with a diagonal tip without any polish. Using a neon green polish I filled in the tip with two coats of polish. Next I went over with China Glaze Ghoulish Glow top coat to make the polish glow in the dark. In order apply the purple crackle I had to wait until the tip was completely dry. Once I was good to go I painted one thicker coat of crackle. The thicker you apply the polish the larger cracks you get, I am not a fan of lots of small cracks, so I always paint it on thick. To finish off this design I pressed a heavy orange glitter into the line separating the black from the crackle.
