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 278 - Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!! (well at least everyone in Canada) hope you had a wonderful weekend filled with family and way too much food. I know I sure did. I had two thanksgiving feasts and I am definitely feeling it. 
As a kid I was always excited about this time of year. Thanksgiving was the start of the classic TV specials, starting with Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, taking us through Halloween into Christmas. So when I was thinking of what I wanted to paint on my nails I knew I had to paint Charlie Brown. I had painted a peanuts design for Christmas and it was one of my favorites, so I saw no other option for this post.
I started with a simple pearlized neutral polish, my nails are quite short right now so I didn't want to go with anything too busy. The characters were painted using instant artist paints in Chocolate, Beige, Hot Yellow, Crisp White and Jet Black. On the Index and pinkie finger I used two China Glaze polishes in Jamaican Out and Street Racing and applied then randomly in a dotting motion, next using my black paint I went over the dots and drew in some leaves. I was happy with how this turned out so decided to add some leaves  to the background of the other nails as well. to finish the design I painted in a tree on the index finger and the nails were complete.
I think this design is lots of fun for thanksgiving! it's not quite as awesome as the Christmas version but it is definitely my favorite fall design that I have ever painted.
