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 280 - Ghosts

No comments
The inspiration for this design came from a post I did last month. I had painted the nails alternating stripes and polka dots. I had also painted roses. Today I wanted to do something similar with a Halloween design. To make it a little bit different I went with super thin lines, tiny dots and of course ghosts instead of roses.
 
This design was quite simple, the real challenge was painting thin straight lines and keeping them as evenly spaced as possible. The ghosts and Boo!s were simply painted with a white striping paint and outlined with black. When I was done painting, I felt as though something was missing. I decided to add some crystal in green, purple and orange to add some extra color. I also added the odd tiny hexagon glitter around the crystals.
 
I am not in love with nails, I was actually really excited to remove it. But surprisingly they were a hit on Instagram, I am not sure what it is that I do not like but there is definitely something.
