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 286 - Blood and Fangs

1 comment
On monday I couldn't bring myself to remove my zombie nails, so today is a double post day. I decided a good transition from zombies would be for me to move onto my second favorite monster Vampires. This design is a lot more simpler than my last, but also lots of fun. But I must admit this one is a little bit more wearable.

This design does not have many steps. I started with a solid glossy black polish, I always go with China Glaze for my black I find it has the best coverage. Next using my Instant Artist paints I painted the lips and dripping blood, for this I used Fiery Red. With my Crisp White paint I added in the fangs and little highlight marks here and there to add detail. The final step was to go back in with Jet Black and clean up the lines a little bit.

This design is super easy to do and so much fun! I know vampires are a popular costume choice, so hopefully I will get to do this one again!
