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 292 - 3D Skulls

No comments
I haven't had 3D nail art in a little while, so for this post I wanted to go with some 3D skulls. I love using the acrylic molds, before my blog my nails were always fully embellished with 3D but now it is far to difficult to remove to have it on for a day.
 
I started with a glittery charcoal polish. For the french I used China Glaze Black Mesh crackle polish, I didn't want a solid tip so I thought this would have a nice effect. Next I went over the smile line with a silver sparkle and some tiny white dots. The last step was to create the skulls, this is super easy with the 3D molds. All you do is press the acrylic into the mold and wait until its about 75% hardened. You want some flex so it forms completely to the nail. The only difficult part about this design is waiting for the acrylic to dry, especially if you want multiples of the same size object.
