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!

Matte vs Sparkle Filigree

No comments
I am loving the combo of matte polish with either a super glossy design or sparkle. When paired with the matte it creates a really nice contrast

For the design I had to use my new favourite polish, Blue Bells Ring by China Glaze. It already dries pretty matte but with the top coat it's perfect. I started by painting my nails with this awesome blue, then before continuing with the design I gave the nails a coat of Orly's Matte Top Coat. Next using my Jet Black Instant Artist paint I painted the French tip and the swirled filigree design. Originally I was going to go with shiner black so using a long thin striping brush and patent leather top coat I went over all the black design. Once complete I wasn't overly excited so I decided to continue with some glitter. With my Platinum Glitter paint I went over the swirls one last time.

I am very happy that I went with the glitter, it definitely makes the design. I'll add pictures of both below so you can see what in talking about.
