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!

Go Nucks!

Well it happened, we finally get our hockey season! I'm happy because I just love the feel of Vancouver when hockey is on, I think we are the most die hard fans and really come together as a city to support our boys. But I'm not going to lie it's also been very nice, I have had so much extra time to complete more important things during these last few months with no hockey. I hate to say it, but I think what excites me the most about hockey starting , is that I finally get to use all this blue nail polish. Last years I went a little overboard during playoffs, I stocked up on every shade of blue close to our jerseys trying to find the perfect canucks blue. I was super pumped and found all sorts of awesome shades, but unfortunately our playoff run did not last as long as we had hoped. But now hockey is back and my polishes get there chance to shine!

I painted my nails for this design using my favorite blue polish Splish Splash by China Glaze, its a fantastic shade! The design is pretty basic, I went with crystals in our teams colors on the thumb. The logo was painted with acrylic paint and for the middle finger I dipped it in blue sparkles and wrote Go Nucks with my white instant artist paint. With the remaining two fingers I did a silver gradient from the cuticle, this look seems to be really popular right now and I think it worked perfectly for the design.
