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!

YVR

What a crazy month it has been, January is suppost to be my slow month but I have been super busy. It seems like almost all of my clients are off to wonderful warm destinations and need to get in to get their nails and toes looking great for their vacation. After weeks of hearing about these holidays, I'm feeling the need more than ever to get away. I have booked a little vacation in April, but that seems a lot further than it actually is. With all this talk of travel, I felt inspired to do an airport themed nail design. In Vancouver we happen to have a great airport, In my (possibly biased) opinion, its the nicest one I've been in.

The logo for YVR is pretty simple. I painted the three letters over the middle fingers, with the color scheme I totally lucked out and had the perfect shades of polish needed. On the two remaining nails I wasn't too sure what I wanted to paint, I liked the look of the solid color paired with the white design. I continued this look onto the pinky nail with the airplane, but for the thumb, I thought I had a wonderful idea...I painted the outside section of the airport. After spending quite some time on the thumb, I finally finished it and absolutely hated it. I took a quick photo and removed it right away. As much as I dislike it, I've posted it below for your reference. In the end I decided to stick with the same theme as the other nails and I painted some items associated with travel.
