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!

Sparkle Fade and simple Filligree

No comments
Today's design was done on a client, she was going in vacation and wanted something a little fancier than usual. I came up with this design and could not be happier with the outcome

This is a very simple design with a big impact. I started with Gelish Forever Beauty, but any neutral pink shimmer will do. I cured the polish then pressed loose sparkles into the nail fading blue at the tip into pink. My local nail supplier sells these amazing glitter concoctions, there are numerous sizes and shapes of glitter all mixed in one little pot, everything from tiny dots, to confetti and there are even stars mixed in there. I will post a picture of the glitters below. Once the glitter was all applied I sealed it with a coat of top it off Gelish, this gives me a smooth surface to work with my nail paints. Using my Jet Black Instant Artist paint I painted in a very simple filigree design on the tips of the nails, to finish it off I glued a single purple crystal in each corner and gave it one more coat of top it off.

These nails were lots of fun and I know the client loved them so this one is definitely considered a success!!
