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!

Blue Bells Ring

Today's post, for my second Swatch'n Saturday is China Glaze's Blue Bells Ring. This polish is hands down my favourite Blue polish and I have quite the collection. Being from Vancouver I am constantly on the hunt for the perfect Canucks blue, so over the years I have accumulated quite a few. I had a mix emotion of pride and guilt the other day when I used my new China Glaze app to colour match my jersey, I actually owned all 18 suggestions.

The reason why I chose this beautiful metallic cobalt blue is because tonight was Earth Hour and I thought the colour would make the perfect base for a earth themed mani. My Earth Hour was pretty uneventful, after a busy day at the salon and a dark apartment I was out for the count, I fell asleep by 8:35.

This design is super simple and the combo of metallic polishes looks great together. I started with my Blue Bells Ring Base, then using my small dotting tool and my darker green polish I added in random earth like shapes over the nails. Then with a softer golden green I added some minor detail to the center of the green I previously painted. The two shades I used are from China Glaze's Bohemian Collection. The darker colour is Unpredictable and the other is Rare and Radient both stunning shades. To finish off the design I used my Black instant Artist paint ant outlined the cuticle area, this created a more rounded earth like shape on the nail.

I love this design, it is a combo of two of things I'm most passionate about, which are preserving our earth and nail art. I hope you like them as much as I do!
