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!

Gelish Gradient with animal print step by step

No comments
These days I do a lot of gradient designs, I find its far less obvious for regrowth and the client can get an extra week out their mani. Plus they are super pretty!!

Here is a simple Gelish gradient, you can also do this with polish but you have wait between coats for it to fully dry. I am very impatient so I stick with gel! Other than your polishes all you will need is a eye shadow applicator or makeup sponge. I like those cheap ones that come with eye shadow palettes, the ones with the plastic handle and a tiny sponge on each end. I pick up bags of them from my beauty supply.

Step 1. solid coat of Gelish Light elegance

Step 2. sponge Gelish Sunburst over the tip fading down, you made need a second coat just at the very tip

Step 3. brush on a layer of Gelish June Bride, then thin it out along the cuticle using the other end of the side of the applicator.

Step 4. Using a striping Paint paint in some tiger stripes

Step 5. seal in the design with Gelish Top it Off
