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!

Embossed Sweater Nails

No comments
This simple design is always a popular pick over the colder months, it just looks cozy like a little sweater on your nail. 

The hardest part of this is having a gel polish, art gel and powder that all match.  I often go with white it’s the easiest to match but you can also use the gel polish and clear powder to do this. If you are using the gel polish for the design paint a little bit on a palette and allow it to sit out in the air for a little bit, this will thicken it up for a more raised look and cleaner lines.


  • Step 1- Apply 2 coats gel polish, I used Gelish Pink Smoothie
  • Step 2/3- Apply Matte Top Coat, cure then cleanse. If needed buff top coat for a completely matte finish
  • Step 4- Paint your design using a thicker gel paint. Do not cure yet! I used Gelish Art Form Gel in Pastel Light Pink, it is 2d gel for a raised effect.
  • Step 5- Sprinkle matching dip or acrylic powder over the uncured design, allow it to absorb and tap of extra. Now cure the nail. I used Gelish Pink Smoothie Dip Powder
  • Step 6- Use a soft brush to remove any extra glitter from the nail. Your design is complete, it will have a raised texture, do not apply top coat on top.
