April Showers.. Challenge - Ladybirds

Hello everyone :)
Today I'm back with another April Showers Bring May Flowers challenge post. Today's challenge was ladybird nails! Originally I was going to do a scene across my nails like a garden with lady birds but I didn't have enough time :( I will definitely try it in the next few days though :) So here's what I came up with...

I decided to go with ladybirds that are more real rather than cartoon like. So I searched for pictures of lady birds and tried to copy it as well as I could :)

I used two coats of H&M Berry Love for the base on all nails. This polish is my favourite red, it's a jelly polish but it's so bright and beautiful :) I then drew on black tips with Revlon Lunar and added dots for the eyes with OPI Alpine Snow and a dotting tool. I also used dotting tools to create the spots on the wings and the line down the back.

I'm so pleased with how this turned out, I think it's obvious what they are and they're so cute and appropriate for the season at the moment :) Also, my nail art skills are getting better as my right hand looks just as good as my left and that never happens! My son has an obsession with ladybirds at the minute so we've had lots of fun making them crawl all over him :P
what do you think about ladybird nails? Have you ever tried them? Let me know in the comments.
Thanks for reading :)

  3. Pretty! I've never tried to do Ladybugs. Btw, It's so cute that in the UK you say "Ladybirds" I love it so much more than "bug."
