Tutorial- Easy Peasy Ladybird

Since I was getting comments that you guys wanted me to do more nail art and tutorials, so here's my attempt at Ladybird nails!!

Here are the tools that I used, but go ahead and switch it up if you want!

Step One: Paint nails a deep red color. I ended up doing two to three coats to get the color I wanted, but for more opaque polish, one coat should be fine.

Step Two: Make a french manicure like sweep of black polish across the top of the nail and then carefully make a thin black line of polish down the middle of the nail. (If your line isn't straight, don't worry! On real ladybugs, they're not always straight, plus the dots will cover some of it up!)

Step Three: Make the dots! Now you're done! That's easy and super duper cute, (and perfect for those little polish people at home!)

However, I took it a step further and made leaves as well.
Step Four: Remove the color on your other nails, and paint them green. I used a Sally Girl Polish, but you use whatever green you love. :)

Step Five: Draw a thin line of green down the center.

Step Six: Draw thin lines off of the main line of green.

Step Seven: Apply this to all of your remaining nails.

And you're done!!

Hope you liked this post!

Until next time,
