Ladybird Nail Art Guide
I don't usually paint insects on my nails (or any animals!) but I randomly decided to try out painting ladybirds because I thought it looked really cute. Plus I wanted to see if I could do it or whether it would be a disaster.

It was actually really easy to do. I was pretty surprised. I am not usually very good at such precise things but I think this design turned out really well.

You could totally paint your nails like this if you were dressing up as a ladybird for a fancy dress party or for Halloween.

I would love to hear what you think of this design? Have you tried anything like this before?

  • Step 1

    Apply base coat.

  • Step 2

    Apply red polish and leave to dry.

  • Step 3

    Paint a straight black line down the middle of your nail using a nail art brush-I used the Models Own nail art pen/brush to do this.

  • Step 4

    Paint a curved black line near the tip of your nails and fill in with black polish.

  • Step 5

    While this is drying use a dotting tool to dot black spots onto your nail on each side of the black line.

  • Step 6

    Use white polish and a dotting tool to dot the eyes onto your ladybirds.

  • Step 7

    Then dot black polish into the middle of your white dots to look like pupils.

  • Step 8

    Leave to dry and apply top coat.
