Lady Bug Nail Art

It’s hump-day everybody! We’ve made it halfway through the week! A few days ago I realized that it’s been a while since I’ve actually posted a true blue nail art tutorial. So I looked through my little notebook of ideas and I came across the draft for this lady bug design and I figured that since spring was on it’s way, why not?


This lady bug design is the most adorable design that I’ve done in a while, and it’s actually pretty easy! The only real “tool” necessary is a dotting tool – and of course you could always use a bobby pin or toothpick (or even the end of a pencil if you’re desperate) as well.


Items You’ll Need

  • I Red A Good Book {Wet N Wild Megalast}
  • Correction Tape {Spoiled by Wet N Wild}
  • Black Tie {Confetti}
  • Permission To Proceed {Spoiled by Wet N Wild}
  • Dotting Tool

How To

  1. Paint index nail white, and all others red.
  2. On your index finger, use the dotting tool to create small leaves at opposite corners of your nail, and a red dot in between.
  3. Using the dotting tool, use a small amount of black polish to define the ladybug & leaves, and then to create the small dashes behind the ladybug.
  4. To finish up, use the dotting tool and black polish to create ladybug-like dots on all of the red nails.

Of course, don’t forget to finish off with a glossy top coat! I’m so happy with the way this turned out. It’s not often that ideas on paper come out the same way in reality, so this is a definite win in my book!

      The Wet N Wild Megalast line has really good staying power. It’s by far my favorite brand for affordable polish! Of course, no mani will stay long without a good top coat! šŸ˜‰
