I am really loving sharing tutorials with you all at the moment, and am planning on doing a whole series of new ones very soon, but today let me share with you how I painted my ladybird nails yesterday!

How To Paint Ladybird Nail Art

Here it is step by step…

How To Paint Ladybird Nail Art Step 1

Start by painting your nail with your favourite red nail polish. Here I used Barry M Blood Orange.

Using a small paintbrush and a black nail polish, paint a small semi circle on the tip of your nail for the ladybird’s head, and a thin line down the middle of your nail for the wings. The black polish I used was Nails Inc Black Taxi.

Use a paintbrush or a medium dotting tool with the same black polish to create three spots on each wing.

For the ladybird’s eyes, use your favourite white polish with a medium dotting tool to dot the whites onto it’s head on the tip of your nail. I used Barry M Matt White.

Finally, use the black polish again with either a tiny dotting tool or a toothpick to create the pupils in the eyes.

And there you have it! A whole hand of cute little ladybirds!

Why not try this design using different colours? Maybe reverse the black and red or even create a unusual yellow and black ladybird!
