Spring Challenge 2: Ladybugs

Here's my take on the second theme, ladybugs. A few of the other ladies had already finished theirs while I was still pondering on what to do. Well, one of them had done bugs on a leaf which became my inspiration of sorts.

I don't like how my bugs in the green grass turned out though. I imagined the whole thing a lot brighter... meh. This is also the reason why there is only one picture...

The little bugs kind of look like spiders... :( Red spiders. I like the antenna of the big ones though.

I used OPI Bubble Bath to even out my discolored nails first and then used Catrice I Sea You! and Sold Out For Ever as well as Rival de Loop  #01 Spring Melody to create the green parts of this mani. The bugs are painted using acrylics for the black and an unnamed red polish. That's it.

And here are the links to some of the other ladybug manicures ;)

  1. Uwaaa this is so adorable! I love ladybugs <3

    1. Then you should take a look at the other girl's manis. THOSE are adorable! xD

  2. I think you are the only one who thought to have the wings open. I love that. It looks really good.

  3. Aww, I'm flattered you used mine as sort of an inspiration! This turned out really cute and I love how the ladybugs stand out against the pretty pale green

    1. I just thought I should mention my source of inspiration ;)

    1. Even though ladybugs get on my nerves in fall... I'm kind of looking forward to seeing them around this spring.
