So, I thought we'd have a bit of fun today at WellNailed because, after all, that's what we're all about. As you may of guessed from the title of this post, I did Ladybirds - 

So cute!

The colours I used for this look are all Barry M 
- 262 Bright Red
- 47 Black
- 66 Matt White

- To begin, two basecoats and then two coats of red - 

- Next, using a small brush from my set off ebay, I painted the black detail down the middle of my nails - 

- Then came the spots, using a dotting tool - 

- And finally, the white spots for eyes
- Top coat to seal.

Don't forget, you don't need dotting tools for this kind of thing. You can use anything, from a hair grip to a toothpick!

I love doing this kind of look, just lots of fun!!

Hope you all enjoy ;) 
See you next time,
