Allo polish Pals!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Mine was a super chilled one.. I liked it like that!
Has anyone had a BBQ yet? I am smelling them ALL the time here in Holland, its one of my favorite summer scents! (although not like I'd like to bottle the smell and use it as a perfume!!)
Today's nail art is again inspired by the weekly challenge over on Tiny Canvas (Haven't you joined us yet?!) where this weeks prompt was to create bug nail art.
I've done a few ladybird (ladybug) nails before but I decided I wanted to try a close up version.
You can see my two previous manicures below the new one.
I began this nail art by painting my thumb and pinky with a coat of NYC's 'Strip me off' peel off base coat. Once this was dry I applied three coats of the Born Pretty Store's Chameleon nail polish in #224. I allowed this to dry and used my Barry M matte top coat. I then used my Bluesky Gel polish and a dotting tool to create a raindrop look – this always looks gorgeous on matte chrome's.
On my remaining nails I applied a coat of OPI's 'Nail Envy'. I followed on with two coats of China Glaze's 'Well Trained' and applied a thin coat of Born Pretty Store's black holographic polish.
Everything else was created with my acrylic paints and brushes. I finished off by applying my Pro-FX top coat to seal in my freehand work.
What do you guys think of my ladybird manicure evolution? Have you had ladybird nails before?
Have yourself a fantastic day! Thank you so much for visiting, don't forget to come say hi in the comments :D I'll catch you again onWednesday!
