April Showers bring May Flowers Challenge #2-Ladybugs


As many of you know, I am signed up to do two challenges simultaneously.  The second doesn't begin until April 14th with Purple Glitters.  The one in the picture above was created by Hannah at Polished Prisms.  She, along with the following nail artists are participating......

 Amanda from Mandy's Polish
Heidi from DIY Polish & More!
Katee from A Girl and Her Polish
Charlotte from Charlotte's Nails
Tess from Football and Fingernails
Karine at Karinea0a
Victoria from Manicurator
Ashley from One Nail To Another
Dani from Rustic Comfort
Amanda from Counting Down to Bliss
Kayono from Neues vom Kellerkind
 Please go and check them out.  They have done some pretty cool designs already. The thing I love about this challenge is that ou can go at your own pace, which works for my schedule.

OK, moving on to #2 on the challenge list....ladybugs.  At first I thought ladybug(s) meaning more than one but I just wasn't sure how to have that translate into a whole bunch.  Should it be on a leaf?  In the grass?  Decisions.....decisions.  I ended up with the spots and added one accent nail.



The red, which was Color Club looked really deep red in the bottle but with the white base coat, it really brightened it up and made it quite tangy.



You can sort of see the difference in this last picture.  Not at all my style.  It is fun to try something different and, amazingly, I liked it so much and was really surprised.  Got quite a few compliments.

    1. Thanks. Mine would be short without the help of gel polish. I always keep a base and top coat on. Without it, the tips snap right off :(

    1. I think it stands out too but I feel like the white makes my nails look stubby.
