ladybug nails

It’s a bit early for ladybugs to show up , we will have to wait spring time but in the meantime why not to paint them on our nails? It’s very cold outside but that can’t stop us from daydreaming of spring and blue sky and sunny weather!

I painted my thumb and ring finger with a bright green and on my other nails l applied my favourite nail polish, Dior orange psychedelique, a unique coral/red/ strawberry color, and I left my half moons free so that I could outline them in forest green. With a dotting tool l painted five black dots on each nail and then, using a smaller size one, l painted white dots .on my green nails l painted a ladybug and l framed it with black and white dots.

Italian version:

E’ ancora presto perchè le coccinelle si facciano vedere, dobbiamo aspettare la primavera, ma nel frattempo nulla ci vieta di dipingerle sulle nostre unghie! Fuori fa freddo ma noi possiamo sognare ad occhi aperti di cieli azzurri e sole tiepido!

Ho dipinto in verde prato il pollice e l’indice, mentre sulle altre unghie ho applicato il mio smalto preferito, dior orange psychedelique, un colore unico che è un mix fra corallo,rosso, rosa fragola. Ho lasciato le lunette senza smalto , in modo da poterle poi sottolineare con una linea di verde bosco. Con un dotting tool ho dipinto cinque pallini neri su ogni unghia e poi, passando ad una misura più piccola, li ho alternati con pallini bianchi. Sulle unghie verdi ho dipinto una coccinella e l’ho circondata di puntini bianchi e neri.

  2. Oh my gosh, these are so amazing, what a beautiful job you did in capturing the ladybug look! WOW! I usually use a stamper to create dots on my nails but this can be a bit limiting.
