Ladybug Nail Tutorial

Spring is here so it's the perfect time for me to try doing ladybug nails, and sharing with all of you how I did it. This nail design was very simple to do, and I really like how they turned out.

Things you'll need: Black, red, and white nail polish. Base and top coat. Tooth picks, or dotting tool. Thin nail art brush. Piece of paper. (If you don't have a dotting tool or nail art brushes, just take your time with a tooth pick and you'll be able to get a similar effect. Try cutting the tooth pick in half for larger dots.)

Nail polish used in this tutorial: Finger Paints: Primary Color - O.P.I: Alpine Snow - Essence: #21



Step 1: Use your favourite base coat to protect your nails, and create a surface for the nail polish to stick to.

Step 2: Do 1 or 2 coats of your favourite shade of red polish, and let dry before carrying on to the next step.



Step 3:  Dot the black polish on a piece of paper and use a very thin brush (or tip of a tooth pick) and take your time making a black line as thin as possible down the center of your nail. Now make two curved lines on either side of the middle line, it will look like this.



Step 4: Now fill in the lines on the end of your nail to make the head of the lady bug. Please refer to this video for demonstration.

Step 5: Put a dot of black polish on a piece of paper and use a dotting tool or tooth pick to make little dots, please refer to the video for demonstration.

Step 6: Put a dot of white polish on a piece of paper and using a dotting tool or tooth pick like the above step, put two little eyes.


Step 7: Use your favourite top coat to seal this cute little design.

Hope you all enjoyed my tutorial. I am enjoying my cute nails! So perfect for spring :)

Thank you so much for stopping by, feel free to ask any questions!

Have a great day,
<3 Jenn
