Step 2: Getting Started

Picture of Getting Started

Paint your whole nail red, you may need to use multiple coats. I used 3.

Step 3: Head

Use the black and paint a black stripe, similar to a thick french tip. This will be the lady bug's head! (The pinky toe was extra challenging!)

Step 4: Stripes

Paint a vertical black stripe in the middle of your nail.

Step 5: Dots, Dots, Dots!

Take the white and paint two white dots on the head. These are the eyes. Then paint black dots on the remaining red part. When the white dries, paint black dots in the center of the white dots. These are the pupils! 

Step 6: Voila!

Of course, wait 30 minutes before applying a top coat! You can get LA Colors top coat for $1 at Dollar Tree! Top coat is necessary for nail art, because it preserves your design and keeps it from chipping away! These next few pictures are the ending product (without touching up - I did these at 11 at night!) The last two pictures are the lady bug designs on finger nails! I enjoy painting the fingernails better, because there's more room to paint! Please rate and add comments- It'd really make my day! Like what you see? Please subscribe! There are plenty more designs to come! Enjoy! :)
