Digit-al Dozen: The Lady of the Rainforest

Greetings and Nailutations,

It is Day 2 of the Digit-al Dozen theme: Rainforest.  I decided to do a Ladybug (or Ladybird or Ladybird Beetles or Lady Beetles) mani.  Ladybugs are not just rainforest critters - they are everywhere (for the most part) but they are still adorable, so hence this mani.

Now let's get to the details.

Products Used:
Drip Drop Nail Paint - Miss Dotty, Yoga Pants
Simply Spoiled Beauty - Black nail art pen
Rimmel London - Stiletto Red
SuperChic Lacquer - Marvel Liquid Macro Top Coat
Heather's Hues - Heart Of The Matter

The pointer and middle finger have Miss Dotty as a base.  I used a nail art pen to draw a vertical stripe and a half moon at the edge of the nail along with 2 adorable eyes.  The ring and pinky nails have Stiletto Red along with dots using Yoga Pants.  Everything is topped with Marvel Liquid Macro Top Coat.

And then I had to see what it looks like with Heart Of the Matter - because one must mattify everything.  :)

Fun fact: Ladybugs are helpful insects - they consume plant eating insects (aphids).  So next time you see one, be sure to thank her!

Be sure to check all the amazing manis below from other Digit-al Dozen members!

Happy Polishing,

  1. So cute! It's been a long time since I've done a ladybug manicure, but this makes me want to do one soon!

  2. Cute little critters! I really like how they look matte! :)

  3. Oh, girl! These lady bugs are freaking adorable!!

  4. Sooo cute! I love how you added the tiny glitter to the ladybugs! Adorable!

  5. Aww these are so cute!! I love the little glitters!

  6. Squee! How cute is this? Here's another ladybug-related fun fact: When my sister and I were six, we found our first ladybug and decided to KISS it! I went first and it ended up biting/stinging my lip and I went back inside trying to hide my badly swollen lip. Sis snitched on me and we had a huge fight even as the grown-ups were scolding me for going about kissing insects.

  7. This is sooo cute. I love the little bit of glitter and it's awesome matte

  8. Aw these are the cutest! Can you believe I've never done ladybug nails? Also, we call them Ladybirds :)

  9. Whaaa so cute!!! I think I've done ladybugs once, but it might have been during the pre-blog era, so you're inspiring me to do them again!


Thank you for your comment. :)
