We decided to create a manicure that was inspired by the ladybug’s classic “outfit”, polka dots! Check out how we mimic some of our favorite color combos from species in our ladybug pin collection.
Start off by painting your nails with a base clear coat, followed by a layer of the base color. After these layers are completely dry, paint the polka dots with a pin (we found a pinback works best although you can experiment with different tools). You also may need to do some tests on a piece of paper before you apply it directly to your nails.
And Voila…You now have a ladybug inspired manicure!
Here are the ladybug species names that inspired the look for each fingernail as seen in these photos:
Thumb: Seven-spotted Lady Beetle
Index: Montezuma Lady Beetle
Middle: Fifteen-spotted Lady Beetle
Ring: Cream-spotted Lady Beetle
Pinky: Two-spotted Lady Beetle
