I did an airbrushed base which should resemble a leaf :rolleyes: with clear acrylics drops on. On top of that i did a ladybird or ladybug ¨*i have no clue what the right word is* it's acrylic.

You like or not so much? :lol:

I am only a wannabe nail tech but wanted to say that I think this is amazing! The ladybird looks so real - I would love to be able to do this someday.

Thx,

it's actually not hard to do...seriously.

It,s basically a coloured oval drop of acrylic that i colored and then applied it on the nail tip.

Ladybugs over here

and OMG thats amazing I love it

*side note* I actually found a ladybug in the house last week, news worthy as a few years ago we had ariel spraying done for a particular moth, we lost alot of bugs :( (which authorities said in the begining this spray will only target the moth and moth only all other 'bugs' are safe) I think the spraying was about 4-5 years ago now and its amazing the bug life is sllloooooowly coming back.
