I decided to create a playful manicure featuring topsy turvy lady bugs. There is no way not to feel cheerful looking at such embellishments.
The base color is BB Couture Sex on the Beach. The lady bugs were stamped in black Konad special polish from plate M30. I placed gunmetal grey spheres from Bundle Monster on each of the dots. The color pulled just a touch with topcoat. The spheres pick up the color of the glitter and give the lady bugs added dimension.
While taking pictures of the peppers, I was distracted by a tiny rustle about two feet away.
A vole! This little creature was so very curious. I took the photo from about 8 inches away using the macro function. He even modeled with his paw up. So sweet!
Sex on the Beach is a sheer red jelly polish packed with multi-hued glitter. The color makes me think of strawberry juice. The red has a faintly pinkish tint that calls to mind a summer fruit bowl. I feel this red is distinct enough to warrant a purchase.
This polish can be worn in different ways. It looks pretty and glassy at two coats with a hint of visible nail line. Three would suffice for most ladies. I stopped painting at four coats, which made the color almost opaque. This polish dries fast. Whatever you decide is the best color saturation for your nails, this shade will still offer easy application.
This manicure induces happiness. There is nothing quite like sparkly lady bugs to add a bit of whimsy to your day.
