Summer ladybugs

Good morning happy people

I have wanted to do ladybug nail art for a while now but never really quite got around to it until now.  It's such a simple design and what could be a better herald of warmer temps?

My mani is a base of Sally Hansen Insta Dri Rapid Red which did not dry well at all.  The color went on nicely enough but dried with bubbles.  Since I was planning on doing nail art over it anyway, I went ahead and left it; and hopefully it doesn't show too much in these photos.

I let my base dry overnight then this morning I used a black ulta thin sharpie to draw the vertical lines, WnW Black Creme for the french tips and the dots (which I used a dotting tool for).   I let it dry for about a half hour before I top coated it - which apparently was not enough because I still had some smearing of my dots.  I tried to just very lightly glide the brush over my nail without coming in contact with the actual surface of my nail.

Hope you enjoy!
