ASBMF Challenge Day 2: Ladybugs

Its Day 2 of the challenge!!
I have seen many different ladybug designs and I think I've mixed a couple up and came up with my end result.  Because I have looked at so many designs I don't remember who belongs to which design.  The ladybug on the leaves I saw somewhere and I can't remember.  If this design belongs to you please let me know so that I can give you credit!! 

I started with 2 coats of Essence Lime Up and Butter London Chancer.

I added a strip down the middle of my ring finger using Sinful Colors Nail Art Time Off.

I added the leaf print using BM19 and Essence High Spirits.

I taped off my ring finger and added my ladybug head using Time Off.

Using my dotting tools I added the spots and eyes using Time Off and Sinful Colors Nail Art Bad Chick.

I added my ladybugs to the leaves using BM13, OPI Quarter of A Cent-Cherry and Time Off.  I also went back and touched up the antenna.

Topped off with 3 coats of NYC.

  11. these are very cute! i like seeing the process. I have yet to buy a butter polish. i already feel like the 8 dollars i spend on a bottle is a lot. Is Butter really worth the 14 bucks a bottle? opinions, anyone?

    1. There are a lot of people that are not satisfied with BL but I love them! Others say the chip too easily, however I've never had that. BL's one of my favorite polishes!
