Good morning, readers! I have the third and final new Animal Collection polish from The Nail Junkie to show you today! If you missed my posts last week, below you can find the links to the other 2:
Ladybug is a bright red jelly polish with bigger black matte dot glitters. It is super opaque for a jelly and I was almost able to wear one coat. I’ve done two coats, however, because I wanted more of the black dot glitters. I did place a few of the dots where I wanted them but didn’t have a hard time getting them on the brush at all. The jelly base is on the thicker side to be able to hold the heavier big dot glitters, but this works to it’s advantage and helps with smoothing it out when the nail is dry. I did use one coat of Seche Vite for my photos after I added the nail art and you can see that it’s slightly bumpy in shape still, but it was smooth and you couldn’t feel glitter sticking up.
I was able to do such simple ladybug nail art over the polish once it was dry, it’s perfect for this kind of design! I love that I didn’t even have to make my own dots! I just used a short striping brush for the black and the silver antennae. Then, with 2 sizes of dotting tools, I did the eyes with white and black. (ignore the smear through the eye on my middle finger, I didn’t let them dry long enough I guess grr).
