Tutorial: Ladybird Trail Nails

A while ago I was looking for some nail inspiration from Instagram when I saw someone had posted a photo of their nails like this but with a bee rather than a lady bird. I didn't want to copy it too much so I swapped the bee for a lady bird and this is how I did it.
Products used were:
AVON Base Coat
17 Lasting Fix Nail Polish in Woo Me
17 Lasting Fix Nail Polish in Caribbean Coral
Model's Own Nail Art Pen in Black

1. I applied my base coat and my base colour, 17's Lasting Fix Nail Polish in Woo Me.
2. Once the above had dried I put a small, thin blob of 17's Lasting Fix Nail Polish in Caribbean Coral on my thumb, trying to be as careful as I could to make a ladybird shape. I managed to smudge it a little but hopefully it isn't too noticeable.
3. Once the coral red had dried I used my nail art pen with the dotting end and very carefully drew a circle round the body and drew on the ladybird details, such as the eyes and spots.
4. At this point my nail art pen exploded everywhere so after getting my mum to help clean me up, I used the dotting tool of my nail art pen and drew on little lines across my nails to look like a trail.
You can use a top coat but I didn't want to risk dragging the nail art colour down so I chose not to use one.
