Growing up in America, these adorable red-and-black insects were introduced to me as “ladybugs“.
When I moved back to England however, I discovered they were known as “ladybirds“.
To this day, I have never understood why this difference has come about, however I have settled on calling them “ladyburgs“.
Best of both worlds, I think.
Anyway, I painted some lovely ladyburgs on my nails. Hope you like! :)
