Ladyburg nails!

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! :)

    So cute! And you did it yourself. I’m amazed. Nail art is difficult, for me at least.

    I LOVE this!

    I recently bought Nail Art pens (60 of them) and couldn’t wait for them to arrive, as Blogging; I come across lots of designs that I would like to try out on my nails.

    However, since receiving them; I just haven’t got round to doing them and couldn’t even decide on a pattern to do!

    This has just given me an idea, so thanks for the post!! :-)

    Love your blog posts :-)

    Oh these are so adorable. Lady bugs are a sign of good luck, I think. Either way they’re so cute.
