Did someone wish to see handpainted ladybugs? Good thing I included this set. Aren’t they lovely and glamorous? The leaves are stamps, though, and you can order them anywhere. Love the base color.
What do you see in those red and black polka dots? Right, you are… they give us some ladybug vibes. Would you like to have these charming hearts and ladybug nail tips as well?
Ooh, love the color of army green in matte on this one. It’s so nice to see as well how the clear polish was neatly applied to those cute ladybugs. You thought it was 3D, huh? Nope, those were handpainted.
Here goes a combination of handpainted and stamps. The polka dots were applied freehand while the ladybugs are stamping plates. It’s also nice to see how red mixes well with peach and glitters.
Green combines well with red, indeed. I’m not sure if the drawings were handpainted or stamped, but they are lovely regardless. Those green crystals also made the whole art astonishing.
All right, who else finds these nails cute and dandy? Looks like both the ant and the bug were shocked when they learned that they will be included in this nail art. They are the perfect duo for cuteness.
I’ve got something here for all the DIY babies. If you want your nails all-natural, but still would like to go with the ladybug trend, you can try copying this one out. From the base to the dots and the ladybug, these are all freehand. It makes for a unique ring finger nail design.
Do you want your nails in different colors? Here is an inspiration. I have to admit that I can’t pick a favorite since they all look too awesome to just choose one. I’ll just settle to saying that I love how they are all in ombre.
Care for some leaves in the zoomed-in edition? The leaves are actually frog stickers peeled off. Creative, I know. The ladybugs are hand-drawn to match the stickers. Artistic, indeed.
Did you know that ladybugs are not actually bugs? They are beetles; hence, the other name is lady beetles. I think you’re going to like this lady beetle we have in neon pink nails. I wonder if the leaf was hand-drawn, though.
Oh, it’s raining ladybugs on these nails. Don’t get me wrong as I love the design and color, but I think the ladybugs overpowered the presence of glitters on the green base. They could have shimmered more brightly if there were less.
How about some bright red polish and closed-up ladybugs? The shape of her nails could pass as a ladybug’s back, anyway. Do you have almond-shaped nails, too?
Here is a nail art that is simple yet flavorful. It’s not like the fabulous long ones you encounter, but it surely got the style. And, I think the silver foils and crystal gems added to the design’s radiance.
Ladybugs in blue polish are so posh. Don’t you agree? Also, how can these artists be so talented in painting?! These nails are all-natural, and I am having a hard time believing that.
Ladybug stamps on green glittered polish, everyone. She only used one type of green polish here so I guess the glitter and two-way color effect is on the polish itself. The red one looks splendid, too, with the polka dots and all.
French tips will never go out of style. These tips took half of her nails, but I guess that’s all right since they look gorgeous anyway.
Now, isn’t this set so superb and terrific?! I mean, just look at all the designs from thumb to pinky, they are all wonderfully and cleanly made. I’ll make sure to find these decals, and the exact blue polish the artist used. It makes a great combination with this bee nail design.
Are you looking for something white, posh, and chic? Say no more, I got what you need. Here’s a blue ladybug in a clean white, matte base that looks so relaxing to the eyes. Match them with white tips to complete the set.
Whoa. Now, these bugs look like they are having fun. I say so because they are bright, funky, and colorful. I love the neon colors the artist used, these nails look so playful.
These stamps are really pretty. Together with their baby ladybug, they can make anyone’s nails stand out.
Another inspiration for your ladybug-inspired french tips yearning. I love how they look so innocent and pure, it’s probably because of the clear polish and the natural nails.
Coccinellidae… sorry. I just wanted to share with you a science trivia. That is the scientific name of ladybugs. Aren’t these tiny ladybugs in white, clean polish so adorable? They perfectly match the black polka dot design.
Tulip nails and ladybug nails rolled into one, ladies. I love how the tulips were applied, I wonder if they are handpainted or not. Also, that nude color base is balancing out the colors altogether.
Who else is feeling cartoon vibes from this ladybug? Anyway, I love everything about these nails… matte white and red polish, ladybug and leaf stamps, and the wonderful effects of the plotted black inks that look like fine, dark sand.
I can’t see them clearly, but I think the red polka dots have black spots overlaid. The artist wanted to do a ladybug-inspired polka dot nail art, and I guess she got it right. I love how it all turned out.
Colorful and playful, that’s what I thought when I saw these nails. The leaves even look like geometric nail art in their own right. These are all handpainted, and they are clearly natural nails.
I love how the green leaf stamps shimmer under the sunlight. It’s like your nails are undergoing photosynthesis. And, that ladybug stamp seems to be enjoying the sunlight as well.
You might be looking for some other bugs aside from ladybugs. Well, ladybugs aren’t real bugs anyway. Here’s a nail art you can imitate. The gang is complete and they are just too cute to handle.
These lady beetles seem to be enjoying their food. I must say that the combination of white and blue really is something. Oh, and it’s nice to see both matte and glossy finish on the same nail art. These nails are so cool.
How about these ladybugs that come in a variety of colors? I especially like the yellow one, it looks so bright and beautiful. She also used a nice base color, I think it thoroughly balances out the brightness of all the other colors.
Bright and colorful… these ladybugs surely know how to have fun. I really like how she used warm colors on one hand and cool colors on the other. It’s like having a touch of both hot and cold weather in one set.
Ladybugs, oh ladybugs! Where can I find those stamps? The white marble polish and blue-green leaves are a perfect tandem. And, of course, the ladybug add-ons made the whole set an all-star!
Ok, no lies. I particularly included this set because I am in love with that honey-mustard base color. It looks so cute and dandy with the ladybug stamps.
How about a ladybug close-up with a twist of Japanese nail art? You like that, don’t you? The zoomed-in flower on her index finger is a blast, I thought they were mere abstract lines.
Classic pink and red combination for your love-inspired ladybug nails. I must say that those french tips are rocking it. They perfectly complement the solid glitters on the index and pinky fingers.
Or would you like white tips instead? You can do so with this ladybug nail inspiration. Pink goes well with white, too. Add a bit of hearts that shine and your nails will look more stunning.
Ah, I love how she used the gradients of pink in these nails… from darkest to lightest. Which shade of pink do you like best? Mine would be the old rose on her pointing finger. And it’s even glittered!
Black and red are the colors of boldness and fearlessness. If you want something elegant and daring at the same time, you might want to imitate these nails here.
A single ladybug that seems to emanate a lot of force… I guess it’s because her wings are widely spread. I love these red matte nails.
How cute is that big ladybug looking at the other small ladybugs? Her eyes seem so curious. Maybe he also wants to eat? Anyway, you should try these leaf stamps and handpainted ladybugs.
A ladybug-inspired nail doesn’t need to have a ladybug, you know that. Here’s a perfect ‘rock and chic’ inspiration for all our rockstars.
Ladybugs in pastel colors look great, too, don’t they? These are press-on nails so it’s actually very easy to apply them. No need to reserve a slot at the nail salon.
Here’s a design for those who love gardening. Do you often find ladybugs in your garden? By the way, that dandelion on her index fingernail looks so magical. Make a wish!
Handpainted purple ladybugs, gel polish on natural nails, and some silver glitters for complete perfection. Here’s a DIY idea if you don’t have time to go to the salon.
Ooh, those red glitter french tips look so swag, and those designs on her middle and ring fingernail look so special. But it wouldn’t be complete without the ladybug on her thumbnail, of course.
Bees and ladybugs are garden friends. Here’s something you can have on your nails if you love both insects.
Ah, I picked these nails because I find them so elegant and ladylike. The whole set is so simple yet it gives off a wonderful radiance.
Stickers and stamps, y’all. Look at how funny and cute those ladybugs are. Their eyes got me wondering what could it be that they are probably looking at.
Ladybugs and sunflower nails on a red and black matte polish look so awesome.
Oh, I found these, and I thought I should include them. I am definitely adding this design to my list. Sometimes, I like it sweet and cool.
Abstract lines that look like barb wires will always be my thing. It’s always a lovely sight to see red and yellow together, too. These nails are my favorite in this post, to be honest.
