Lady Bugs and Leaves Nails Did

What. A. Week. Seriously. Let me give you some advice everyone: if your company moves and decides to get a whole bunch of new technology - don't volunteer to be the front man on it. Especially when you find out that the "new" technology is like taking a step back to the stone age from your current "old' technology. Seriously. I thought new tech was supposed to make your life easier/faster. But really its just draining my soul! Needless to say once I get home I basically stuff whatever is in the fridge into my mouth then pass out - BUT today I got off a bit early so I did my nails YAY.

So I got my new Bundle Monster plates in the mail the other day and they're fabulous! I loved this leaf pattern that was on one of them so I started off with a base of Nubar Forest and stamped Nubar Green Tea in the leaf pattern on top. Then I freehanded little lady bugs on them with red and black nail art pens but also used a touch of Zoya Nidhi for a little red sparkle that I won from a twitter contest by Scandalous Ange!

Oh - has anyone else used the Seche ridge filling base coat? I picked some up from Winners of all places for only $3!! And you know what - CHIP CITY! Seriously this base coat is crap. What are you using for base coat? I'm in the market!

So cute!

I've recently started using the Zoya ridge filler and it's been wearing like iron.

Wow, I love that you used the leaf print as a background. Very creative!

I'm loving Barielle Natural Nail Camouflage, which I get at Marshalls/TJ Maxx for +/- $4. I also really like Gelous, a base that's available at Sally Beauty. Both work as mild ridge fillers and really improve lasting power of manis. HTH!

This reminds me of a card game I used to have when I was little. It involved ladybird cards and dice, but I can't remember the rules apart from it was good to have a 6! So cute!

You've not only impressed me, but my daughters too! I love the lady bugs!

I'm really fond of using Orly Ridge Filler and then Orly Bonder as my base coats. I've also had good luck with Barielle Camoflauge, and the Nubar Base Coat.
