Spring is near and I simply had to do a funny and sunny manicure. I am really looking forward to the warmer weather and the beautiful colours of blooming flowers and trees.
I started this manicure with two coats of NYX - White to make my yellow pop up even brighter. I then added two layers of catrice - Earnie & Birdy (05). This bright yellow creme polish has a wonderful formula and is very easy to apply due to the flat brush with a rounded tip. It dries quickly and has a glossy finish. For these swatches I did not use a topcoat.
Using a small dotting tool I created a line across my nails with essence - the black cat. With a fine nailart brush I painted a bee shape on my indexfinger, added wings and srtipes and filled the wings with white. A small white dot with a little black one make the eye. You could use topcoat to seal your design in. I did not because I used a matte black polish and liked the way it looked on the glossy yellow.
To have the flowers with me all the time I added some dotted red flowers with an orange center to my nails. Unfortunately they never turn out the way I like, but that's okay. :-)
Here is what I used: plus a dotting tool and a fine nail art brush.

I think they are totally cute! And pretty simple to do actually. If you want me to do a tutorial, let me know!
How do you like my little bee design?
