China Glaze Hey Sailor and a Lady Bug

I don't do nail art often. It doesn't really even cross my mind a lot. But sometimes I get a bug for some nail art. Do you see what I did there ;)

China Glaze Hey Sailor from the Anchors Away Collection Spring 2011. This red is, simply put, amazing. I mean it's classic red at it's finest. I adore this color. I wish I had gotten the full size instead of the mini set. *sigh* Maybe there's a dupe. I'll have to research that soon. Before I use it up! For the accent nail I used Zoya Kimmy from the Summer Collection 2011, Orly Liquid Vinyl from Orly's core collection and Wet N Wild French White. All four had great formula and super application. I used two coats of Hey Sailor and Kimmy. One coat of each Liquid Vinyl and French White. To make the dots and eyes I used my dotting tools and free handed the black line down the center. I used tape to make the funky french black tip. The lady bug was super simple but looks adorable. I enjoyed doing it and ended up wearing it 4 days!!! That might be a record for me. I never wear anything that long unless I am traveling out of town since I rarely do my nails away from home. So, yea, I loved this mani :) Do you like nail art? Do you wear an accent nail color?
