Busy Bees


I spent all day thinking about how to do some cute bee nails, and eventually settled on lots of little bees. My first attempt failed massively as I did them too small and the outlines all just merged together. Take two was better, but there is still a lot of room for improvement - like the fact that bees don't have yellow faces!

This mani took a little while as it was fiddly with a nail pen, but there's actually only a few steps. I started with a base of O.P.I - Put A Coat On! then added blobs of Maybelline - Electric Yellow. Once dry I outlined the yellow blobs and added stripes, wings and eyes, all with a black nail art pen. There was a bit too much white space between the bees, so I added some random black dots around to break it up a bit. 

This pattern turned out so cute, it reminds me of baby clothes or linen! Perfect fun mani for summer, maybe it will even scare the real bees off!

Love,
