Take Five Red Things


So, I decided to freehand paint all five nails with a red base coat (Nails Inc King Edward Street) and paint on five different designs: heart, ladybird (ladybug, for my American readers), strawberry, apple and postbox using Rio Nail Art pens in black, white, yellow and green.

Here are some close ups:

This is the original

So there’s a certain level of artistic licence, but I’m quite happy with how it turned out
