Zoya Rekha, Zoya Raven, Sonnetarium Samurai Princess - ladybug party!

My daughter's 4th birthday was last week. Her theme was ladybugs. I wanted to coordinate, without trying to experiment with nail art whilst busy making centerpieces and wrapping presents. I have been wanting to use Samurai Princess for a while now but somehow, I wanted to wear it over so many things - that I never wore it at all. Please tell me this happens to you? LOL!

So here's my adult ladybug themed mani - 2 coats of Zoya Rekha and Zoya Raven with 1 coat of Sonnetarium's Samurai Princess. This polish is one of the easiest glitter topcoats I have ever used. The glitter is very dense and I did not have to fish for glitter or dab and smooth, etc. I added a little here and there where my brush strokes were not perfect and there was maybe a need for more white on the black nails, etc. - but I think that had more to do with the base color than the SP.

Also, if you can handle feet pics (sorry, I know some just can't) - I did manage to do a very simple ladybug on my big toes. Again, same colors - no SP, and China Glaze Ruby Pumps for some shimmer. I just painted a straight line using a skinny art brush, then dotting tools for dots. I also used a big dotting tool to dot the eyes and drag a smile on with the white (Zoya Snow White).

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We had a blast at the party! I even rocked some red lipstick, and received a lot of compliments. Here's to a great week going forward, and more posts this week than the last few!

  2. So cute! I love the big toe lady bug. I tried to take a foot pic once. It was a disaster.
