With the smaller brush paint a line across the top of the nail with the black. This should be about one fourth of the way down the nail. Fill in this section with the black nail polish.
Paint down the center of the nail from the black area that you just painted and try to flair it out to make it look like wings of your lady bug.
Paint black dots on the red wings that you just created for your nail art design. Finish up with two white spots on the top black that is the head to represent the eyes.
Nail Art Design: M & Ms

Paint each finger on one hand a different nail polish. You can use any shades that you have on hand. However if you want to be very M & M, you will want to go with red, orange, blue, green, and yellow.
Create eyes for each of your M & M nail art using the black and white polishes. You can outline the eyes in black and use the white to highlight. You will also want to create different smiles with the black on each character.

Paint all your nails a light blue to mimic the color of the sky. You can in truth use any color for a background if blue is not really your thing.
On your thumb paint a diamond. You can use any colors that you want and even make designs on the kite itself. Outline the final image in black to make it stand out.
