Bumble Bee Nail Art

I am thankful that the inspiration for this mani came to me fairly quickly, because yesterday the sink decided it wanted to back up and we spent part of the day watching it to scoop out the water that came up and dump to keep the sink from overflowing and another chunk of the day waiting for the plumber to unclog the sink. Nice on Mother’s Day right? We ended up going to dinner late, and I wasn’t able to get time to do my mani until about 9:30 last night. Oy!

I wanted to do something summery, and when I was looking at my polishes Spa Ritual Enlightened Soul jumped out at me. I love the bright yellow for summer, and then it got me to thinking about bees. I didn’t want to do the bees with the yellow, I wanted my nails yellow, so I thought I would go with bumble bees because they would coordinate with the yellow. I love how my fat little bees turned out. I think next time I might do an accent nail with a flower instead of a bee to fit into the theme. The design itself was done with acrylic paints and a brush. They were surprisingly easy to do!

Have you ever put bees on your nails? What is your favorite summer nail art?

    This is adorable. There is actually a major plight for bees happening right now because honey bees are in massive decline. It’s pretty interesting if you are into that sort of stuff.
