Ants in the p... p... picnic

Hi girls! One of my best friends came over, we were supposed to have a picnic but the weather was just awful. We put down a blanket in the living room and had our picnic indoors! Perfect climate for it and no bugs ruining our fun! Those bugs were also the inspiration for my nail art.

Gahhh aren't they cute? I tried my very best to make a picnic blanket in the background, not inspired by my own blanket because that''s not pink. I wish it was *sad face*

This design was actually pretty easy to make, all you need is a small brush, a dotting tool and a steady hand. I started with two coats of white, then added pink horizontal and vertical stripes. I took a large dotting tool and added darker pink dots to make it look plaid. I'm sure there's a way to make it look even better but this was easier. The ants are also just dots, with lines drawn as the paws. I used a super small dotting tool dipped in white polish to make the ants look more 3D. The apple and the lemon were fimo slices I had lying around, they were the perfect add-on.
Here's a little close-up of one of my guys (or girls, do ants even have genders?). 

Anyways, bonus points if you got the reference in the title! Thanks for watching (yet again, you must be getting tired of me!) and see you soon!
