ASBMF #2: Lady Bugs

Today I have the 2nd challenge from the April Showers Bring May Flowers Challenge, Lady Bugs.  Yet another nail art task I have yet to try.  You are seeing my first attempt.  It's ok.  Not great, but I am happy enough with it to wear it for the rest of the day :)
The process I used was this:
1.  Red french tip (2 coats with sticker guides)
2.  All red accent finger
3.  Holo top coat over all red polish (2 coats)
4.  Stripe down center of accent finger
5.  Black dots on all red polish
6.  Black accent over french tips (by hand)
7.  Top coat over all nails
8.  Added black french tip on accent finger
9.  Added eyes to my lady bug
10.  Top coat over accent nail

Seems like a lot of work.  It kind of was.  I think it will go faster if I try this design again.  There are a couple things I would change, like adding the spots after doing the black tip on the accent nail.  I would also pay more attention to the placement of the eyes.  She looks a little cross eyed LOL  You learn by doing, right?  What are your thoughts on this design?

Base Coat:  Seche Rebuild
Red French/Accent Nail:  Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby
Holo Top Coat:  Made by Me :)
Black:  L.A. Colors Striper
