To me, black and white can be kind of boring. Think about it, what things are black and white....dice, checker board.....meh. Okay, a checkerboard does look really cool on a nail, I've done it before, but I just was not feeling it for this challenge.
So me, the crazy Alaina who is never happy with a simple manicure, got to thinking "How could I turn black and white into something less boring?" The lightbulb went off, and I realized I could do an animal manicure!!! My choices were zebras or pandas....guess which cute option won.
Let's take a look.
- Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
- Sinful Colors - Black on Black
Cute right? I took inspiration from Google Images where I searched "Panda Nail Art." I believe cutepolish also did this design because one of the pictures looked like her nails. If you would have told me a year ago that I could recognize someone by looking at their nail pictures online, I would have thought you were crazy. Today though, I see someone's nails and can immediately identify the owner. *hangs head in shame*
To get these lil guys, with a paint brush, I painted arches onto the nails which were going to have panda heads. Once the arches were there, I used the bottles brush to fill in the tip of the nail from the arch. When dried, I used my dotting tool to add the ears, eyes, and nose! On the ring finger, I painted on two coats of white, and with the dotting tool added some lil paw prints!
I love animal manicures. Seriously, who could hate them! What's your favorite animal manicure? Have you ever done pandas?
As a reminder, this is the challenge....and don't forget to check out the other lovely ladies!
