Good morning polished world and happy Sunday! I can't believe it is already Sunday. Time is speeding up it seems. At least it has been gorgeous outside! The daffodils are blooming, the birds are chirping. I honestly have nothing to complain about. Even if it is going to rain today, it's not snow. So I can be a happy happy girl.
Today I am sharing a manicure with you that I did a few weeks ago. It is inspired by this adorable panda manicure by Did My Nails. I have seen plenty of panda manicures over the years, but none as cute as this one. Dots, little pandas holding hearts, and blue....seriously, it's the perfect combination.
Let's take a look!
- China Glaze - Capacity to See Beyond
- OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls
- Black Acrylic
Aren't the little pandas adorable? If I had to change anything about this manicure, it would have been to be a little neater around the eyes. I think my little guy looked a little drunk or sad. Regardless he was cute.
To get the look, I started off with a base coat of My Boyfriend Scales Walls. Dear OPI, please bring this polish back ASAP. I only have two back ups left. Once my base was dry, I used my dotting tool to add all the little black details with the acrylic paint. I feel like I have more control using my smallest dotting tool versus using my paint brush when it comes to adding details like this. I had more control over the size of the circles and the shapes of the arm.
Capacity to See Beyond is a gorgeous blue and perfect for this manicure. I'm so happy I purchased a back up of this polish when it was out. Sure, I went to about 3 different Sally Beauty stores to find it, but I now have it and that is all that matters!
What do you think? Like the little panda? Don't you think the little heart is adorable?
Until next time, <3.
