Panda Nail Art


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!




Colors Used:
  • 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.
