Panda Nail Art

The last nail art that I blogged about on munch and makeup was the strawberry and watermelon nail art. I wanted to try painting pandas on my nails (who doesn’t like pandas?!) and especially bought some white nail polish to do so.

The nail polishes that I used were No.7 stay perfect clear base/finishing polish, Missguided misbehave pink, Sinful confession white and Models own nail art pen.

Unfortunately the nib of my Models own nail art pen decided to stop working after the first panda that I did on my thumb, so I had to use the brush instead – hence the pandas look a bit furry!

I started off by painting their white faces, once dried; I then painted their black ears, black eyes and noses. Once they dried I put tiny white dots on their eyes to make their eyeballs, finishing off with a layer of clear nail polish.

I also used a light pink colour as the background, which I avoided at the beginning as I thought I might need to do a lot of correcting, but the pandas were actually quite easy to do!


Missguided Nail Polish

I picked up a free Missguided nail polish in each of Cosmopolitan magazine’s September and October issues. The colours I got were Missbehave (light pink) and Misstaken (orange) and are worth £5.00 each.

So far, I’ve only tried the Missbehave polish, which is the colour on my nails in the picture below.

I just needed two coats of the polish to get the same shade as the colour in the bottle, but I used three coats (just to see how much of a difference it made!). The polish applies on well and leaves a nice gloss, but it doesn’t dry superfast, but it’s still faster than some of the nail polishes I’ve bought in the past.

I would definitely buy other Missguided nail polishes, but looking at their website, there isn’t that much of a selection to choose from. Hopefully there’ll be more soon!

Have you tried any of Missguided’s freebies? Or have you bought any of their beauty products?
