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.

Nail polishes

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!

Attempting Flowery Nail Art

After attempting Strawberry and Watermelon Nails, I thought I would try something flowery.

However, it didn’t really work! Here are the nail polishes I used –

And here’s how my attempt of flowery nails turned out –

I used a pale colour as a base, then dotted a dark pink colour randomly on my nails as the flower, used the red to try and make petals and dashed the green nail polish on each side of my ‘flowers’ to make the leaves.

I would definitely try this again, but use a darker green to make the leaves look more like leaves!
