Panda Nail Art Tutorial

Products Needed:

  • Base coat (optional)
  • Skin color nail polish
  • White nail polish
  • Black nail polish
  • Glitter nail polish
  • Transparent nail polish
  • 2 toothpicks or dotting tools

Stepwise Tutorial:

Step 1:

If you have the habit of using a base coat then use 2 layers of base coat before starting out with the design. Now when the base coat is dried, cover the nails with 2 generous coats of a skin color nail polish like Victoria from Tips and Toes or any other similar nail polish which comes in skin color. This color will help the design to come alive. You can also use a grey color or dirty blue color for the base paint. Do not use very bright colors for the base paint.

Step 2:

Cover the lower half of the nails with the help of a dotting tool or toothpick’s blunt end with white polish. Make the shape something similar to circular or oval. This will ultimately become the head of the panda. Use two to 3 coats of white polish to give it a more opaque formation.

Step 8:

Lastly apply 2 layers of good quality transparent polish to seal in the beautiful design. After the design has been created, use a cotton bud or a piece of cotton stuck on a toothpick dipped into acetone or nail polish remover to clean the stray nail polishes from sides, if any. Additionally you can use nail art bows to make a female panda. If you use nail art ceramic or plastic bows then stick them with nail art glue or transparent polish on the head at one of the ears.
