How to Make Panda Nail Art

This cute panda nail design is easy to make and it will instantly brighten up your day. You only need a few items, and it doesn't take too long to master.

Things You'll Need
Base coat
Dotting tool (2 sizes) (or toothpicks/bobby pins)
White nail polish
Black nail polish
Cotton buds
Nail polish remover
Top coat

Steps

1) Take out your supplies. You don't want to be searching for nail polish with wet nails! To complete this design, see the list or required supplies under "Things You'll Need".

2) Start with a base coat to protect your nails. This will keep your nails shiny and helps the polish to stay on longer.

3) Apply a large circle on the top half of your nails with the white nail polish. Don't worry about messing up - you can clean it with some nail polish remover.

Tip: Be careful to ensure that that the circle dries thoroughly before moving on to the rest of the steps.

4) Use your dotting tool to create two ears with the black nail polish.

5) Add the eyes at the lower half of the large white circle with the black nail polish. Add the nose right beneath the eyes.

6) After the eyes have dried, add two smaller circles with the white nail polish.

Tip: Make sure that everything is dry before proceeding to the next step, otherwise your design might smudge.

7) Apply the top coat after the eyes and nose are completely dry. This will protect your nails and the design from chipping. See the introduction image for the final design.

Tips
If you don't have nail dotters, you can use toothpicks or bobby pins.

Warnings
Always replace lids of nail polish and nail polish remover after use to prevent accidental spilling.

Check the contents of your nail polish at the Skin Deep Cosmetics Database: http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/. Some nail polishes contain toxic ingredients.
