Nail Art: Peeping Panda

This will probably the shortest post in this entire blog. And, it will only have a single photo. Believe me, only 1 picture is needed.

So where to begin. I met a Traveling Panda a few months back in a blogging summit. He is a Pinoy travel blogger who believes he resembles a panda because of his eyes. When he found out I blog about nails, particularly nail art, he has since requested for one. I told him I already did a panda nail art when I was still starting and I was not really sure I wanted to remake it. I felt I've outgrown "cartoony" nail designs. But last night, I decided to challenge myself to paint a panda without looking so much like a cartoon. Let me leave the judging to you whether or not I achieved that.

I named this freehand nail design the "Peeping Panda".

Peeping Panda Nail Art Design

This is a fairly simple design with only one accent nail on my left hand. I painted all the other nails in plain black. I entertained the idea of adding a design on the rest of the nails but it eluded me almost instantly. I figured the panda will not take center stage as I intended. Or ... you can probably just say that I was just lazy. Infringement cases are stressful!

I painted the panda using black acrylic paint and a detailing nail art brush. I was not particular about clear lines as I was aiming for a more furry look so that it will not appear too much of a cartoon. I also used the entire nail and proceeded with the idea of a panda trying to peep through my nail.
