Do you ever think to yourself when painting a nail design 'how did this pop into my head?' That's exactly what I thought when I was doing this panda design. I genuinely have no idea how I went from 'oh it's probably time for me to do another cat design' to pandas. I'm kind of glad I did though as they are so cute and I adore this green shade from Barry M. It's just a bit random. Maybe it's my old age!
Now if I'm honest with myself I was incredibly impatient in creating this design which means the black lines aren't as smooth as I would have liked. Part of this was me rushing and part of this was my stupid Barry M black pen running wild on the dry polish. Why does it do this?! It's so annoying. You can see a bit in the eyes as well where the black and white shmushed into each other as I didn't wait for them to dry. Naughty Emma. If you want to see a perfectly executed panda design Jo created one a little while back here.
I love this green polish from Barry M. It's called Pole Position* and it works really well with my skin tone. I can imagine it wouldn't look great on everyone but if you're a bit paler like me it's great.
I hope you like these little pandas despite their flaws. I think they're real cute!
