Cute Panda Nail Art

A little bit more than five years ago I did my first panda manicure.
With it being Week 10 in the quarter system here at UCSC, I needed some cute little animal nails, so I thought that I would redo one of my first manicures. It's always fun to go back and see how much you have grown as an artist. One thing is for sure, I know a bit more about how to take pictures of my nails in a professional sense.

Floral Print and Holo Glitter

I've always wanted to try out the technique of painting flowers where you dip your brush into two different colors and then paint on flower petals in a gradient style; so I thought I would try it out this week. I needed this manicure to be study enough to endure the traveling that I will be doing this week for the holidays so thats where the holo glitter nails came into play. Plus, who doesn't like some glitter nails?!? I added in some dainty little green leaves and some black and yellow dots to the center of each flower. Super easy manicure, despite the complicated looking end result.

Monsters University Nail Art

This week, Merrill College's themed college night is Monsters University, so I thought it would be topic for me to paint my nails in theme as well. Pretty simple designs on each nail, drawing reference from the two main characters as well as some minor characters along the way.

Neon Gradient Manicure

Just a simple neon gradient kind of week.

I started off with a white base color and then sponged on a colorful gradient across all of my fingernails. I added on some white polka dots and finished everything off with a glossy top coats.
