Freehand Gel & Holographic Foil Panda Nail Art

Allo polish Pals!
How are you all doing today? I hope your week has been going smoothly so far?

Today I have another weekly challenge manicure from Tiny Canvas . This week our theme was Panda's as the 16th of March is Panda day. I've not done Panda nail art since 2015, you can see my old panda nail art here.

If you are wondering what Tiny Canvas is it is a closed nail art group over on Facebook, its a wonderful nail community run by Dani and currently has over 7,000 members. It's also where I help out as a moderator. Other lovely things about Tiny Canvas would be how friendly and warm the members are, how helpful and kind all the other moderators and admin are. There are also the weekly challenges as I have mentioned, birthday draws and many of the members can offer so much help with nail art, I've learnt rather a lot.

For this manicure I actually used gel polish – look, I'm learning new stuff! 2017, Lets be brave!
I started of course with my Mezmris Nail Lacquer base coat and once dry applied two coats of Essence's 'Rebel at heart'. I then applied a light coat of Barry M's 'Diamond Glitter' and again waited for this to dry.

Next I applied a layer of nail foil glue and once the white glue had dried transparent I added my leafy holo foil on top.

The final few steps where to apply BlueSky gel top coat on top, cure it under my lamp and remove the tacky layer. I then created my nail art on top (not the wisest idea to paint directly onto gel!) and sealed it all in with my Pro-FX top coat.
I began with two coats

Which Panda nail art do you prefer, this one or my one from 2015? Have you had panda nails before?

Have a beautiful day my friends, Thank you for visiting. I'll catch you again on Saturday!


  1. I'm not going to choose... your 2015 pandas look adorable and your 2016 pandas are beautiful. It's like the 2015 ones have matured to the 2016 ones :)

  2. Wow, this looks great! I've tried various nail polishes from essence and they were ok, but nohing with glitter. I like glitter very much, I will try some of these ones.
    Wish you a beautiful evening.
