So this particular manicure has a bit of a story behind it. I've been making it my mission lately to exercise more and to help me make more progress I've been seeing a great personal trainer. He's so good, he actually takes an interest in my nails and helps me brainstorm ideas. His suggestions last night were E.T., angry birds, city skyline and pandas. That's dedication for you. Anyway, I had to go with pandas so time for more questionable painting skill displays!
To start, two coats of Nicole by OPI "Baby" Blue from the Justin Bieber collection. Oh how I hate myself for that, but it was on sale and a nice sky blue, so lalalala totes not Justin Bieber. Next, I painted the head and body of the bear with white acrylic paints, followed by the face, limbs and bamboo. And the sun. It came out reasonably cute but I think I prefer my giraffe nails at this point. It's practice!
The Verdict: Cute idea, needs more practice. Also, if you're looking for a great personal trainer in Toronto who does an excellent impression of caring about nail polish, his name is Benjamin Paley and you can find more information here.
I have six submissions so far for guest posts but I need MOAR!! See here if you'd like to help me out :D
