1. Gather your things for the panda nail art
Firstly, you need various things before you can start to begin your nail art. You need nail paints in flesh tone, black and white. You would also need dotting tools like toothpicks. Base coat is optional, but you can keep it handy.

2. Clean your nails before starting to paint
For maintaining your manicured nails, it is a requirement that you polish and clean your nails prior to applying any nail paint. We often make the mistake of cleaning nails with soap, nail polish remover or acetone that ruins the natural texture of our nails. Instead, use a nail brush made of nylon.

3. Layer your nails with a base coat
The third step isn’t a must to be done but you can apply a base coat if you wish to. Start with applying one layer on all the nails. Then let the nails dry up. Then, begin the second coating. Many women have the habit of applying base coat as it helps maintain the nail paint’s texture and prevents it from chipping off fast.

4. Apply skin color paint on your nails
After your nails coated with base paint have dried up, you can start applying skin toned paint on them. Start with one layer and then finishing off with another coat. There are endless options to choose like Tips and Toes. Skin colored polish helps enliven the design and makes it look glamorous too. There are other alternatives to using skin paints like grey and dull tones.

5. Make a circular shape towards the lower portion of the nails and fill them up with white paint
The fifth step is the beginning of attaining cute panda nails wherein you need to use your toothpicks to fill up the circular shapes as seen below. For making these shapes, you can use a fine brush and then fill up the inner portions by dipping the stubby end of the toothpick in white nail polish. The shapes can be made on nails as required by you and would resemble a panda’s head. Layer with three coats of nail polish.
