The Digit-al Dozen does Rainforest - Panda Nails

Hey there!  So when I was thinking up rainforest nail ideas for this month's Digit-al Dozen theme I thought that there must be rainforests all over the world that we don't think about as such.  Which somehow made me think of pandas which do indeed live in rainforests - rainforests with lots of bamboo to help them get all rolly polly and adorable.  And, since there's so much green in this mani it's also my first Nail Challenge Collaborative mani for this month since the May theme is just Green (which works very well with the rainforest theme).

The base for this is ILNP's Highline, a olive green Ultra Chrome.  There's other colors in the shift but to me it's mainly green.

After that all the stamping came from a single plate (how handy is that?!) - Winstonia W407.  The bamboo was stamped first with Mundo de Unas Grinch, for even more green.

Over that I used the cutesy pandas with the advanced stamping technique and Mundo de Unas Black and White.  There's a bunch of other pandas on this plate but I tried to avoid the ones playing with things since I didn't think we'd actually find balls and balloons in the rainforest.

So that's the last of my rainforest animals for the week.  Tomorrow I'll have a combination of green, rainforest AND delicate print.  That's a 3-for-1 mani....wooohoo!  In the links below we'll be able to see the rest of the DD ladies rainforest manis today and some more green nails for the Nail Challenge Collaborative.  

'Til next time...
