NAIL ART TUTORIAL: THE CAT’S MEOW

TCM5

If you aren’t one, you know one – crazy cat ladies. Cats – so cute & fluffy and they basically rule the internet. We openly admit our obsession & one of us recently got a Persian himalayan kitten causing things to spiral out of control. Combining our two obsession, today’s tutorial brings the cute creatures to our tips in a more difficult nail art design that we hope our fellow cat ladies & nail polish addicts alike can enjoy!

Step 1: After applying a base coat, paint nails with Zoya – Abigail. This nude is very sheer and works perfectly as a base colour for designs – the unnoticeable nail polish.

Step 2: To begin creating the heads of the cats, paint a semi-circle from the tip of the nail – you can do this with the brush from the bottle to get a full opaque colour. Once the shape of the head is complete, using a nail art brush paint two tiny ears at the top of the circle. We wanted to add a little diversity with are kitties so we changed the coat colours for each nail. For the middle finger, we added darker brown to the tips and nose to look like a himalayan. For the orange coat, we added OPI – Y’all Come Back Ya Hear? over top of Essie – Tart Deco, OPI’s jelly polish created some depth to the coat.

Step 3: Using a dotting tool, dot two white eyes just under the ears of the cat. Then add the eye colour, again we tried to create some variety – blue, green, yellow and brown. When both layers have dried completely, add the last tiny black dot to complete the eyes.

Step 4: Using Sally Hansen – Blush Rush, create little pink noses on all kittens using a dotting tool or small bobby pin. Once the design is dried, seal in the look with a heavy top coat.

We luvz kittehs. You can change this nail art design by having all similar cats, an accent nail kitten or painting your own kitty. Show us your favourite furry nail art friends, whether you’re a cat lover, dog lover, bird lover etc – we’d love to see your designs.

  6. I do agree with all of the tips you have introduced with your article. They are truly truly convincing and will surely function. Nonetheless, the posts are too small for rookies. Could you make sure you extend them a bit from future time? Thanks towards the post.
