Cute cat nail art that will make you smile all of the time :)
I LOVE LOVE LOVE these cat nails! They make people smile, and they're SUPER cute, I get compliments on them and comments all of the time. I hope you like them as much as I do. I did these on fake nails because I just... Fail at using my left hand. But if you are amazingly talented this would work just as well straight on your nails. I hope you love them :):)

  • How to paint an animal nail. Cat Nails - Step 1
    Step 1

    Paint the nail completely black, this might take a few coats, it took me 2 or 3.

    Step 2

    Now once the nail is completely dry put a drop of white nail polish on a piece of paper, and use a toothpick in a stippling motion to make little cat ears. Again MAKE SURE THE NAIL IS COMPLETELY DRY BEFORE, otherwise it will make a line or indent in the nail.. (And nobody likes that)

  • How to paint an animal nail. Cat Nails - Step 3
    Step 3

    Now use the same technique to make little whiskers and a pink triangle nose.. SO CUTE! Now is ALSO when you apply a top coat, wait until it is completely dry to do the next step.

  • How to paint an animal nail. Cat Nails - Step 4
    Step 4

    Ok... Now comes the fun part, apply the nail gems up to where the eyes should be. I like using Green and Yellow because that's the color of cats eyes, but it's up to you. Follow the instructions on your nail gems package.

  • How to paint an animal nail. Cat Nails - Step 5
    Step 5

    Now take your ADORABLE New nails and show them off all around town! It's especcially fun to pretend that they are real cats, just... Trust me :)
