If you look at my cats, you would notice I'm partial to mostly black cats.
I know the stigma or superstitions with black cats but they are super cute and affectionate.
Maybe I was a witch in a past life...
Here is a great way to have the black cat but not the bad luck :)
I have been wanting to try any kind of cat nail design for awhile now but never got around to it.
I liked this one so much it stayed on my nails for 2 weeks - I'm usually changing my polish at least once a week.
The tool I used was... <drum roll>... a toothpick!
I have used a toothpick as my nail art tool for every one of the nail design in my Halloween series.
It is such a handy tool!
I used the black cat on 2 accent nails but feel free to apply to all of your nails.
Here is what you need:
- Base Coat
- Base Color (Optional)
- Black nail polish
- White nail polish
- Yellow nail polish
- Top coat
Apply a base coat to the nails, this will help prevent the nails from staining as we are using black nail polish.
This step is optional. Apply a base color - I chose a nude polish.
Apply Black polish to the tips of the nails that will not have a cat.
Apply an Orange Stripe just above the black tip.
To make the cat:
Apply black polish to the tip of the nail in a dome shape.
Make 2 triangles on each side of the dome for ears.
Fill in the ears.
Using white polish, fill in small amount in the ears. Apply 2 dots for the eyes.
This will help the yellow polish show up better against the black background.
Apply a cute little nose.
Apply yellow polish onto the eyes.
Apply a black stripe vertically through the center of the eyes.
Let the polish dry for a few minutes to prevent smudging and apply a generous amount of top coat.
The cats are so cute!!
