Black Cat Nails: Tasteful Halloween Nail Art

By  |  2 Comments

You know all those gore or bright orange nails for Halloween? They’re not the easiest to wear, especially when you also have to fulfill your daily office duties!

I have friends who always go for classic (borderline dull) French manicures just because they work 9-5 and the most extravagant nails they wear are deep red for Christmas! My heart goes out for you – maybe a cute, tasteful minimalist kitten design would help? Black and white nail designs are highly versatile and appealing (and I’m not saying that just because I have a weakness for monochromatic nails right now) but I think you might just get away with wearing these at the office!

Remember when we were all convinced the Internet was made of cats? Everywhere I turned my head, a cute kitty was waiting for me. Everyone I knew was posting at least one video a day with two cute kittens playing with something or hiding in a teeny tiny cardboard box!

I have a couple of Garfied tshirts and comic books lying around, I love that lazy fat cat! Not to mention the famous ‘black cat’ – world’s most famous feline, even before Grumpy cat was born! I wanted to turn that black cat into a friendly, cute cat, even if it’s for Halloween, I think it can be worn in so many ways, unrelated to the upcoming haunting celebration – I have a friend who just might get yet another kitty tattoo after these nails ^_^ haha!

Sooo! Long story short: white base, matte topcoat, black acrylic and a thin brush! That’s all there is to this black cat nail art! Once your base is matte and dry, a drop of acrylic is enough to complete the drawings! I photographed each step of my kittens so you can – if you want – repeat the motif on your nails!

It takes just a bit of practice to get the doodling right, so feel free to try on a piece of paper first (with the same brush and paint you’ll use for the nails). I did that and I found it extremely helpful! I’ll add the step-by-step soon!

I personally like the index finger kitty better than the middle finger one and I even find the ring fingernail kitty off-centered ^_^ but I don’t mind – do you? Oh, and how sweet are the pinky paws? I was going for a kitty face but then I realized paws would be so much cuter – was I right? How do you like my cat nails?
