BeautyManicure Monday: Black Cat Nails with Syl and Sam

Hey ladies,

As soon as October rolls around, we get into a Hallowe’en mood. We’re already thinking up costumes and collecting new creepy decorations. This week we decided to do some cute black cat nails to get us in the mood, but this manicure can be done any time of year if you’re a kitty lover!
Here’s the look we’re going for:
What you’ll need:
- base coat colours (we used a rainbow of colours)
- black nail polish
- red and white polishes and a striper brush
Start with a few coats of your base colour. You can definitely pick a single colour, but we went for a rainbow look for fun!
Then take a solid black colour and brush on a half circle shape at the tip of your nail. This will be your cat’s head! Do the same on all of your nails
Then taking your striper brush, draw pointed ears on each head.
Then take your red and apply a tiny dot for a nose using a thin striper brush. You can also use a toothpick or small dotting tool. Do the same with the white polish to make dotted eyes. We didn’t show the step but you can also add a curly little tail with your black polish using your striping brush!
Top coat and you’re done! MEOW!
