Halloween Black Cat nails


I love this simple black cat nail design, It's easy to do and looks cute on the nails! For Halloween I'll be wearing black sparkly nail varnish on my nails and then have this little cat design as an accent nail!

This is how I achieved the look:

Step 1 -  Paint the whole nail black and wait to dry, I used 3 coats of 17 Nail Varnish in Nightshade.

Step 2 -  Using a cuticle stick, paint a pink triangle on the nail using the middle as a
             guide for the top of the Triangle, but make sure you leave enough room for the  
             eyes! For this I used Bourjois 26.

Step 3 - Again using a cuticle stick draw on the eyes, to do this I made a circle shape and 
            then dragged the stick up to create a 'cat eye' effect. I used 17 Nail Varnish in  
            Sherbet Lemon

Step 4 - Whiskers! I used the thin metal pen end of the models own nail art pen. This has a brush and a pen, I found the brush too difficult to use but the pen was so easy to draw on the nail.

Step 5 - Once the eyes are dry, use a cuticle stick to draw on the pupils. I used 17 Nail Varnish in Nightshade but a Green Nail varnish would also work really well!

Let me know if you try these!



  1. Just followed you, these nails are dead cute :)

  2. Cute! I barely have the patience to do nail art on one nail, let alone ten. You should check out some glow in the dark polishes too, if that's your thing. I feel like it'd go well with the Halloween theme :P

    1. Glow in the dark nail varnish sounds amazing! :)

  3. These are a great idea. I'll definitely be trying them out. I'm so bad at nail art though. I see the photos from WAH nails and I get so jealous haha!
