DIY: Cat's Eye Nails

I've recently been getting into doing interesting designs on my nails. In no way am I good at painting my nails. I'm the person who gets polish all over my hands and the sides of my fingers, but I've been trying. I originally got this idea from my mother who said, "Katie, wouldn't it be cool if you did your nails to resemble cat's eyes?" I thought about what a great idea that was, and how I didn't know why I never thought of it. I got out my metallic green, black, and clear polishes, and I retrieved a toothpick from the kitchen. This is all you need to achieve this look. 

All you do is paint the base your desired metallic color. After you let your base coat dry, dip your toothpick in the black polish and carefully dab the slit shape onto the nail. After you're finished, paint on your clear top coat to finish it up. After that, you're done. It's that simple! 

Here were my results:


  1. Oh wow, that's very cute!

    I never realised it could be that easy. :3

  2. I am hoping to go see the musical cats next year so this look would be perfect for that!

    Much Love: If you fancy a nosey. xx

    1. That will be perfect. I've never seen cats, but I would like to. :)
