Nail Art Tutorial: Black Cat

Hi friends!
Today I wanted to show you how I made this little cat on my nails for last year's Halloween mani. It's not that hard and looks really cute! What I like about this is that you could also wear it on any day.
First, paint your nails with base coat and the color of your choice. I went with a very light lilac (444 by HEMA). Let dry.
Once it's dry, paint a half circle in black. You can use the brush that comes with the polish for this. Then, use a striper or a thin brush with black polish and make two triangles on each side for the ears. Wait for it to dry completely and after that, make small white ovals for the eyes. They should be opaque so two coats might be necessary. Once the white dried add some green or yellow polish over the eyes. Finally, draw the pupils with some black. This is the hardest part I think. Take your time so they are approximately the same size. The colors I used are from HEMA too (851 Black and 809 white).
Finish with some top coat and you're done! I think this little cat would look great as an accent nail but you could also make a cute kitty on each nail by changing the size and shape of the ears each time so it's not boring! I really hope you give this a try. Tell me if you do!
Love, Elsa
