You have my sister to blame/thank for this one! She introduced me to Neko Atsume – the cute Japanese cat game for your phone that you need in your life right now.This is my first attempt at this design, so next time I’ll do a tutorial, but for now here’s how I did it:
A base coat (pastel colours would work really well)
Cat colours (grey, beige, black, brown etc.)
Black Sharpie pen
I started by painting a curve of the base colour of the cat on each nail. Next, add the ears with a smaller brush. This one gets fiddly…
Add the details (white patches etc.) with nail varnish, then allow to dry completely for attempting the outline. I haven’t mastered the art of fine lines without making a mess of my manicure, plus my black nail polish was getting rather gunky so that wasn’t happening. Instead I outlined my cats with a black Sharpie pen. I find these work great on nails (and practically everything else) provided the nail polish is fully dry first. Plus, it’s a lot easier than using nail varnish and a fine brush.
Apply a top coat and help yourself to a generous helping of Frisky Bits – you’re done.
