nail art one
Start off by painting your nails with a nice base coat. This is optional and you can directly start by using a light nail polish such as shimmer pink. However, do remember that if you are going to be using a lot of acrylic or fabric paints on the nails then it is good to apply a base coat. Application of base coat is essential for cases where your nails have habit of getting stains or are prone to chipping.
I have skipped base coat. I have directly applied 2 decent layers of a very light shimmer pink color on to all the nails.


nail art two
Paint up all the 4 nails except for the middle finger nail with fuchsia pink polish leaving space for the tips.


nail art three
Use a nail art brush and white polish to perfectly create the white French tips. You can use white acrylic paint too. Paint up the middle finger nail with white nail polish.


nail art four
Paint up the whiskers of Kitty using a thin nail art brush and black acrylic paint. Or you can use your black striper. Now give a centre black dot with the blunt end of the toothpick. Use a dot of yellow acrylic color over the black dot for completion of the nose of Kitty.


nail art five
Give two dots for the eyes of the kitty with black and draw a bow with a nail art brush and pink polish.


nail art six
Now take the black striper or a nail art brush and acrylic paint and draw the outline for the bow. Give some inner detailing too. Next take your toothpick or a dotting tool and light pink nail polish or acrylic paint (preferably not of the same color as we have used on top) and give some dots of varied sizes on to the white tips of 4 nails.


nail art seven
Apply a line of transparent polish on to the demarcation between the pink and white portions for 4 of the nails. Cut metal chains properly according to the size of your nails. Take the help of a pair of tweezers and place the pieces of metal chains one after the other in a curved manner.


Now your design is complete. Apply two decent layers of transparent polish to seal in the whole design and to keep the chains from falling off. Hope you enjoyed this one.
Things you need for version 2 are as follows:
  • A base coat (optional)
  • A shimmer pink color nail polish
  • A light pink nail polish
  • A dark purple nail polish
  • A transparent polish
  • White polish
  • A thin nail art brush or black striper or black nail art pen
  • Light yellow acrylic color
  • Black polish or acrylic paint
  • Fimo flowers 4 pieces
  • A toothpick
Now I will show you another hello kitty pattern for your nails. Follow the same steps from 1 to 3 as shown in the first version. But the only change i made here is, this time I have applied purple on the middle finger instead of white. I have also changed the fuchsia pink to a lighter sweet pink color. The white French tips have been kept the same.
nail art nine
It should look something like the above picture after Step 3.
nail art ten
Take your white polish or acrylic paint and give some big and small dots with your dotting tool or toothpick on to the middle nail. Do the same with a yellow polish or yellow acrylic color.
nail art elevenStep5.
Use a striper or a fine nail art brush and acrylic paint to draw the whiskers of Kitty. Use a black dot in the centre using the back end of a toothpick. Now take the front pointed end of the toothpick and give a yellow dot in the centre of the black dot. This saves you from creating a border around the tiny yellow dot which requires a lot of precision.
After this, apply some transparent polish on to the right corner of the French tips. Take a single Fimo flower of your choice with the help of a pair of tweezers. Place the Fimo flowers properly on to the dollop of transparent polish.
nail art twelveStep6.
Now use a toothpick’s back end to take some black polish and create the eyes. You can even use a black nail art pen for this. Your design is done. Seal this beautiful design with a coat of transparent polish.
Hope you enjoyed both the versions of hello kitty nails. Like this you can create several other hello kitty patterns even without water decals or costly nail art materials. Leave your feedback!
