A Multitude of Cats Nail Art (with a Sharpie!)

Happy Caturday! I am a cat lover. You might call me a crazy cat lady, but I only have 2 so, in my opinion, it hasn't reached crazy levels quite yet. In any case, when I'm doing nail art, I often look for inspiration in the things around me--patterns, colors, scenery, objects. Today, I decided to try my hand at matching my phone case...because cats.

It's probably the best phone case ever.


For this mani, I painted my nails white with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and let it dry completely. Then I used an ultra fine point Sharpie (yes, a Sharpie) to draw the cats. I used Seche Vite for a top coat, but later found out that Seche and Sharpie ink don't really mesh so well. It can cause streaking. I read somewhere that when using Sharpie on your nails, it helps to seal it with hairspray before applying top coat. I didn't do this and I have no idea if it works, but I might try it next time to avoid streaking.

What do you think? Sharpies for nail art? Yea or nay?

Thanks for reading!


  1. This is adorable! It looks like you have a pretty steady (and patient!) hand to do this with a sharpie!

  2. This is SO cute, I love it! And yeah, pretty sure that Is the best case ever :D
