These paw print nails are so easy to do and you require no professional tools at all! Simple, cute and fun!

Paw Print Nails

Mix and match colours to create different looks and match outfits. It’s like a cute puppy or kitty walked over your nails!

Read on to follow the tutorial!

What you will need:
– 2 nail varnish colours
– Toothpick (optional)

1) Cover your nails in a clear base coat to protect them from staining.
2) Paint your nails with a base colour of your choice. I chose a white base.
3) Pick a second colour that will show up on top of your base colour. Wipe most of the varnish off the brush and only keep a little blob on the end. Carefully dab a medium dot in the corner of your nail. This will form the middle of the paw. If this is too hard to control then use a toothpick with a little bit of varnish on.
4) Dab three more little dots in a semicircle along the top of your medium one. You should now have a paw print!
5) You can add more paw prints on the nail if you wish, it’s up to you!

See how easy that was? Now its your turn! Will you try this nail art? Show me on Twitter by tagging @kekidoll.

    Great job love the color choices and the art.

    • Thanks Jackie! ^^

    These look great, and really easy to do. I bet I’d still fail though, I can hardly paint my nails properly without any fancy designs haha. Nail polish would be everywhere.

    Lovely colour choice by the way!

    • Hehehe, thanks Amy! I’m sure with practice you’ll be able to do nail art. It doesn’t matter if the base coat is messy. You can just use cotton buds and nail varnish remover! xxx

  • Those are cute! I will have to give it a try sometime. Though painting my nails in my line of work is a bit of a waste of time. cries, I wish I could have painted nails all the time. XD

    Cute nails! I like the paw print idea :) Unfortunately, I don’t paint my nails anymore because I don’t like to keep up with it, haha.

    • Oh no! I know what you mean, I hate when it starts chipping away. I don’t always have polish on though because I feel my nails need to breathe. :) It can be time consuming especially if you want fancy patterns!

  • Aww, this is cute! I love nail art tutorials – cutepolish on YouTube is my favourite to watch

  • What a cute idea! Now if only it were as easily done by my left hand than it is by my right hand. Merely painting with my “weaker” hand is a challenge already, after all. xD

    • I know what you mean! I have shaky hands too (bad blood circulation) so it’s twice as hard!

    Much love xxx
