53 Cat Nail Designs For Kitten Lovers

by Sherri Owens

If you're as obsessed with cats as I am, then you know that everything about cats exudes cuteness. From their little paw prints to their cute whiskers, they are a delight to have around. What's even better? their cute features look just as good on nails.

I've done plain black nails that have been made extra cute just by adding little paws, and kitty whiskers. After that, I had to go the extra mile with a complete cat outline on my nails. And boy, am I glad I did.

Cats have so many cute details, which makes nails with cat designs always stunning. From little paw prints to complete facial features, here are 55 feline nail designs for a cute and striking appearance.

Cat Nail Designs For You To Try

1. Nude and Black Cat Nail Art Designs

Nude and black always look awesome. The nude nails feature black tips with one cat accent nail on each hand. One finger has a design of a squatting cat, while the other has two paw prints on the ring finger nail.
