Nail Art Tutorial: Wildcat Paw Print
"CONGRATULATIONS NCAA CHAMPS!!" If you're a native from Kentucky or just a long-time fan, you know this is an exciting win for us Kentuckians!! After a phenomenal season this year, I wanted to get decked out in blue and white with an easy paw print manicure.
Whether you're a sports fan or not - this is great for any animal lover, and like most of my nail art entries on Steph's Closet, its SIMPLE! And that's exactly what I aim for. If it isn't simple, then I honestly don't have time. Plus, I'm always thinking about that non dominate hand!
Supplies/Tools used: Nubar Blueberry Nail Polish for base color, White Acrylic Paint for dots and a Bobby Pin. I usually grab my handy dotting tool for the dots, but I wanted something larger like the tip of a Bobby Pin. It ended up working out perfectly for this particular design.
There's two ways you can create the base paw - just a standard dot (like I did above), or a triangular shape (like the picture tutorial below), which is more realistic compared to an actual animal print. Either way, both options are super easy, no-brainers.
Begin by dipping the bobby pin end into paint/polish and off you go! Just remember you have full control on how big or little your dots are by the amount of paint/polish used on the bobby pin. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves!
Simple, Cute and Easy.
What do you think of my paw print design? Are there any Kentucky fans out there? Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
