Tutorial: Hello Kitty French Tips!

How adorable are these nail designs? We love Hello Kitty and French Tips, and we definitely love them together! Best thing about it is that it is a very easy to create this look. 

Let's get started!

What You Will Need:
  • A Dotting Tool (Or a toothpick)
  • Nail Polish
    • Clear Top/Base Coat Nail Polish 
    • White Nail Polish
    • Black Nail Polish
    • Yellow Nail Polish
  • Fimo Stick Bow Find It Here for Only $1.20 for 80-100 pieces! 
  • Optional: Nail tapes or rounded stickers, Nail filer

Start off with cleaned, polish-free nails. Apply a clear base coat and let dry.

Keep the hand you are working on flat on a table, with the fingers pointing to the right. Use your white nail polish and go directly across (if you have squared nails) or at a slight curve without lifting the brush off your nail. Use the optional nail tapes or rounded stickers as a guide if desired. Fill in any sections you missed.

On your ring finger nail, take your dotting tool (or toothpick) and create two dots for the eyes on the white tip, dragging them a little bit to make a slight oval shaped eye as Hello Kitty's. Draw 3 whiskers on each side of the white tip. Do the same for a slightly oval nose in a yellow nail color.

Place a thinly sliced fimo stick bow on the top left or right corner of the character's face and press down to lay it down on the nail as flat as possible while the nail polish is almost dried.

Apply a generous layer of clear top coat (especially on the ring fingers) on each nail and let dry. You're done!

Have fun with your glamourous Hello Kitty French Tip manicure!
