DIY Hello Kitty nail art
This post may contain affiliate links.
My nails are feeling really long and strong at the moment so I fancied doing something a bit different with them. I recently purchased some sheets of nail art stickers from eBay and thought I’d have a go with them, they’re a bit childish but I love Hello Kitty and thought they were really cute! The stickers feature Hello Kitty herself, plus little rabbits, handbags and shoes – very girly!
First I painted my nails with two coats of Barry M Strawberry Ice Cream Nail Paint, this is a basic baby pink nail polish and it’s one of my favourites. Once the nail polish was dry I carefully peeled the Hello Kitty stickers off the clear backing sheet using tweezers and placed them onto the nails, before gently pressing down to ensure they were stuck. It’s definitely worth making sure the nail polish is completely dry before you attach the stickers, otherwise it’s really easy to smudge the nails.
Once the stickers were attached I finished off with one coat of Barry M Diamond Glitter Nail Paint, it’s perfect as a sparkly top coat over nail art as the flecks of holographic silver glitter are so fine they don’t detract from the design or stickers, they just add a really nice sparkly shine.
This nail art look is very pretty and girly, it would be perfect for a little girl too and the stickers are quite small so they’d fit on very small nails. When I purchased the Hello Kitty nail stickers they came in a set of 7 sheets, with different cartoon designs – these included animals, Winter penguins, fairies, Mickey Mouse and fruits. It was only 99p (plus free P&P) for the whole set of 7 sheets – that’s just 14p per sheet! They come from Hong Kong though, so can take a couple of weeks to arrive.
