Kitty Cat Stickers By Janchristie Designer Nail Art


I've been itching to give kitty nail art a try, and recently came across some cool cat stickers from Janchristie Designer Nail Art, that I just couldn't resist!

I ordered three sheets last Tuesday (Black Cat, Tuxedo Cat, and Tabby Kitten), and they came on Saturday, which is awesome, especially since they were shipped from the UK! The price was pretty reasonable too - for three sheets of stickers plus shipping, I paid around $11 USD.



Each sheet has 24 stickers, and they also sent a small pack of practice designs to get me started. The stickers come on sheets of paper that don't look like will peel, but (to my relief!) they do. A small scissor is required to cut around each shape as closely as you can, making sure you leave enough of a border so you can lift it up from the backing. After cutting the design out, I used my nail to peel it up a tiny bit, before switching to a tweezer to remove the sticker from the backing. The tweezer is necessary because the stickers are extremely thin and very sticky, and if they curl up, or you place them in the wrong spot, it's likely you won't be able to get them off again in one piece.

Janchristie recommends applying a base coat or a pale nail polish color before getting started, so I opted for three coats of a pale pink (ULTA Baby Doll) before applying the decals. Once that was dry and the design was placed, I added a top coat to seal it on. They also suggest adding another coat every day or two to preserve the life of the sticker.


I've only had them on a day so far (they've been through one shower), and they are still looking good, but I see them more as a novelty item then as something I expect to last for a long time. I think they are really cute and unique, and come in a nice variety of styles. I went buck wild by putting a different cat on each finger, but I like the black cat and tabby kitten the best. I also think they would be nice to wear on just one nail as an accent.

Janchristie Designer Nail Art can be purchased here, and also check them out on Pinterest to see more examples of their designs.

Disclosure: I purchased the nail stickers on my own, and was not given any products or other form of compensation for this review.
