Hello Kitty Nails: 30 Hello Kitty Nail Art Designs
Hello Kitty was pretty much everyone’s obsession when they were younger. We are all guilty of getting the stuffed toy, the duvet cover, stickers – if that cute cat’s face was on it, we were having it! Hello Kitty hadn’t cropped up in your mind for a nail had she? Well, she isn’t just for young children you know! We have found some super cute nail art designs of her and we will prove that you do not need to be five years old to love them!
If you are not too good at drawing cats, or Hello Kitty isn’t really your thing, then this design is ideal. The design features her little bow, and a mix of fuschia and pale pink stripes for an extra touch of girliness. Remember girls to use tape to get super straight lines!
Love Hello Kitty? Love Cupcakes? Well why not combine the two loves of your life? For the cupcake wrapper, use a baby pink for the tip of your nail before using a darker one to draw thin short lines. This design is really pink yet basic and would look great at school or at work!
A Japanese spin on the French manicure. This design features Hello Kitty on the tips on your nails. Instead of using a skin-colored nail polish, you should use a glittery clear polish to feel like a Hello Kitty princess. We recommend Essie Set In Stone for the best glittery topcoat!
This design is also a cute manicure but isn’t it just gorgeous? If you are a nail art pro, you should totally go for this! It has everything you would expert from a Hello Kitty design – reds, pinks, glitter and bows! You can even add a nail jewel instead of drawing on a bow to change it up!
This is a lot more simple than the last design and asks a lot less work. All you have to do is paint your tips white, and use a small nail art brush to draw on her eyes, whiskers nose and bow! This design is so fresh and flawless, we want to get practicing right away!
This is probably one of our ultimate favorites! We love the precision and the color scheme, what would Hello Kitty be without a bit of pink? OPI have a Hello Kitty collection, the colors used here were Hello Kitty by OPI (fuchsia) and Hello Kitty Small + Cute by OPI (pastel pink). The Angelic Hello Kitty wasn’t drawn on, let’s face it, you’d really have to be an amazing nail art guru to draw it. You can buy Hello Kitty nail stickers from Amazon by just typing “Hello Kitty nail art stickers”. At $4, there is nothing to loose!
7Om-bow Hello Kitty Nail Polish
The Hello Kitty nail polishes by OPI make another appearance in this design. This design is so girly and pretty, isn’t the bow just adorable? The white to fuschia ombré is perfect for the summer too! Want to know how to do ombré? Click here to see our tutorial!

If you can’t have vibrant nails because of work or school restrictions, but are wanting to try these designs out, this gives you the best of both worlds. Use a subtle light pink like the OPI Hello Kitty Small + Cute or Essie Mademoiselle for an even lighter color. Just buy the Hello Kitty stickers off Amazon and you’re good to go!
9Hello Kitty In Love
If you are not a big fan of pink, why not try red? We love the retro vibe with the red and white spots! Use a white nail polish, like My Boyfriend Scales Walls by OPI for a crisp white that doesn’t like you invaded your pencil case!
This flower and glitter combo would be great for a party, why don’t you do your little sister’s nails like yours? For consistent flowers we recommend using flower templates, Ali Express has got you covered! For the glitter polish, you should get China Glaze’s polish in Nova.

Blue makes you nails look ready for the summer vacation! We love the blue glitter polish used here, which makes the design remain girly without the pink overdose! You should use China Glaze’s Wizard Of Ooh Ahz Nail Polish Collection 2009 in Dorothy Who?. It is the same sparkly marine blue as the one used in the picture!
This design is so subtle and lush. It shows us that even Hello Kitty can be classy if the right colors are chosen! These nails are perfect and are obviously nail transfers! You can find similar, fresh styles on Ali Express for under $4, click here to learn how to apply nail transfers!

We love this, the lime green totally makes a change from the pinks we had seen earlier. We have found a similar color by Essie called Mojito Madness, it is so vibrant and girly!
