Cat Eye Nails - Here Are 17 Ways to Wear the Trend
There are few things more striking than the marbly, mystical appearance within the eyes of our favorite feline friends. Shades of blue, green, brown, purple, gold, black, and amber combine in a swirly combination of an almost metallic appearance, complete with a striking dark pupil. So, like a true nail art aficionado would do—why not capture the viral cat-eye look on your own nails?
While leopard manicures may have long held a monopoly on nail art inspired by our favorite cats, perhaps it's time they step aside to let cat eye nails have a major moment.
To achieve the look of this gorgeous trend, a metallic, diagonal line runs across the nail, typically painted with different deep jewel tones, creating the mirror-like effect of staring straight into a cat's eyes. Most nail artists and at-home DIYers alike use magnetic nail polish to create the illusion, using the magnet as the final step to create the look. Ahead, our 17 favorite ways to wear femme, feline-inspired nail design.

How does cat eye nail polish work?
Achieving a cat eye nail look is often does with magnetic polish. This polish contains iron particles which come up to the surface when a magnet is held over it. This leaves the particles sitting at the top and creating that cat eye effect.
How can I do a cat eye nail polish look?
Creating this look is as simple as getting some magnetic polish and crafting your favorite design. Magnetic polish can be purchased as a regular polish or gel polish (which requires UV light) and typically comes with a magnetic tool. After applying the polish, create your preferred design by moving the magnetic tool over the nail without touching it and guiding the polish to where you'd like it to be.
