When you're an unapologetic cat lady or man, there are endless ways to bond with your furry friend. From cuddles while binging Netflix to giving them more than their fair share of treats, pet owners love to spoil their kitties. The latest bonding ritual, however, is fairly out of the box, but a genius idea for beauty lovers. Getting matching manicures with your cat has started to trend on the internet, and while it may sound like a recipe for disaster, these nail ideas are both fashionable and functional.
If you're wondering where the idea to get a matching manicure with a cat came from, look no further than — where else — social media. Twitter user Cristi Hanzel took to her Twitter page to showcase her fresh manicure and her cat's own matching nails. Don't worry, though — Hanzel didn't paint them herself. She'd probably be covered in scratches at this point.
Hanzel applied colored caps — designed to help curb a feline's innate ability to destroy your clothes and furniture — in the same color as her manicure to her cat's nails. And so, the matching cat and human manicure was born.
While you may not love claw caps for cats — they can be mildly controversial — every cat is different, and your cat may not mind them at all. If that's the case, what sort of manicures can you and your cat be #twinning with?
Here are some great manicure ideas for you and your kitty.
