Move over cheetah print, there’s a new type of animal print in town! Cow print nails are Instagram’s newest obsession and once you look at the stunning pictures that everybody’s sharing of their perfectly manicured nails, you’d wanna jump on this bandwagon too!
Earlier this year, Ariana Grande shared a black and white selfie on Instagram and all we could do was look at her thumb’s nail. That cow mani looked so bomb! And the next thing you know, it became an Insta sensation. Kendall Jenner has also tried the cow print mani, and we know you want to too!

We know you cannot wait to try this #CelebApproved nail art, trend! Here’s how you can flaunt in on the ‘Gram.
– White nail polish
– A black eyeliner
Step 1: Start by painting your nails with white nail enamel. Make sure you apply two coats.
Step 2: Using a precise eyeliner, start making the ‘cow’ patterns on your nails. Do not even worry about making a mistake as you can easily wipe off the eyeliner with a cotton ball before it gets dried down. Try this– make the pattern first, and then fill it in.
Step 3: Once you’re happy with your design, seal the deal with topcoat and that’s basically it!
You can also give it your own twist by adding a pop of neon shade to stand out from the crowd!
There’s no black and white (see what we did there?) rule that you cannot use another shade of nail paints when trying to recreate cow nails. Here are some fabulous nails inspirations to give this already fab manicure another update!
Instead of making the cow patterns with black eyeliner, choose a coloured eyeliner instead! If you do not have a coloured liner, just use a precise makeup brush, dip it into the nail paint and draw away!
Why only do just cow prints when you can literally do all types of animal print nail designs on each finger?
If you’re that babe, add a stick-on for some extra jazz!
If you love flaunting your nude nails, add the cow pattern on them but do not completely cover your nails. Just target a tiny portion of your nails and your nails are ready to take over the Instagram feed!
Do not have a white nail polish lying around? No problem! Create just the cow print on your nails and seal it with a topcoat. This idea is perfect for everyone who loves all things minimal.
Don’t know about you guys but we’re definitely trying this tonight!
