Y’all know how I generally feel about over the top holiday nail art. However, for Valentine’s Day, I make an exception. V-Day is a holiday that basically exists for nail art.

There’d be pictures of nail polishes in cute colors and something about getting a new box every month. Fun! I live on a budget, though, so I always quelled my desire to join.

Squeedorable calico cat Pudge is far and away the world’s best Internet cat and that is not up for discussion. So you can imagine my thrill that Pudge and her human now have a DIY series on YouTube called “Pudge It Yourself!” The first DIY is cute kittycat nail art, which work like temporary tattoos. All you need is a printer, adhesive paper scissors, and light nail polish colors. If you don’t own a printer, you can also get your Pudge nail art decals for $5 straight from the Pudge store. Yes, there’s a Pudge store. [YouTube]
