There are times we take matching fashion trends a tad bit too far, and this is probably one such instance. After Mother-daughter matching dresses, not to forget the age-old tradition of siblings – especially twins – being dressed alike, we now have fashion conscious pet owners getting their cat’s paws manicured and painted to match their own!
Though there is very basic problem with this trend, which is that nail polish should not be used on the claws of your pets because of the polish’s toxicity. However, there is a way out and doting pet owners have embraced with with perfectly manicured hands – nail caps. People have found out these nail caps to attach to their cat’s claws and then get matching nailpaint.
Adorable, you say? Darn right it is.
Soon we had people tweeting out and Instagramming photos of matching manicures of their nails with that of their pets, and others were quick to join in on the trend.
Take a look at some of the photos here.
Purple glitter anyone?

Then there were those who opted for nail stickers and put them on just long enough that they could take a picture.

And here are some more variations.
