If nothing else, the internet is a haven for adorable kitty videos. But a new beauty trend starring felines and their fashionable owners could soon overtake everyone’s cyber-cat-watching activities.
In June 2017, 19-year-old Cristi Hanzel from Littlerock, California, got her nails painted in a sparkly purple-glitter shade. Soon after, she went to her local Target to get nail caps for her kitten — and was delighted to find claw caps that were nearly the same shade as her own manicure.
So she put the caps on her kitty, Wednesday, and then took to social media to show off the matching manicures.
Naturally, the sweet post went viral pretty quickly.

“I’m obsessed with my cat so I was excited to go home and put them on her,” Hanzel told BuzzFeed News, which broke the story.
Since Hanzel’s social media posting, other pet owners have followed suit, many of whom have also used Twitter and Instagram to showcase the trend.
