Nail Art Inspired by Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night" Video

Celebrities often wear the latest trends, and Katy Perry not only follows the nail art trends, she sets them! In her latest video "About Last Night," Katy wears a vibrant, colorful look that's very reminiscent of the 80's. (I can remember wearing colors like those back in the 1980s, and my hair was almost as high as hers!)

The first thing I did to do this look was to watch the video. Actually, I think I watched it 15 or 20 times, pausing, squinting, and trying to pick out detail. Good thing I enjoy the song! You can watch it too if you like!

When watching the video, you can tell they're a set of false nails that were decorated first, then applied with tabs for the video. Super cute!

As I said, I worked hard to pick out the details of her nail art. It was hard to do, but I saved the best images that showed her nails.Click the images to see them full-size.

I feel guilty posting all these snaps of Katy, poor thing looks so awkward in all of them! I did save one shot that has no nails, but looks gorgeous just to show I'm not trying to make her look funky!

I think her eyes look so pretty in this shot! Anyway, once I had the basics figured out, I went ahead and did one nail in the 80s-tastic style! It's a super-simple style, and you can change it up however you like! Check out these ideas I put together just playing around...

So, as usual, I've put together a quick animation to show how easy it is for you to do your own 80's-tastic nail art! All you need is some tape and some fun bright colors. If pink and green aren't your colors, switch it up- go for pink and purple, red and black... it's all up to you!

So remember- it's all up to you, and if you screw it up, it's only nail polish!! Til next time, lovelies!

My sanity was provided by... wait, did someone provide sanity? Because I seem to have lost mine...
