Katy Perry (Brit Awards 2014) Neon Tribal Nails + Tutorial

Saturday, March 29, 2014
Hi everyone!

Today, I am finally showing you my most recent nail art, which was inspired by Katy Perry’s outfit from her Dark Horse performance at the 2014 Brit Awards.  As soon as I saw the photos a few weeks ago, I’ve been dying to recreate a similar pattern on my nails.  I also filmed it, so you can view the tutorial at the end of the post.

I fell in love with this color combination, and immediately knew that I had to use China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy for the majority of the design, along with Color Club Twiggie.  I had a hard time choosing the blue since I don’t have many “neon” blues, so I settled on Essie’s Avenue Maintain, and I am happy with how it looks.  The base is one of my favorite, new (to me) nudes, Julep Pippa.

These did take quite a long time to paint, even longer than my Vintage Floral Nails, which is a bit crazy, I know.  I also used the same brush to paint these, and I write more in depth about it in that post, if you would like more info.  The accent nail came from a similiar shape on her sleeve / chest, if you’re all wondering, and I’m really happy with how it turned out.
