I was going to the Katy Perry concert and you know what that meant – I needed a special Katy Perry manicure.
Katy has a lot of fun with her own nails so I wanted to do her proud. It was easy, really, because I have two bottles from her OPI Collection.
Last Friday Night and Teenage Dream.
I’ve played with them before and I didn’t want to repeat my layering combos.
So this time, I decided I was going to use black as a base. I picked up Illamasqua Boosh because it hasn’t been getting the love it deserves.
All I had to do was choose between Teenage Dream and Last Friday Night.
I found that even with one coat, Teenage Dream was way too glittery for my mood so I went for Last Friday Night. It makes sense. After all, Last Friday Night was the song that made me really like Katy.
I considered putting Last Friday Night on accent nails.
Then I decided to just go all the way.
Why not, right?
I’ve always liked Last Friday Night but over black it’s insane.
The glitter flashes all kinds of crazy colors and I love it.
And I love how the black polish brings out the blue sparkle – you don’t see that when you layer it over blue.
My nails were ready for Katy.
Out in the sun, you can see the colors even more.
We arrived at the concert venue early and had a quick dinner.
The concert started super late – and when I say late, I mean two hours late. But once it did, holy crap, I forgot about all the time we had to wait.
It was awesome. It was a great show – the set was elaborate, the outfits were crazy (she changed seven times while singing the song Hot N Cold), it was so much fun.
Seriously. I walked into the concert liking Katy Perry, I walked out completely in love with her. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
And because we had spent over an hour looking at giant cupcakes, huge lollipops, candy-inspired dresses, cotton candy screens and dancing gingerbread men, we left the concert craving for ice cream. So we headed to Manila Pen.
And there we met Katy’s dancers and band members.
But sadly, not Katy herself.
I would have loved to show her my concert mani.
