Katy Perry’s Flower Power Nails

By on July 28, 2009

ALU Fanatic Angelica shared (via Facebook) this post from Perez Hilton about Katy Perry‘s latest tattoo. Of course us nail girls will immediately notice her colorful, frisky tips.

Katy posted that image on Twitter via TwitPic where she originally shared a snap of her mani a little over a week ago (below). See, that’s the fun of Twitter folks. If you haven’t embraced it, get on board. If for no other reason than to win some polish from yours truly.

A quick search of the Minx website confirmed that Katy is indeed wearing the popular nail stickers. As you may recall, I tried out Minx last December and while I enjoyed the look, I had issues with lifting not long after. But if you inspect Katy’s pic from today (above), her nails have grown out some yet the Minx are intact. Makes me wonder if they’ve improved the product since then or if it was just a bad application by my nail tech.

What do you think Fanatics? Are you over Minx? Loving Minx? How are we feeling about Katy’s nails? Has anyone had great success wearing Minx on their fingers? I’ve heard raves about them on toes. Sound off!

    Hey Michelle! I am LOVING this! I have been head over heels for different and fun things on nails like funky french and have been making it a point to comment on every nail gal's interesting/fun/experimental tips I've come across. Katy Perry is great and I think the power of the Twittersphere will reach a MASSIVE-ness that none have yet fathomed yet. the FUTURE is now people!I love you Michelle (and twitter, but not in a weird way ;)..! you make everyday things (a la picking a polish) so much fun!

    They look like Konad deluxe! :D

  5. paintedladyfingers says:

    I think it's adorable. I love the bright colors and the cheerful floral pattern. I don't know that I would be into getting minx on my own nails, more for the process and cost. I love the look however!

    I like Katys nails and like the "IDEA" of MINX but, not the appliciation or the support from the company. I ordered MINX and followed the application instructions. It turned out ok but, I would really wanted more training. I cant add this to my menu until Im sure of the application and how long it will REALLY last. Long story short….I called the company and even offerd to go to them , they told me that they are not offering training classes at this time …and directed me to YOUTUBE and BLOGS… Huh !!

    this is really cute! i've recently bought some konad plates but in the end i think i'm more of a plain one color kind of girl.

  12. Redz2486 says:

  13. Mama Jen says:

  14. beautyjudy says:

    I saw this in Glamour, either August or July! I love it! It's so funky! You said you had problems with it lifting – did you use a top coat over Minx or are you not supposed to?

  15. candita says:

    Not going to lie, I would totally rock that! I want!

  16. Orli says:

    I saw that pic on Katy's twitter…I love the look!

  17. The Glitterati says:

    Honestly, I'm not feeling this one. It's just too busy for me. But it IS cute, and I like that Katy Perry is rocking it; definitely suits her!

    One of my last issues of Glamour (I think it was Glamour)showed a photo of a model sporting that very manicure. I However, with no Minx salons within 300 miles (and no desire to spend that kind of cash if there was one close), I got creative and did my own "flower power" manicure. (link also available by clicking my name on this comment) I apologize for the blurry pic but I was using somebody else's camera. I started with a white base coat, then used a regular fine-point paintbrush dipped in several of my favorite neon nail polishes for the flower petals. I LOVED it and am thinking about doing it again this weekend! :0)

    Those are so cute!

  20. Yvonne says:

    I can't stand Katy Perry, but I do like her nails. Unlike her clothes, they are colorful but still chic.

  21. Bella B. says:

    I've never tried Minx, but Katy's nails look shinier than yours in that pic. Maybe there's a clear top gloss on hers?

  22. Blondie says:

    I am anxiously waiting to hear more about MINX from users. I emailed a by appointment only salon in IL asking about MINX and never heard back from them. Every picture I’ve seen is very cute, but kind of seems like the stickers are too thick. Does anyone know if Jenna Jameson’s manicure on Oprah the other day was MINX? It seriously looked like she had about 10 coats of nail polish on.

  23. I love your blog – nice effort!

    My girlfriend gets her nails done like Katy Perry’s at a salon called Digital Nail Art in Newcastle upon Tyne England. Her nails look fantastic!

  26. Jenna says:

    Hi just wanted to say that to get katie perrys floral nails or similar sally hansen has new product called salon effects and she has floral 1s like this or black and white like this and color flowers … you can get salon effects on ebay , cvs walmart and kroger usally cost about 7.00 and 16 come in a pack :o)

    I saw her manicurist tweet about applying different Minx on her last week so I would assume that’s what you saw. I didn’t feel like they were thick. What you’re seeing on Katy includes a clear layer of UV Gel to keep them from lifting. That’s not the standard procedure. I found them to be thin, they just started lifting earlier than I expected. It all depends on the tech and their familiarity with the product
