katy perry wore the sweetest candy pink manicure to the grammys and i haven’t been able to get it out of my head. rumor has it that her nail artist layered covergirl outlast natural blush over forever fawn to do the job. i fell in love with its understated elegance that went perfectly with her frothy valentino music gown.

i recreated the look (correction: the fine people at mani nails on w 37th in nyc recreated the look) with a bit more punch using essie chastity. i struggled to find the right pink, but once i landed on chastity’s pure cotton candy goodness, i knew it was the right call.

my pink katy perry-inspired nails are making me so happy this morning, even as it dumps snow on all of new york, and even after i had to break my cardinal rule of not entering macy’s herald square under any circumstances last night (to buy snow boots – ugh).

wishing you a fab monday, beauties! also – just for fun – what’s on your nails?

    For my nails I usually keep it simple and love Essie’s Mademoiselle. It looks clean and polished. But I do love to wear a great red every so often.

    Pink manicures do lift the spirits- great color!
    Why avoid Macy’s Herald Sq?

      so glad you agree! the flagship macy’s just tends to be a spectacle – but i will say that i had a pretty streamlined experience, so maybe i will change my tune :)

  3. I have been doing gels which is so unlike me. But my guy picked this awesome sparkly chocolate that I am LOVING. They have to come off soon and I almost hate to see them go. But maybe I need a cheerful pink – you’ve inspired me!

    chanel rose cache hits that perfect nude-pink sweet spot.

  5. oh this reminds me of one of the YSL spring shades I’ve been eyeing! I was in nyc last week too haha. Bloomingdales in soho would be my shopping pick haha.

      i’m sorry i missed you in nyc! i *try* not to shop too much when i’m there, but i usually can’t resist the sale room at anthro in rockefeller center (followed by a magnolia cupcake) :)

      • hehe i’m pleased they opened more locations of magnolia in the last few years. in any event, i was pretty restrained too. At some point, we will have to meet if we’re ever in the same place at the same time hehe!

    Oh man, 34th St Macy’s is just the WORST. Hope you got some cute snow boots :)
