Who would've thought often-blue-haired Katy Perry would turn up with one of the best manicure ideas for the holidays?
But at a recent red carpet event her creative nail designs were a hit: festive, but chic at the same time.
Think of Katy Perry's nails as a sort of reverse French manicure done with a simple alternating swipe of red and green. And while these look adorable on short nails, do not attempt this look on long or fake nails (where it would be waaaaaay too much of a good thing.)
