Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake” Video: Exclusive Manicure Details!Jun 19, 2012 @ 2:30 pm
Katy Perry is awake, everyone! Her new video for “Wide Awake” just came out, and it illustrates her dark-to-light transformation—emotionally and stylistically—representative of her life after splitting from husband Russell Brand. (Scroll through to 3:32 to see her knock out Prince Charming.) The video features the pop superstar in an array of looks, from candy-inspired stage costumes to a dark goth beginning to a floral fairytale ending. The final look is one of our favorites, as it features one of the most over-the-top manicures we’ve seen worn by Perry—flower-embellished 3D nails. “Katy’s floral nails were inspired by the dress she was wearing,” her manicurist Kimmie Kyees told InStyle.com exclusively. “Her stylist and I spoke about the colors, and decided on pastels. We tried a nude nail with pastel French tips, but felt they should be more magical.” To add wonder, Kyees deconstructed larger flowers so they would fit on the nail, and let two vines cascade from the singer’s talons. “Katy loved the nails so much, she tweeted them, and we packaged them up for the label in case they want to give them away or auction them off in the future,” she added. We hope they do! Catch Perry’s botanical manicure the clip above.
