1. Outline Nails (or Border Nails)
2. Striped Nails
3. Hieroglyphics Nails
Katy Perry most likely used pre-painted press on nails. The reason for this is that often music videos are shot in its entirety in one night-that can be up to 14-18 hours of straight shooting. As a result, it is much more convenient to have pre-painted press on nails which can be easily removed. You can tell that they are press on in the 2nd screenshot (stripped nails). You can
do a similar look by buying blank press on nails to do your artwork. Press on nails can be purchased at any beauty salon store or online such as Amazon (you can always paint over french manicure press on nails, as long as you use a thick
coat). However, the work can be easily done with a little time and patience on your own natural nails.
