We’ve oft reported that when Katy Perry is passionate about something, she likes to express it on her nails. Most recently, we saw Katy sporting classic cartoon character Daria on her nails, which were hand-painted on in Japan. And now? Well, as the Presidential election hots up in the States, how better to show support than by wearing your favourite candidate on your digits? For Katy, her US hero is President Barack Obama - in case you hadn't guessed.
The mani was done especially for Katy's performance at the President Obama Fundraiser event in Los Angeles on Sunday so of course it had to be pretty darn special. So the songstress and nail art fanatic headed to one of her favourite manicurists, Kimmie Kyees - yep, the very same Kimmie of Oompa Loompa and Russell Brand nail fame.
Using Minx to create the bespoke Obama nails for Katy, Kimmie put the President's smiling face on Katy’s ring and pinkie fingers as well as her thumb then decorated the rest of her nails with stars, stripes and the Democrat donkey symbol. What could possibly be more patriotic?
In true K-Pez stylee, she took to Twitter to share a snap of her Presidential nails with the caption: 'Appropriate nails'. Indeed. So here's hoping Michelle Obama follows suit by wearing her husband’s face on her fingers. After all, this is JUST the type of campaign fun Michelle likes to take part in!
PS. Minx are releasing an entire ‘Presidential Collection’, which includes both Democrat and Republican designs so that all US-ers can show their support on their nails. Genius! What's more, you can now apply the previously professional use only wraps at home. Just visit www.MinxTastingRoom.com to get in on the Presidential race and show your allegiance.
