How to Get Quick and Easy Rockstar Manicure

A Fun and Easy Way to Make Rockstar Nails More Wearable

Last year, Kimmie Kyees, nail artist to the stars, created Katy Perry's shimmery purple, bedazzled manicure for the Kids' Choice Awards. And while the look was perfect for the red carpet, perhaps for everyday, it's just a tad over-the-top. To see a quick and easy way to get your own version of rockstar nails at home— with surprisingly pretty results — just keep reading.

Start by using Milani's One Coat Glitter polish in Purple Gleam ($5). (I needed two coats for full-on coverage.) Next, using a nail art brush and the brand's Jewel FX polish in Gems, randomly dot on splotches of polish to the nail. The results are a bit more subdued, and the multihued glitter almost has an effervescent quality to it, as if bubbles were rising to the top. Finish with a topcoat to prevent chipping.
