Katy Perry Wears Custom Minx to 2011 VMAs
Katy Perry is making a habit of wearing custom designed Minx to the the VMAs. Last year Katy Perry's VMA nail design choice was both fun and meaningful when she wore custom "Russell Brand" Minx at her VMA appearance. Katy Perry donned custom Minx nails to the 2011 Video Music Awards on August 28 as she accepted the Video of the Year award for her powerful single, “Firework.” If you look closely at Katy’s Minx, you will notice that each nail showcases a tiny personalized image of a record at the nail bed. These miniature records symbolize each of the five hit singles from her “Teenage Dream” album that propelled Katy into music history.
Los Angeles celebrity nail stylist Kimmie Kyees designed the custom Minx, using a black and white-checkered background to contrast with the blue and pink-labeled records that had “Katy” and “Perry” written on them in script.
Katy Perry is the only woman in the history of Billboard to have five songs from the same album at No. 1 on the Hot 100. Michael Jackson is the only other artist with this achievement.
