Oh, looming VMA’s, how you tease us with thoughts of all of the ah-mazing FASHION that will soon be titillating our eyes, captivating our souls, and sending tiny, electric flickers through our multicolored fingertips. Speaking of bedazzled nails, we can’t help wondering what Video of the Year nominee Miss Katy Perry (aka Mrs. Russell Brand) will be doing to commemorate the nod. She’s pretty much the reigning QUEEN OF NAIL ART if you ask us.

Her 2010 VMA set of nails was a tribute to Rusty Rockets (aka her beloved VMA veteran hubby). She had close-ups of his face as well as his Chaplin-esque portrait dancing atop a background of white polish, and she waved him—er, them—for the cameras proudly. She did a similar manicure over the summer in honor of the Royal Wedding and tweeted a photo of her “ROYAL nails,” which were primarily mini pics of Prince William, aka the new Duke of Cambridge. (Do we detect a possible royal CRUSH?!) But who can forget Katy’s pièce de résistance, the nails to end all nails, the tiny blue finger squeaks heard ’round the world? That’s right, we’re talking about the SMURF nails. How can she possibly top THAT? How can she possibly grab our nail-obsessed attention next? An homage to her nom’d videos? Meta much? Exploding fireworks? Pictures of aliens or E.T.’s face? Whatever the look, we’re sure to love it and bow down. RESPECT.
