We were already smitten with Katy Perry’s ever-changing VMA outfits (she started off in an Asian-inspired Atelier Versace frock and finished the night in a shapely Christian Dior Fall 2011 couture ensemble), but when we took a closer look, we noticed she ALSO swapped out her nails to match her outfits! *GASP* Katy is KNOWN for her to-die-for customized nail art (at last year’s VMAs, she sported her hubby Russell Brand on her tips), but switching up her nail game MID-SHOW brings it to a WHOLLLEE other level.

For her red carpet look, her pink pastel nails matched the pink puffs on her dress PERFECTLY, and the neon yellow lines mirrored the exact pattern on her frock. UH-MAZING.

During the show, she changed her tips to a black and white Minx checkered pattern with “Katy” written on her teal and pink half moons. The custom design, done by top nail stylist Kimmie Kyees, reflected the geometric ’80s-inspired Dior ensemble she was sporting SO perfectly. Check out the close-up below!
