Katy Perry has roared louder than a lion to show her support for 2016 Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and this time, she’s #ReadyForHillary by letting her nails do all the talking. Yep, that’s right, the 31-year-old California Girls singer is demonstrating her enthusiasm in an unconventionally patriotic manner—nail art.
The 2016 elections will prove to be a momentous occasion, and if you want to be part of the furore, we suggest you pull a Katy and don some red, white and blue on your nails. Whatever the design you choose, make sure you have stars, stripes and soaring eagles in mind.
Here’s a simple DIY you can customize to your liking:
- Step 1: Start with a white base, then taking a 2mm-sized tape, place the strips across your nails (to spell out an ‘H’ for Hillary, ‘D’ for Donald Trump, ‘B’ for Bernie Sanders, or the initials of the candidate of your choosing). These should be at equal distance so that you have nice, even stripes.
- Step 2: Now, using the navy blue polish, paint over the strips and let it dry.
- Step 3: After a while, remove the tape and finish it off with a top coat of red glitter. To add just a little more funk, you could use stick-on hearts or stars. It’s really up to you!
And if just showcasing good ol’ patriotic spirit is what you’re after, then you must take a look at The Eclectic Nail Art DIYs On Our Pinboard, inspired by the American tricolor.
