Did You See Katy Perry's Nails at the VMA's? Here's a Roundup of Her Best Manis To Date

Katy Perry is the undisputed queen of nail art, and she never disappoints with her manicures. Last night at the VMA's was no exception. In a move that had everyone's head spinning, she changed her nails along with her outfits (thanks to MTV Style for spotting the change up). She started out with a lovely pastel and yellow mani to coordinate with her Atelier Versace dress, then switched to a checkerboard emblazoned with the word "Katy" in pastel. If anyone deserves a nail retrospective, it's Katy Perry. In honor of her stellar looks at the VMA's last night, we've rounded up her best manicures. Click through to see them all.
