Mere months after the launch of her own polish line, celebrity tech Patricia Yankee already applied her fashion-inspired hues onto singer- songwriter Katy Perry’s nails...not just once, but twice! Dubbed Patricia Couture Nail Lacquer, Yankee’s line debuted with 24 shades (plus a base and a top coat) that are inspired from the tech’s years of work with New York Fashion Week, where she often creates specialty colors to fit designers’ requests.

For the launch of Perry’s new perfume, Yankee says,“I used Patricia Couture Nail Lacquer in Ransom with Nail Veils accents and genuine ruby embellishments. I worked closely with Su Laing from Nail Veils to get the exact look to match Katy’s perfume bottle.” For the Met Ball, Yankee used Patricia Couture Nail Lacquer in Diadem, plus CND Additives, layers of foil, and antique rubies.
