Tik Tok by Ke$ha!
Now, this mani has a lot going on, so I'm gonna do a breakdown of each nail for you.
My thumb was inspired by Ke$ha's crazy eye makeup. I did the pattern by putting some black polish at the top of the nail, and then putting some clear polish on a nail art brush and then pulling the black down along with the clear.

This photo in particular was what gave me the idea to do this nail:
My pointer was sort of just inspired by Ke$ha herself. Glitter everywhere, sort of dark and dirty, just having a fun time and partying all day and all night! The nail art glitter came in a set that I ordered on eBay for a few bucks. I stuck it on with some clear polish and then put topcoat over it.

My middle finger is... a GRUNGY JACK DANIELS LABEL! How cool is that? This was the genius idea of Rebecca's from Rebecca Likes Nails. I wasn't sure I could do it but her faith in me was inspiring! I know it's not perfect but it does actually look like it to me, especially from arms length. This was obviously inspired by the line in the song, "Before I leave brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack." I freehanded this with a sewing needle.

My fourth finger was inspired by the title of the song - Tik Tok. As you can see, it's a pair of clock hands over a sponged gradient. I freehanded the hands with a square end nail art brush. The sponging was done with a triangle makeup sponge.

My pinky is my favorite nail of all of these! I did a splatter mani for the first time, which involves dipping a straw into some polish and then dramatically blowing it on to the nail (which I prepped with a few coats of white). Then I topped it with Lynnderella Connect the Dots, a super special franken beauty that I got my hands on recently.

PHEW! That was a lot of imagery and explanation! What do you guys think? Did I capture all of the sides of Ke$ha and this awesome party song? I had so much fun making this mani and the craziness of this nail mix is just so appealing to me!
