Zooey Deschanel is known for her signature bangs and retro sense of style, but her quirky, fashion-forward nail designs have also garnered quite the following.

There was the tuxedo mani she sported to the 2012 Golden Globes (nothing short of incredible, right?), of course. And who can forget that cool cinema-themed nail art she wore to the show the following year? We could go on and on, but we know you want to see her latest work of nail art.

At last night's Emmys, Zooey showed up looking stunning in a gorgeous hot pink, strapless gown and metallic pumps, and her mani wasn't too shabby either. To go along with her flirty beauty look (fun retro curls and a pretty pout), Zooey's nail artist, Tom Bachik for L’Oréal Paris, went for a simple yet totally chic mani with a touch of personality.

He shared his inspiration for the look with SheKnows: "Zooey is sporting a super-hot pink dress, so I wanted to create a simple and classic look, playing up the tone-on-tone style. We wanted her nails to be clean and traditional, but with a fun, modern twist. I loved the idea of a reverse moon look on her. It's architectural, straight and very sleek." We have to agree. Lucky for you, we got Tom to share the step-by-step process for channeling Zooey's classy mani. Have fun, ladies!

Get the look

  1. Start off by polishing each nail with a baby pink color, such as L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Polish in I Pink I'm in Love.
  2. Next, place electric pink nail art tape about 3/4 of the way down the nail in a horizontal line.
  3. Make sure your look lasts by sealing it in with L’Oréal Paris Top of the Line Top Coat ($6).
  4. For an extra touch of shine and moisture, add a few drops of L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Glow Renewal Facial Oil directly onto nails and cuticles.
