It’s no secret that we’re die-hard nail art aficionados here at MTV Style, and given that Zooey Deschanel is one most active celebrities in the nail game, we were amped to see what she’d have in store for her 2013 Golden Globe Awards red carpet look. Zooey traipsed down the step-and-repeat in a glamorous Oscar de la Renta gown in bright red and fit for a princess. She styled the dress with a flirty evening ponytail and a strand of big ivory pearls, but it was the action happening above her cuticles that we were most excited to uncover. We maaaay or may not have had an office pool betting on what theme the New Girl actress would run with this evening.
Given that Deschanel already painted her date on her nails via tiny tuxedos at last year’s Golden Globes, we knew that steez was definitely out of the running. We hit our Zooey archives for clues and designs we could similarly disqualify like nautical silver anchors and sweet rhinestone bows. A sucker for a theme, we figured there was a 50/50 chance she might make like her Emmys retro televisions and look to the Golden Globes themselves for design inspiration in one way or another. And that she did, featuring a throwback camera and shimmering golden reel stretching across her middle and index fingers. CUTE!
