The Low-Down on Michelle and AnnaLynne's Manicures for Charity

Posted on

Anna Lynne McCord and Michelle Trachtenberg may play scheming high society bad girls on their hit CW shows 90210 and Gossip Girl, but in real life, the two fashion-savvy stars are all about lending a hand–quite literally–to help a good cause. The duo stepped out in Hollywood Thursday to kick off Sally Hansen’s Color that Cares event, offering free manicures to the masses to support bone marrow donor center DKMS, which recruits donors for leukemia patients. “When you come in and get a manicure, you get swabbed and could end up becoming a real-life donor,” explained Michelle, who opted for a “teal, jadey green” color called Fairy Teal. Style-maven Anna Lynn McCord, never one to shy from bold nails, took the do-good opportunity to get two manicures. “I used Calypso Blue,” the actress told PEOPLE. “I initially started out with grass slippers, and then I decided to get crazy and empower more people to get their nails done, so right now I’m rocking a very very bright blue…they’re pretty fabulous if I do say so.” So after enduring a tough day of pampering, what was 90210‘s sexy siren going to do? Eat Taco Bell. “I went there last night on the way home from the airport, and I will probably eat there again today and every 24-hour period–I’m not really a big diet girl.” –Gillian Koenig; reporting by Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester
