People Editorial Guidelines Published on June 21, 2012 04:00 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Courtesy Zooey Deschanel; Inset: Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic After donning tuxes for the Golden Globes earlier this year, Zooey Deschanel’s nails got all dolled up again this week, this time for the Critics’ Choice TV Awards. The actress chose a lemon yellow hue for her nails Monday, giving the backstory to BellaSugar. “Because it’s summertime, I was sort of inspired by a Victorian beach theme, when you’d see the old-fashioned bathers with the little bathing costumes and the little changing booths on the beach,” she shared. “That’s what I thought of with the stripes.” Deschanel finished several of her nails with sparkle polish, and added crystallized bows to her ring fingers. According to Twitter, the look came courtesy of Beverly Hills salon CHI Nail Bar. In recent weeks, Deschanel has shared photos of her fun manicures — one nautical-inspired look, one with delicate lines at the tips and another blue-on-blue (that she did herself!). Her explanation for all the looks? Simply put, “I really like nail art.” Tell us: What kind of manicure are you rocking this week? SEE MORE STYLE STANDOUTS FROM THE CRITICS’ CHOICE AWARDS!
