She left the Golden Globes empty-handed — sorry, New Girl — but Zooey Deschanel’s hands were pretty happy anyway. Before hitting the red carpet, the actress posted a photo of her fingernails, which were all done up with bow ties and buttons.

“I am wearing a gown but my nails are wearing tuxedos!!!” she Tweeted, along with a picture of the nifty nail art. The star’s gown was a custom Prada dark-green silk dress with an open back; the top featured black and emerald-green glass pearls.

Though Deschanel’s critically acclaimed show didn’t win any awards, the newly single actress seemed to have a great time, arriving at the Globes with sister Emily (a new mom and the star of Bones) and hanging out with good pal and former costar, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Tell us: What do you think of Deschanel’s nails?
