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?

Very creative and cute, I’d be amazed to see how she functions with those bows on her nails… I’d be nervous that they’d break off!

The guys’ lines aren’t THAT bad. Next to Zooooey anyone will look bad, eaclpisley characters whose names in movie credits would be guys who bring girl into their apartment to hook up with her model friends. LAY OFF.-horrendous sucker for enormous blue eyes and also person who would forgive Zooooey for anything after that Drunk History Funny or Die thing where she was Mary Todd Lincoln.
