Now that’s one way to put a new twist on an accent nail! Thursday night at The Hollywood Reporter’s Emmys party in West Hollywood, Allison Williams lacquered up in a nude manicure, with a sole black digit bearing the logo of her show, Girls. Because the design is so crisp, we’re thinking it’s the work of a customized Minx overlay, and we love how she’s representing for the cast in such a creative way. If you want to freehand a similar look, we recommend working with fine-tipped nail art pens like NPW’s set ($14 for five; nordstrom.com) to get the most-precise design possible. Trouble holding a steady hand? Add a layer of matte nail polish before you start painting on a design. The shine-free finish removes any ridges from the base of your nail, and makes application a breeze. Do you like Allison’s manicure? Tell us in the comments!
