The New Girl had one of the Golden Globes’ most memorable manicures. But just how did Zooey Deschanel’s daisy nails come to be? Monday night, we heard about the creative process from the man responsible for ‘em, L’Oreal Paris’ Global Nail Expert and artist extraordinaire Tom Bachik. “The inspiration for this was playing off of her dress…and her personality,” he said. “For Zooey ,you can’t just put on some swirly stripes, it’s got to be cute and also glamorous.” And her manicures always are.
“A couple of days before the red carpet, I’m like ‘so what are you thinking for nails’ and she writes back ‘flowers,’” Bachik recounted. After thinking about the various floral options–from tulips and roses to orchids and gardenias, the pair settled on one that fused glamour and a sense of lightheartedness– a metallic “Vintage Lux Daisy” manicure.
