Zooey Deschanel showed off a smashing monochrome manicure at the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards last night (22 September) and if there was a prize for the most fabulous nails, she'd definitely have, er, nailed it!

Held at the Nokia Theatre in LA, the event was a veritable who's who of the small screen and Zooey worked it for her hit comedy show New Girl with by far the best manicure to hit the red carpet.

Zooey look stunning in a floor-length ice blue J.Mendel dress, but as ever our eyes were drawn to her nails, having had a close-up glimpse of them earlier on in the day (above).

These pics came courtesy of her favourite celebrity manicurist Tom Bachik, who worked his magic on Zooey's nails in preparation for the ceremony.

Tom has been responsible for many of our favourite nail trends recently including Jennifer Lopez's sexy nude nail art and Zooey's purple French manicure earlier this year.

And as ever, the A-list nail guru has pulled off a real beauty with this cute, monochrome look.

Wanna know how?

Well, first Tom painted Zooey's nails with a white L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Polish, £4.99,

Then he grabbed a Models Own Nail Art Pen in Black, £6,, and drew a cross on each nail to split them into four sections.

After filling in two diagonal squares on each nail with the black nail pen, he then used black and white sequins to create a domino-like effect that we love.

And the thing we love even more?

The fact that it looks pretty fabulous, yet doesn't seem too tricky to achieve at home.

Best get to it then...
