Pastel pink nails are a red carpet mainstay, but honestly a bit predictable, so we did a double take when we spotted this elaborate (and blinged-out) mani on actress Genesis Rodriguez at last night’s Critics’ Choice Awards. On hand to support her film Big Hero 6,  nominated for Best Animated Feature, Rodriguez matched her elaborate “negative space” mani to her sweeping blue cutout gown and diamond-adorned hands.

For a similar look, we suggest first applying a base coat before polish to add a sleek finish to bare nails. Once you've painted on two coats of polish, tweak any mistakes with a corrector pen--we like Sephora's ($5; sephora.com). For a more intricate mani like Rodriguez's, attach jewels studs ($2; wiinoshop.com), securing with glue, like IBD Brush-On Gel Resin ($4; sallybeauty.com),  or use striping tape ($5; sallybeauty.com) and cut with cuticle clippers once you've reached the desired length.
