Tyra Banks certainly earned her stripes at the Flawsome Ball in New York City, where the America's Next Top Model host matched her manicure to the graphic pattern on her white illusion dress. While the supermodel nailed the exact design, the effect isn't too matchy-matchy, thanks to a darker color palette. To create a similar look, use a nail art polish (we love Orly's version, $5; orlybeauty.com), which has a built-in, fine-tipped brush, for perfecting the chic chevron effect. If you have trouble holding a steady hand, use pieces of tape to section off the V-shaped pattern, then fill in using short, precise strokes. Be sure to let the base coat dry completely before sticking the tape to your nail, otherwise the polish will get pulled off when you remove the strips.
