Lupita Nyong'o was the “it girl” of the Golden Globes. Named to almost every best-dressed list, the “12 Years a Slave” actress showed she was a trendsetter. She opted for a nude, sparkly nail polish from beauty maker Deborah Lippmann. I found out from Lippmann how she created the look: After prepping Nyong'o's hands with a cuticle oil and hand cream, she applied a layer of Gel Lab Base Coat, one coat of Naked, a sheer clean bare beige lacquer, and Diamonds and Pearls, an iridescent freshwater-pearl sheer shimmer. Find Naked and Diamonds and Pearls for $17 each at deborahlippmann.com and Sephora stores nationwide.
