Zooey Deschanel's best nail art moments just in time for the return of New Girl!

For the 2012 Emmys, Zooey Deschanel wore glittering television sets on her thumbs and sparkling jewels on her other fingers. The complex nail design was created by celebrity manicurist Tom Bachik.

For this crisscross design, Zooey pulled in blues, greens, and glitter for a Spring-inspired manicure.

As a songwriter, Zooey decided to honor her fellow wordsmiths with this alphabet stencil design.

There is no doubt that sailing was on Zooey's mind when she got this nautical-inspired manicure.

At a special screening of New Girl, Zooey rocked a striped manicure with a small heart accent on each nail.

Zooey sported a 3D manicure at the 2012 Critics' Choice Awards that mixed a diamond bow with summery stripes. Her inspiration for the manicure was a vintage Victorian beach.

A black and red checkerboard design with gold accents matched Zooey's sparkling ensemble to a T at the 2012 ESPY Awards.

Zooey embraced the film theme at the 2013 Golden Globes with a movie reel manicure designed by none other than Tom Bachik.

Zooey attended the Fox New Girl preview with a monotone purple French manicure.

At the 2012 Golden Globes, Zooey hit the red carpet with a tuxedo manicure that you can re-create with a little patience, and a lot of dexterity.

Zooey Deschanel is the queen of quirky nail art designs. With the season three premiere of New Girl airing last week, it seemed high time to take a peek back at her best nail art moments. Flip through this roundup of her best manicures to inspire an impromptu trip to the salon - and even some DIY nail sessions at home.
