Who isn't thirsty for a drink of True Blood
this season? At the Season 4 premiere in LA on Tuesday night, Anna Paquin
stepped out with hubby and costar Stephen Moyer wearing a Versus LBD with a purple sequined corset bodice. Known as a daring style maven with a taste for high-fashion designers, Anna worked the designer look all the way down to her Brian Atwood Maniac pumps and even in her manicure!
Before hitting the red carpet, the lady sought a vampy transformation with celebrity nail stylist Jenna Hipp
, who also painted Anna's nails a deep blue for her wedding day. Here, Jenna gives us the 411 on how you can get Anna's True Blood
manicure at home! Stress Remedy ($48, 8ml)
Jenna began with a pressure point massage using Hope Gillerman Organics
' Stress Remedy and Travel Remedy aromatherapy oils to promote circulation and relax the muscles. When applied behind the knees, a bit of peppermint int he Tension Remedy oil instantly gave a bit of relief to Anna's tired limbs—she had been up and shooting since 5:30 am!
Decléor Aromessence Nails serum ($52, .5oz)
Next Jenna shaped Anna's nails "poval," or a pointy oval, using a crystal glass file ($12) from Nailing Hollywood
Before applying color, Jenna used a foundation brush to apply Decléor
's Aromessence Nails serum—infused with myrrh, lemon and parsley—to the tops of Anna's hands.
When it came to color, Jenna says Anna knew exactly what she wanted:
Anna is a genius when it comes to choosing nail polishes to layer. She always has an exact, clear vision in her mind and knows just what she wants—even if I need to paint five or six options to get it just right. When Anna saw Dior's Purple Revolution topped with OPI's Light My Sapphire, she said with a big smile, 'Yes, this is it! Now let's get on with it!' The way she goes about her look is very outside the box. I always learn something when I'm with her ( I painted her nails for her wedding where she created a deep midnight blue concoction).
