Well, this just sealed the deal—Miranda Lambert is now officially our higher-than-heaven hair inspiration and our go-to gal for nail art ideas. Just look at the manicure she rocked last night at the 2012 American Country Awards!

Dying over her digits, too? We've rounded up a few ways to get this sassy style at home.

Nail decals:

We're huge—like huger than Lambert's hair huge—fans of Sally Hansen's Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips ($8.50 at They're easy to apply, last for days, and even easier to take off when you're ready for the next eccentric style. But the Sally decals only come in a traditional (meaning black-and-white) zebra-print, so we found this Kinepin Metallic Zebra Nail Sticker Decal Set (1.79 at that's available in hot pink. That's not all—they glitter, too!

Want to really go for it? Try these blinged-out pink-and-clear rhinestoned nail stickers ($5.99 at—they'd definitely fit right in with the crowd in Vegas, where surprisingly the ACAs were held last night. (Hm... Maybe that's why there were so many sequins and flashy embellishments on the red carpet?)

You could, if you're feeling crafty and have mastered the art of a steady hand, go the more literal DIY route and hand-paint itty-bitty zebra stripes to each one of your nails. In that case, we recommend starting with an electric-Pepto-Bismol-pink polish like Ciaté's Paint Pot in Knickerbockerglory ($15 at Use a nail design pen like Sally Hansen's Nail Art Pen in Black ($7.99 at Walgreens) and go, uh, wild.
