Though she's only 13 years old, Millie Bobby Brown has already made her mark on the industry and won hearts the world over. In addition to her character Eleven being the best part of Stranger Things (and serving up a killer beauty game), the young actress has already mastered red carpet beauty—and has some wise words to go along with her party-ready look (even though she admits she skips the after-parties).

To finish off her pretty-in-pink SAG Awards ensemble—pairing a sequined Calvin Klein dress with classic white Converse—Brown worked a coordinating hot-pink lip and shimmery eye shadow. But while her makeup look and slicked-back space buns were the epitomes of perfection, her manicure—the work of nail artist Steph Stone and Essie—added a final touch that drove the look home. "I had a lot of fun with tonight's look, including hair and makeup, so we came up with something playful!" Brown spilled to Allure. "I wanted my nails to play off the white and pink pops in my outfit, so I chose a nail art design with bold pink lines using Essie."

Stone began with Essie First Base Base Coat ($8) before applying two coats of Essie Nail Color in Blanc ($8). She then used a striping brush to apply a thin band of Essie Nail Color in Cascade Cool ($8), a bubblegum pink, before adding a finishing coat of Essie Speed Setter Top Coat ($8). Brown didn't end up taking home awards, but that doesn't mean she was anything short of a winner. "I always dance," says Brown. "Losing or winning, you should always dance!"
