We may have nearly fainted when Beyoncé strolled into the 2013 Presidential Inauguration sporting beautiful loose curls. But once the star grabbed the microphone to belt out the national anthem, our eyes zoomed in on her bright manicure.

For her musical spectacular on Captiol Hill, Beyoncé tapped celebrity manicurist Lisa Logan to deck out her digits in hot orange nail polish by NCLA called "I'm With the Band" (similar to Red Carpet Manicure's "Tangerine On The Rocks"). "When Beyoncé walked in, she just plainly said, 'I want orange.' So orange it was!" said Logan.

Even though it wasn't a blatantly patriotic nail color like red or blue, the neon hue was perfect as it accentuated Beyoncé's bronze complexion and emerald green Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Do you think the songstress made the right choice with orange nails for the inauguration? Tell us your thoughts in the comments section.
